Most actresses wouldn’t dare utter a word against Meryl Streep, but when Jennifer Lawrence won the Golden Globe for best actress on Sunday, she didn’t hesitate to make a joke of beating out the esteemed actress.
“What does it say? I beat Meryl,” Lawrence, 22, said upon receiving her Globe for her Silver Linings Playbook role on Sunday and inspecting the inscription.
But the star’s comment wasn’t as mean spirited as some may think.
