Meryl Streep watches the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The 72-year-old A-lister revealed she's a viewer of the Bravo reality series during a group interview in promotion of her latest movie Don't Look Up, as she opened up about climate change, and distractions in society from the overarching issue.
'It's life … it's right now,' said the three-time Academy Award winner. 'It's happening right now. And what do I do? I go in and watch the Housewives of Beverly Hills. I do that.'
The latest: Meryl Streep, 72, said she watches the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in a group interview in promotion of her latest movie Don't Look Up
Streep, who plays President Orlean in Don't Look Up, said she was 'just blown away' in seeing Don't Look Up, which tells the story of a pair of astronomers (played by Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio) trying to warn an indifferent public of an oncoming comet that will destroy the world.
'When I saw the film, I was just blown away, and I said [to director Adam McKay], "Give me a checklist. Give me the first three things we have to do,"' Streep said. 'It’s so energizing in a weird way, this film, because you come out and you go, "OK now. F*** it.
'This is what we have to pay attention to. It all flows from this. If we don’t survive, we won’t be able to watch Housewives or whatever."'
The revelation from the Summit, New Jersey-born actress drew a pleasantly surprised response from Lawrence, who is a professed fan of the Real Housewives and other reality TV franchises.

Lawrence told Vanity Fair in a 2014 interview: 'I do love my Real Housewives ... New York Housewives, and Beverly Hills, New Jersey and Atlanta Housewives. I mean, I love them all, but Miami - oh, my God! Miami is really special.'
Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen told TMZ in 2017 that he had creatively consulted with Lawrence about the franchises.
'I do ask her her opinion on things, and she gives them to me,' he said. 'I like to hear what her opinions are. She tells me who she likes and tells me who she doesn't like.'
