Hollywood elites never tire of self aggrandizement. And as the stroking of egos goes, Anna Wintour and Meryl Streep go over the top with gooey sweet compliments to each other. So far that Anna encourages Meryl to run for office, because she’s so, you know, suited for the job.
Breitbart has the story:
In a brief interview with Streep inside her office this week, Vogue editor-in-chief and Condé Nast creative director Anna Wintour told the actress she should run for public office. Streep appears on the cover of the magazine’s December issue.
“Are you going to run for office? You should! You should,” Wintour told Streep with a smile.
The three-time Oscar-winner promptly laughed off the suggestion: “No! Are you mad? You should. You’re a good boss. I’m a boss that’s beat up, at my house. The one who gets the last say in anything.”
“This moment is absolutely thrilling,” Streep said. “This is a door that will not be closed. We’ve got a foot in there now. And it’ll be very difficult for people to conduct their lives the way they have in the past. ‘Oh, that’s just locker room talk. Oh, that’s just the way men are.’ No, it’s not. We’re civilized people, and we learn from our mistakes.”
When Anna Wintour speaks, Hollywood listens, so could we see a Meryl Streep candidacy? Maybe. But something just says the rest of the country would’t take her as seriously as she takes herself.
