Meryl Streep & Hugh Grant's Love In 'Florence Foster Jenkins' Is Realistic In Spite Of Infidelities!

Meryl Streep is all smiles while hitting the red carpet at the premiere of her film Florence Foster Jenkins held at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 Theater on Tuesday (August 9) in New York City.

The 67-year-old actress was joined by her co-stars Hugh Grant, Nina Arianda and Simon Helberg, as well as Meryl‘s daughter Louisa Gummer, Simon‘s wife Jocelyn Towne, Kelly Rutherford, Paul Haggis and designer Zac Posen with his mother Susan.

Meryl recently opened up about her and Hugh‘s love in the film and how it should not be dismissed in spite of the infidelities.

“I think especially, peering into other people’s relationships, it’s almost always not what you think it is from the outside, and I think it’s an accurate portrayal of realistic, delusional love,” Meryl explained (via CBS News). “It’s realistic because it is what it is and there is illusion and they both prop up… in this bubble of happiness.”

“I mean one of the genius things that Stephen did that’s embedded in the film is even in the margins, you feel the warmth,” Meryl added. “There’s so many analogies to now, figuring out what makes life worth living. Love and art, as far as I’m concerned, is right smack in the middle. So the compromises that people make to keep their happiness intact — I think that’s all in the service of good.”

Hugh Grant Was 'Terrified' of Starring With Meryl Streep in 'Florence Foster Jenkins'

Hugh Grant wears a dark blazer as he arrives at Good Morning America to discuss his new movie Florence Foster Jenkins on Monday (August 8) in New York City.

That same day, the 55-year-old English actor headed to AOL Build to continue promoting the film, which he stars in alongside Meryl Streep.

Hugh recently revealed that he was “terrified” to play Meryl‘s on-screen husband.

“I was terrified of her with her 19 Oscar nominations,” Hugh said during his GMA appearance. “But actually she was delightful and raised my game.”

“I used to ask her every day, ‘Meryl, are you nervous?,’” he continued. “For the first week or so she’d tell me, ‘Yes, yes, I’m nervous,’ and after two weeks she got bored of me asking and said, ‘No, I’m not nervous anymore.’”

Hugh also called Meryl an “actress of genius” and said she was a “big reason” he returned to acting after taking a break in recent years.

“I had moved on slightly,” Hugh explained. “I was doing other stuff in life. I had been involved in various political things in Britain. But occasionally it’s lovely to dip my toe back in lake showbiz.”
