Harper’s Bazaar has called the model ‘nothing short of terrifying’. It came complete with a replica of the golden gown she wore for the 2012 Oscars, at which she won the Best Actress going for her turn as Margaret Thatcher in ‘The Iron Lady’. ...

    Robert De Niro sends letter to Meryl Streep praising her Trump takedown

    Robert De Niro once expressed his desire to punch Donald Trump in the face, so it stands to reason that he would wholeheartedly approve of his old chum Meryl Streep’s message during her Golden Globes speech on Sunday night. In fact, De Niro sent Streep a letter following her withering takedown of the president-elect’s behaviour, as she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award – a gong De Niro himself won in 2011.

    MMA fans are NOT happy with what Meryl Streep said in her Golden Globes speech

    Donald Trump isn’t the only one who isn’t happy about Meryl Streep’s barnstorming Golden Globes speech… fans of mixed martial arts are bit upset too. On Sunday night, in a broadside against the president-elect’s anti-immigration rhetoric, the actress warned that if the US starts expelling foreigners, all that will be left to watch will be ‘football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts’. #MerylStreep is a gifted actor, but to deny mixed martial artists are both gifted athletes AND artists is naive and offensive.

    Not content with describing Meryl Streep as a “Hillary lover” late on Sunday after the actress blasted the president-elect in her Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, Donald Trump hit up Twitter in the early hours of Monday to lash out further.
