The worst parts of Meryl Streep’s arrogant speech at the Golden Globes is these nuggets:
“Once, when I was standing around on the set one day, whining about something — you know we were gonna work through supper or the long hours or whatever, Tommy Lee Jones said to me, “Isn’t it such a privilege, Meryl, just to be an actor?” Yeah, it is, and we have to remind each other of the privilege and the responsibility of the act of empathy.”
She tells the tale of how a Harvard grad had to tell a Yale grad how lucky they are – while surrounded by crew members who don’t have their own trailers or assistants.
This is AFTER she craps on what she sees as “low” culture (meaning the stuff ‘those flyover people enjoy’)
“So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. And if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.”
We’re privileged and should feel honored that we will save the rabble from their idiotic entertainments and enlighten them to their own human condition.
Honey, you’re just an actress. You don’t mean that much in the big picture. Settle down.
