Meryl Streep & Steven Spielberg Share What Scares Them About America's Political Divide

Meryl Streep and Steven Spielberg, who just worked together on the film The Post, are opening up about the political divide in America and what scares them about it.

The stars are joined on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue by the film’s screenwriter Liz Hannah and producer’s Amy Pascal and Kristie Macosko Krieger.

Spielberg says what scares him is “that we’ve lost the majority of good listeners, that our conversations have turned into skirmishes… at dinner-table conversations outside of California, I’m completely mute or I get into these huge rows. The gray and the blue have become the blue and the red. And it is as vast a chasm as our nation faced before the Civil War. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“We don’t know where north is,” Meryl added. “People disagree on what actual facts are. Whether this table is really a table.”

Meryl Streep Tells Story of Fighting Off an Abuser with Cher

Meryl Streep is opening up about her own experiences with physical violence and how she sprung into action to fight off an abuser.

The three-time Oscar-winning actress detailed her personal experiences while speaking at an event for the Committee to Protect Journalists earlier in the week.

Meryl says that for one of the instances, her friend Cher was present.

“I learned something about life that I wouldn’t have known otherwise and I was lucky because my instincts served me well,” she said (via People). “In one instance, I played dead and waited until the blows stopped — watching like people say you do from about 50 feet above from where I was beaten. And in the second instance, someone else was being abused and I just went completely nuts and went after this man. Ask Cher — she was there. And the thug ran away, it was a miracle.”

Meryl Streep Says Experiences With Violence Changed Her On A 'Cellular Level'

Meryl Streep is all smiles while attending the Citymeals on Wheels 31st Annual Power Lunch for Women on Thursday (November 16) held at the Rainbow Room in New York City.

The Academy Award winner appeared at a separate event the day before, where she praised journalists for their bravery, telling the audience she did “know something about real terror”.

Meryl recounted two incidents, one in which she said she was attacked and “played dead and waited until the blows stopped, watching like people say you do from like 50 feet above where I was beaten”.

Meryl then described another incident when she was with Cher when she saw a man attacking a woman. In that case, she said she “went completely nuts” and chased the man off. “I was changed by these events on a cellular level because women do know something particular about coming to the danger place,” Meryl continued. “We come to it disadvantaged through the many millennia preceding our present moment and because of our vulnerability we anticipate danger, we expect it.”

“We’re hyper alert to it, we have the 360 on the whole room,” Meryl added. “”We have measurably more acute hearing, we have a better sense of smell, we notice details, what people are wearing, their tics and peculiarities.”

Also pictured inside at the Citymeals on Wheels event: Liam Neeson, Kathie Lee Gifford and Christie Brinkley.

The event raised over $1 million to provide nearly 136,000 meals to New York’s City’s homebound elderly.

Meryl Streep Says Resurfaced Interview About Dustin Hoffman is Not Accurate

Meryl Streep is coming to Dustin Hoffman‘s defense after an old interview surfaced where she said he touched her breast.

In a 1979 interview with Time, Meryl reportedly said that her Kramer vs. Kramer co-star Dustin groped her the first time they met.

“He came up to me and said, ‘I’m Dustin — burp — Hoffman,’ and he put his hand on my breast. What an obnoxious pig, I thought,” Meryl said during the interview.

Meryl says that Dustin apologized for the incident and the quote was not an “accurate rendering of that meeting.”

“There was an offense and it is something for which Dustin apologized. And Meryl accepted that,” her rep told E! News.
