Interviewer: But maybe do you want to give Katherine Hepburn a run for her money?
Ha!Come on,Meryl,you can beat that bitch!
I don’t know what my feelings do when Kate and Meryl fans are like this… I LOVE THEM BOTH SO MUCH. I JUST WANT TO LOVE THEM BOTH AND NOT FEEL ANXIETY ABOUT IT. *creys*
Also, it makes the stupid side of me want to say BUT ALL FOUR OF KATE’S OSCARS WERE FOR BEST ACTRESS. SOIFHJVPSIDFHV AND THEN I HATE MYSELF. BECAUSE I LOVE THEM BOTH SO MUCH AND I DON’T THINK I’D BE ABLE TO PICK BETWEEN THEM.
See, no one ever said anything about picking between the two…? That’s your own personal war to rage upon yourself, being a fan of both fine ladies. [As you should!!! Wave that Fan Flag high!] As for me, well, I think you know whose corner I’m in. Because this is a boxing match, now? DAMN STRAIGHT, IT’S A FIGHT ‘TILL THE DEATH; DOESN’T MATTER THAT ONE OF THE OPPONENTS IS LEGIT SAND, AT THIS POINT.
Having said that, I have never seen a Hepburn fan — at least, not within my circle — talk that way about Meryl. Not even once. Not even myself. I’m entitled to feel a little protective over my favorite’s “status” — and it’s purely bragging rights, but I know no other way, yo — yet I stop at derogatory name-calling.
…do you need for me to explain the “beef” Hepburn had with Streep? Like, is that what all of this hostility is about? Or are all Streep’s fans just naturally crude? [Hyperbole, obvi.] Because, God forbid, an actor voices her opinion on another — off record — as if that’s something completely unlike what human beings do. “Click click click,” was all she said, in dismissal of Meryl’s Method training. It isn’t beyond the realm of possibility that her comment was fueled by jealously—-can an actor from such a background possibly be that good? And, hey, at least she didn’t say Meryl’s feet were “horribly big and distracting!” She saved that chestnut for Glenn Close. Oh. Anyway, I’m sure Streep and Close are perfectly beatific in their personal lives, yes?
And it’s so clear that Streep is acting up there. So maybe Hepburn’s “click click click” comment wasn’t too off-mark. W/e w/e.
Oh, fuck it: And it’s KathArine.
