Melissa McCarthy Describes Meeting Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Posted on January 26, 2012
Melissa said, "So I'm already in some weird altered state talking to Brad and Angelina. They're so nice and chatty and really bubbly. Finally, I got a little weird and I was like you have to stop for a minute because it's a lot visually to take in. I said that to them. They just kind of laughed. I said, no really. It is a lot visually to take in. She's like weirdly glowing. She's so beautiful. He's kind of cute too. And then I was like ok. I'm sorry. I needed to like regroup because they're kind of a lot."
Melissa said she was still talking to Angie and Brad when her idol Meryl Streep showed up. Melissa explained, "As I'm talking to them somebody is pulling on my hand and I hear Melissa, Melissa. And I turned around and she said, Hi, I'm Meryl. Literally like my brain snapped in two. And then I really didn't know what to say. I just kept going 'Oh, my god. You're Meryl Streep.' And she was chatting like a normal human being. And I said, 'oh my god. I'm sorry.' I thought over the years so many things if I ever got to meet you what I would say. This is not it. And, she goes 'Oh my god. Don't even worry about it."
For some reason I felt I need to bookend it with and repeat. 'Oh my god. You're Meryl Streep.'" She is just so hilarious. By the way, that's Jimmy Kimmel in drag sitting next to her. Take a look:
