Paramount Pictures presents 
Florence Foster Jenkins 
Starring Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson, and Nina Arianda.
Set in 1940s New York, Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her "husband" and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge.

My buddy Chris Azzopardi continues to collect gay allies speaking with the legendary Meryl Streep in advance of her Florence Foster Jenkins.

On her most important contribution to LGBT fans:

Oh, gosh. To me, I mean, Angels [in America] is such an important piece of history, and I felt really lucky to be part of that because I don't think there was anything like it before. It really felt like being at the Democratic National Convention in the moment that Hillary shattered the glass ceiling—a big deal. The Hours was important, too. And of course I got to kiss Allison Janney, which was a perk! [Laughs]

On when people lovingly imitate her:

I love it when they do other people! [Laughs] I don't know. I'm sure it would tickle me, but I'm just not—I don't have a distance on myself yet that I probably should have. It's like when my kids imitate me. I laugh but I kind of don't like it. [Laughs]

On her connection with LGBTQ people:

I just can't remember when LGBT people were not in my life.

On whether the queen of biopics wants one made of her own life:

I hope that doesn't happen! You know, I treasure my life and the fact that it's not on Facebook, and I really love my solitude and privacy - all these old-fashioned concepts. In a job where I'm with hundreds of people all the time and going on these press things, I just really love to get away and not be in the chattering world. That's really important to me. So, I hope I fade into oblivion.

More Meryl here.

Meryl Streep is pretty baller already, but reading her memories of how she became so open to LGBT people early on is likely to make her even more of an ally favorite.

Meryl Streep Brushes Up On Her Donald Trump Comments (0)

Meryl Streep put Darrell Hammond to shame the annual Shakespeare in the Park gala Monday night, gussying herself up to look even more like Donald Trump than she once looked like Margaret Thatcher.

Via Daily Mail:

Meryl, 66, looked unrecognizable in Trump's signature dark suit and red tie, layered over a padded suit.

To complete the effect the Hollywood veteran painted her face orange and donned a blonde wig to replicate The Donald's famous coif.

The actress performed a rendition of Cole Porter's “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” alongside Tony-winner and good friend Christine Baranski for the annual event which pays tribute to William Shakespeare.

The duet from the musical Kiss Me Kate, which is based on the Bard's play The Taming of The Shrew, is traditionally sung by male gangsters and advises men how to woo ladies by reciting Shakespeare lines.

Streep is a Hillary Clinton supporter.

Here is the first poster for Florence Foster Jenkins, the movie about the world's worst singer, who funded her own ill-advised career.

This sounds like another Oscar nomination for Meryl Streep. Can't wait to see it this August.
