Meryl And Hillary: Bestest Of Friends

BFFs? Meryl Streep and Hillary Clinton looked pretty chummy on Saturday night.The Oscar-winning actress and the Secretary of State met up at the Kennedy Center Honors gala, held at the State Department. (The big Kennedy shebang was last night, in which David Letterman, Dustin Hoffman, Buddy Guy, Natalia Makarova, and Led Zep were honored.) According to the AP, Streep used her iPhone to snap a photo of the two powerful women. Earlier this year, Streep compared herself to the former First Lady, conveniently forgetting to say that she had played a version of Hillary on the big screen in “The Manchurian Candidate” remake. “I find a lot of similarities,” Streep remarked when introducing Clinton not long ago at the Women in the World Summit. “We’re roughly the same age, we both have two brothers — mine are annoying — we both grew up in middle-class homes with spirited, big-hearted mothers who encouraged us to do something valuable and interesting with our lives. We both went from public high schools to distinguished women’s colleges … We both went on to graduate school at Yale.”
