Meryl Streep is prepared to cut a b—h when it comes to prestigious awards. Just ask The Heat star Sandra Bullock.
On The Graham Norton Show this Saturday, June 29, the 48-year-old explained her mock-rivalry with Meryl.
Apparently, the two stars threw down in 2009, the year that Sandra was nominated for several awards for The Blind Side and Meryl was just as critically-hailed for Julie & Julia.
In the interview embedded below — the good part coming around the 21:30 mark — Graham asks Sandra about the awards show in which she and Meryl literally kissed-and-made up, locking lips on stage.
"You mean, where she asked for it?" Sandra says. "The backstory, which no one knows — they're like, 'Why did you go and kiss Meryl?' And I go, 'Who wouldn't want to kiss Meryl?' But she was egging me on the entire time. Like, she was heckling, like... [makes nails-on-chalkboard sound]"
Sandy also talks about feeling thrilled when she heard she was receiving flowers from Meryl during the award season.
"And up comes this nice bottom part," Sandra explains, "with, like, three dead orchids on it, with a note that said, 'Die, b—h. Love, Meryl.' It was no-holds-barred! I had to take Meryl down."
And take Meryl down she did: Sandra won the Oscar that year.
