The cast of Adam McKay’s latest satire “Don’t Look Up” has been on the press circuit the past couple of weeks. Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, and Jonah Hill star in McKay’s film about scientists discovering a comet on a crash course to Earth, but the general public and political officials deny its severity.
On Monday night, while appearing on “The Late Show,” Lawrence explained a comical generational misunderstanding while working with Streep. She stated that she had been calling Streep GOAT but the legendary actress misunderstood the compliment as a commentary on her age.
However, literally personifying being the greatest of all time, Streep didn’t seem to care either way. The fellow Oscar winner explained:
“We offhandedly call Meryl the GOAT [the greatest of all time]. And we were doing a photoshoot and I said something like GOAT and Meryl kind of said, ‘That’s right. Just tell the old goat where to go.’ I was like, ‘Meryl, you know that GOAT means greatest of all time, right?’ And she was like, ‘Oh, no!'”
