Today’s British Sunday Times newspaper has a (rather strange) cover of Meryl and Alec Baldwin and a very funny interview with the two inside. Thanks to Alvaro for the scans, be sure to read the article in the magazines archive, an excerpt can be found below the Image Libraries’ previews. Enjoy your Sunday!
Streep: At this age it’s unusual for somebody to do a love scene, to be making love. Yeah, that is unusual. But that is just how benighted we are. Because, you know, we still are alive. It’s you and I, baby. It’s authentic. The whole idea that you have to look a certain way and be a certain age to earn love is ridiculous. We love what we love. It doesn’t matter what shape it is. It’s thrilling to see real people on screen. The thing that broke that little barrier for me was Julie & Julia, where everyone said, “Isn’t it remarkable that a tall overweight woman and a short bald man could be in love?” Well, yeah? You know what I mean? You’re alive.
Baldwin [mock angry]: And the day you brought Stanley Tucci to the set of our film, I hated you for doing that. I thought, what a rude thing of you to do.
Streep: Did you really?
Baldwin: I was soooo hurt that you did that, because you and he had such chemistry. You were lovely together. It was like bringing your ex-husband to the set.
Streep: Oh, my God, I never thought of that.
Baldwin: Obviously you didn’t! I was your man in this movie, and you brought Stanley there? My penis telescoped up into my body. You know what? I’m going to do one of those movies like 300, where I’m all muscled up, and I’ve got my boobs all oiled and everything.
Streep: And they’ll be going, “Alec Baldwin’s back! He’s back!”
