On Thursday, Meryl Streep was tasked with presenting Amal with the 2020 Gwen Ifill Press Freedom Award at the online ceremony for the DPJ International Press Freedom Awards. The lawyer was being honored for her work defending journalists and their legal rights at the United Nations last year. During her acceptance speech, Amal told Streep, “You are an inspiration as a woman, as an artist, as a press-freedom advocate.” Clooney jokingly added, “I know I can’t ever hope to win the number of awards that you’ve won, but it does occur to me that we have something special in common, which is that we’ve both been married to my husband. And honestly, the fact that you did it as Mr. and Mrs. Fantastic Fox just makes that so much less awkward.” Amal is of course referring to her husband’s voice role opposite Streep in Wes Anderson’s 2009 stop-motion animation film Fantastic Mr. Fox. Meryl’s introduction and Amal’s speech have been uploaded by the Committee to Protect Journalists.
