Meryl Streep's Controversial Berlin Film Festival Comments Explained in Full Transcript

Meryl Streep is all smiles while stepping out to speak at the Jury Reception during the 2016 Berlin Film Festival on Wednesday (February 17) in Berlin, Germany.

The 66-year-old actress was joined by British actor Clive Owen.

Meryl recently came under fire for how she answered a question about if she’s following any Arab films.

It seems her quote was truncated in a lot of publications.

“Yes, in fact I’ve just seen a film called Theeb, which I loved. I saw Timbuktu recently, but I don’t know very much about the Middle East, and yet I’ve played a lot of different people from a lot of different cultures,” Meryl actually said (via Awards Daily). “The thing that I’ve noticed is that there is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture. And, after all, we’re all from Africa originally; we’re all Berliners, we’re all Africans, really. We have critic on our jury, we have a director on our jury, we have actors, a photographer, cinematographer; people will be looking at different things in these films, but we’re human beings, and film is an emotional experience. We’re going to make these decisions based on what our head wants to say, but we’re first attacked in the heart.”

Meryl Streep & Clive Owen Serve on Berlin Film Festival Jury

Meryl Streep stops to pose while stepping out for a photo call at the 2016 Berlin Film Festival held at Hotel Mandala on Wednesday (February 10) in Berlin, Germany.

The 66-year-old actress was joined by British actor Clive Owen, both of whom are serving on the jury.

In fact, Meryl is the president this year.

“It is a thrill to return to the festival under any circumstances, but it is with great relish and anticipation I look forward to jury duty,” Meryl said back in October when it was announced. “The responsibility is somewhat daunting, as I have never been president of anything before, and I hope I can come up to the precedent set by the distinguished juries of preceding years. Grateful for the honor.”

Meryl Streep Slammed for Telling Reporters 'We're All Africans'

Meryl Streep and her fellow jury members, including Clive Owen, pose for photos at a press conference at the 2016 Berlinale International Film Festival on Thursday (February 11) in Berlin, Germany.

The 66-year-old actress is under fire for what she said when asked how she felt about being on an all-white jury.

“This jury is evidence that at least women are included and in fact dominate this jury, and that’s an unusual situation in bodies of people who make decisions. So I think the Berlinale is ahead of the game,” Meryl said. She was then asked by an Egyptian reporter about whether she would be able to judge films from other regions.

“I’ve played a lot of different people from a lot of different cultures. There is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture, and after all we’re all from Africa originally. Berliners, we’re all Africans, really,” Meryl continued. More Here! »

Billie Lourd holds her grandmother Debbie Reynolds‘ honorary Oscar while on stage at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ 2015 Governors Awards on Saturday night (November 14) at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Hollywood.

The 23-year-old Scream Queens actress was at the ceremony alongside her mom, Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, to accept the award for Debbie, who was too sick to attend the ceremony.

Meryl Streep was in attendance at the show to present the statue to Billie, who played an audio acceptance speech that Debbie recorded for the occasion.

“I’m heartbroken that I’m unable to be there in person to receive this extraordinary honor you have given me. So you could see how unbelievably happy you have made me. If joy could be weighed, this would be the most sizable rejoicing one could feel, especially if that one is me,” Debbie said in a statement.

FYI: Carrie is wearing a Libertine jacket, a Les Habitudes skirt, Thomas Wylde shoes, a Salvatore Ferragamo bag, and Neil Lane jewelry. Billie is wearing Lela Rose.
