National Treasure Meryl Streep Took Jennifer Lawrence Literally When She Called Her “The GOAT”

Jennifer Lawrence is back in the spotlight, and boy, have we missed watching her crack dry-humored jokes during interviews. After taking a three-year hiatus from acting, the soon-to-be mom is currently on a press tour to promote her forthcoming Netflix film Don’t Look Up, and her appearance on The Late Show Monday night was quite the entertaining treat to kick off the week. While discussing the movie’s star-studded cast, which also includes Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kid Cudi, Jennifer quipped, “I felt like garbage every day on that set,” as if she hasn’t won an Oscar. We love a modest queen.

The 31-year-old star went on to recall how she and her costars got in the habit of calling Meryl “the GOAT,” a nickname that stands for “Greatest Of All Time” — but Meryl was blissfully unaware of the slang abbreviation. “We were doing a photoshoot, and . . . Meryl kind of said, ‘That’s right, just tell the old goat where to go.’ And I was like, ‘Meryl, you know that GOAT means greatest of all time, right?'” Jennifer said. Yep, the iconic actress assumed her cast mates were literally calling her a farm animal, when in reality it was quite the opposite.

Meanwhile, fellow Don’t Look Up star Jonah Hill told the same story during a Tonight Show interview on Monday, adding more endearing details. “Today, we were today a press conference, and she was like, ‘Jonah is so comfortable with me, he’s been calling me a goat all week.’ She’s so cool, she wasn’t even offended by it!” Jonah said. “She was just like, ‘I guess he loves me and is calling me a goat.'” We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Meryl Streep is a national treasure we must protect at all costs.
