    I fell in love with Meryl Streep when I saw her looking up while Redford washes her hair in Out of Africa

    Ok but the title and the thumbnail for this video make it seem like they were actually arguing passionately (with each other) regarding their birth names. xDDD

    Meryl is a satanic high priestess....that means she kills children in their rituals, drinks their blood and eats flesh....she is gross! As are many in hollyweird.

    Mary Louise!!!!! That's her characters name on Big Little Lies! So it's actually her real name!

      it is probably how the character got her name. producers and writers like they can sneak something in on us peasants.

    That was hilarious but sad! I also love when Nicole lets her Ozzie accent shine through (as a Kiwi, I don't say that often!). She seems so genuine on the show.

    Super proud of Meryl, who pronounced the HaYn word ALOHA correctly, since i am a huge fan of hers! Unfortunately Nicole Kidman pronounced her mido name wrong but regained herself for knowing the meaning of her name correctly! Im assuming its her accent that made Hokulank sound like she said Hokilani, which wud mean something totally different! Meryl says it with the intention of the Spirit of Aloha which means LOVE and Hello!

    Maril Streep is boring as a person... annoying... maybe a good actress but that's it. Nicole leaps looks so fake... And bigger the ever before get real

    0:50 I haven't watched Sherlock, but I've seen a compilation-video, with one scene from Irene Adler (the naked lady, right?) and she did that as well, with a bit of...string I guess? Fabric?
