The 75th Golden Globes delivered some powerful moments, most notably Oprah Winfrey’s epic speech. One of the more lighthearted anecdotes occurred during the commercial break. A certain diva accidentally took Meryl Streep’s seat.
“Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break.. took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg 😮😮 Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat…,” tweeted Mariah Carey after the Golden Globes. She added, “(me) Dear Meryl, please forgive me!!! 🙌🙌 (MERYL STREEP) You can take my seat any time! 😂😂 💖💖💖💖”
During a stop on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Streep told her side of the story. Hilariously at that. “Bitch stole my seat!” Meryl jokingly said. The 68-year-old actress added “I came over and there she was, you know, next to Spielberg, sucking up. She said, ‘Oh my God they made me sit down because we were moving!’ But I said ‘No, no, stay there! I’ll sit in your lap!’ Because you know, it’d be comfy!”
Watch Meryl tell the amusing story below. I also added clips of Meryl failing an Oscar quiz about herself and talking about the marijuana cream her son bought her for Christmas.
