Meryl Streep Slams Donald Trump In Golden Globes 2017 Speech
Meryl Streep on Trump in powerful Golden Globes speech:
She echoed Hugh Laurie's comment about how the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is part of "the most vilified segments in American society right now" — Hollywood, foreigners and the press. "But who are we, and what is Hollywood anyway? It’s just a bunch of people from other places," she explained, outlining her New Jersey upbringing, plus the non-Los Angeles backgrounds of Sarah Paulson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Ruth Negga, Viola Davis, Dev Patel and Ryan Reynolds. "Where are their birth certificates?"
Streep wrapped up her moving speech with some tearful words of wisdom from her late friend, Carrie Fisher. "As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia said to me, 'Take your broken heart and turn it into art."
