In a shocking turn of events, three-time academy award winner Meryl Streep revealed she's been your mom your entire life. In a press release this past Monday sent from your mom's Hotmail account, Meryl/Mom said the following:
I've been Meryl Streep your whole life. I know this might come as a shock to you.
I know you have questions. You might be wondering why I didn't tell you earlier. It's because I loved watching you watch my movies without being embarrassed, honey. You want to know if anyone else knows. Literally everyone in the entire world knows except for you and your brother. You probably feel like you don't really know me anymore. But just know that I'm still the same person that you never knew I was. Am I going to stay married to your father? Of course not, love. Our entire marriage was just movie magic.
Some things from your childhood might be starting to make more sense now. Why were your dad and I fighting so much in 2003? We always told you it was because we disagreed about whether or not they should keep looking for Elizabeth Smart. But it was really because your dad was jealous that I was spending time with Denzel on his okay-at-best remake of The Manchurian Candidate.
That time in 2005 when you waited an extra hour and a half for me to pick you up from chess club? It wasn’t that I stopped at “a rummage sale I couldn’t refuse.” I was actually wrapping on The Devil Wears Prada. Why did I make you watch August: Osage County every weekend for two and a half years when you lived with us after college? Because I was proud of it. And why were there always those Oscars on our mantle? Well, now you know I didn’t win them off a drifter in a pie-eating contest.
I really hope this doesn't embarrass you too much, sweetheart. If you have any more questions, talk to my publicist.
Lol (lots of love),
P.S.-Daniel Day-Lewis is your brother. Connect the dots, honey.
Public reaction to the release has been mixed:
"I was as surprised as you were. What a talent our mom is."--Daniel Day-Lewis
"Just the fact that you didn't know this whole time has earned her yet another Best Actress nomination."--the Academy
"Well I know this probs shatters your entire reality for you, but at least she's not Glenn Close."--your friend Heather
