Meryl Streep on Dustin Hoffman: 'Kramer vs Kramer slap was overstepping'

Meryl Streep on Dustin Hoffman: 'Kramer vs Kramer slap was overstepping'

When claims against Hoffman first surfaced regarding his inappropriate behaviour, an interview with Streep featured in a 1979 issue of TIME Magazine resurfaced regarding a particularly disturbing instance.

The famed actress tells The New York Times she's sick of being blasted for her silence in wake of the Weinstein scandal and amid the #MeToo movement. when she believes Melania and Ivanka Trump should be speaking up, too.

"I don't want to hear about the silence of me". "I want to hear about the silence of Melania TrumpMelania TrumpMelania Trump and Karen Pence visit Whataburger in Texas Melania Trump, Karen Pence to travel to Texas Melania rips report she didn't want to be first lady MORE. I want her to speak now". "She has so much that's valuable to say", she said. And so does Ivanka. "Nobody comes on to me [now]", Streep said, declining to get into specifics but adding that she "was really beaten up".

I can not be more remorseful about the people I hurt, and I plan to do right by all of them. "But there's a certain amount of forgiveness in that", Streep said about the slap.

As it happens, her criticism of Trump prompted a Los Angeles-based guerrilla artist to take revenge. And you see it in the movie.

"I think those things are being corrected in this moment". They will be fixed, because people won't accept it anymore. "So that's a good thing", she said.

Both Streep and Hoffman won Academy Awards for their performances in Kramer vs Kramer, which chronicles a couple's divorce and its effect on their young son.

She said, "I really had to think". "Stuff that I was feeling toward the wife that I was divorcing in real life".

Donald Trump has been accused by 19 women of misconduct, raging from groping to rape, according to NY magazine. It will be named after my mom, and I won't disappoint her. Considering she worked with Harvey Weinstein on numerous projects, scrutinizing eyes were on The Post actress when the NYT story broke about Weinstein's accusations. McGowan implied that Streep and other actresses continued to benefit from working with Weinstein while staying silent about his actions.

According to biographer Michael Schulman, who published a book about Streep's career in 2016, the actor also taunted her about the death of her boyfriend, actor John Cazale, to provoke a reaction for the camera. "Because it really underlined my own sense of cluelessness, and also how evil, deeply evil, and duplicitous, a person he (Weinstein) was, yet such a champion of really great work". "So much gossip. You don't know anything", she said. "People are so inscrutable on a certain level".

Streep added that she's optimistic about the future. "Some of my favorite people have been brought down by this, and he's not one of them".

Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.

"That was when we were making Kramer vs. Kramer".

"I found out about this on a Friday and went home deep into my own life".

"I do think if the world is going to go on, we have to find out a way to work together, and know that it's better for men if they respect us deeply as equals".
