An article by Observer for C2C Gala with Meryl:
Is it a Bird? Is It a Plane? No, it’s Meryl Streep!
After dinner we headed over to have a chat with masochistic magician David Blaine. When we got nearer we realized that he was eating glass to the audience of Meryl Streep and Harvey Weinstein. The night was slowly loosing it’s grip on reality. After Ms. Streep ran away in disgust we asked him how he came to be involved in the organization.
His response: “Want to see a trick?”
Please no, not the glass. Mercifully he pulled out a pack of cards and proceeded to perform a whirlwind of card tricks. “You can’t tell anyone about these tricks because they are going to go in my new show,” he said as he pulled a folded four of spades from underneath my watch. Just as we actually got talking Ms. Streep was at the podium to present an award to Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano the directors of the French box office hit The Intouchables. Ms. Streep almost gave the dagger shaped award to the producer Mr. Weinstein.
“Do I give to you now…between the eyes?”
And that’s her reaction to him!
