Meryl Streep Gets Praised By Viola Davis: 'I Always Feel Like She Sees Me'

Viola Davis is opening up about her friendship with Meryl Streep, who wrote an essay about her after she was named one of Time magazine’s most influential people.

“What I love about Meryl is I always feel like she sees me,” Viola, 51, told ET while hitting the carpet at the Time 100 Gala on Tuesday night (April 25) in New York City. “I never feel like the words she has for me are haphazard. I feel like they’re very specific and they’re well thought out and that makes me feel good. It makes me feel like she really is a friend, that she really takes me in.”

“Besides the fact that it’s Meryl Streep, she really doesn’t have to give me anything, really,” Viola added. “When she just sends me a text message she doesn’t know I get so happy. I try to play it off, I really do, I’m like, ‘Oh ok well have a good day’ but I’m really like, ‘Oh my god, she texted me back!’”
