Meryl Streep & Tom Hanks' 'The Post' Gets Banned in Lebanon Over Steven Spielberg's Support for Israel!

Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep‘s latest film The Post has reportedly been banned in Lebanon due to director Steven Spielberg‘s ties to Israel.

The flick was presented to the Lebanese censorship board, a source told THR, but it was nixed, citing a “boycott Israel” list that includes Steven due to his Oscar-winning Holocaust film Schindler’s List (the 1993 film shot some scenes in Jerusalem).

Italia Film was set to release The Post in Lebanon on Jan. 18. A spokesperson for Steven‘s Amblin Entertainment says “he cannot comment because the company has not been told officially by the Lebanese distributor that the pic will not be released there because of censorship.”

Meryl Streep Is Shocked Tom Hanks Hasn't Been Oscar-Nominated Since 2001

Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep and Steven Spielberg post for photos at a photo call for The Post on Monday afternoon (January 15) in Milan, Italy.

During a recent interview, Meryl spoke about Tom‘s acting ability, and expressed her shock that he hadn’t received an Oscar nomination since 2001′s Castaway.

“That he hasn’t been nominated in 17 years, I’m actually shocked, because the work we’ve seen is at such a consistently high level. And this role [in The Post] of Ben Bradlee, in particular, has a dynamism. Tom steps outside of anything we’ve seen before,” Meryl told EW.

Steven Spielberg Reacts to Natalie Portman's All-Male Directing Shade Ahead of 'The Post' UK Premiere!

Meryl Streep keeps it chic and sophisticated while hitting the red carpet at the European premiere of her Golden Globe-nominated film The Post held at The Odeon Leicester Square on Tuesday (January 10) in London, England.

The 68-year-old actress was joined at the event by her co-star Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, as well as director Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw.

The evening before, Steven weighed in on Natalie Portman‘s viral moment from Sunday’s Golden Globes, where she took a shot at the lack of gender diversity in the Best Director category.

“There’s also a watershed happening right now, slowly, maybe not fast enough, for women directors,” Steven, 71, expressed (via ET) at the 2018 National Board of Review Awards Gala. “I mean you have [Wonder Woman director] Patty Jenkins. We have some amazing women that have come forward, you know Mudbound and Lady Bird. This is a pretty incredible year, and I think you’ll be seeing some nominations. I’m predicting at the Oscars this year for a woman director, if not several.”

FYI: Meryl is wearing an Alexander McQueen outfit, Alexandre Birman shoes, and Mr. Leight opticals.
