Meryl Streep - Meryl Streep Swears In Globes Acceptance Speech

Meryl Streep swore while accepting her Best Actress prize at the Golden Globe awards last night (15.01.12).

The Oscar-winning actress picked up the Best Actress in a Drama prize for her role as Margaret Thatcher in 'The Iron Lady' at the glittering show at the Beverly Hills Hotel, but upon arriving on the stage she realised she had forgotten her glasses and could not read the speech she had prepared.

She said: "Oh s**t. My glasses. I'm going to have to remember my speech. Sometimes it seems that serious, challenging, weird movies are like exotic birds, rare, near extinct birds, and every year the flock flies in and someone picks them up and gives them money and we get to see them. So I just want to thank, my agent and god, Harvey Weinstein. The punisher. Old Testament, I guess."

Meryl also thanked the "people of England" for allowing her to take on the role of the British Prime Minister and insisted she was very "proud" of the biopic.

She added: "I gotta thank everybody in England who let me come over and trample all over their history, especially Phyllida Lloyd, Abi Morgan who wrote it. All the cast and crew in England. We made it for 25 cents in five minutes, and I'm so proud of the film."

Meryl is widely predicted to be nominated for an Oscar for the film - also starring Jim Broadbent as Margaret's husband Dennis Thatcher - which has so far grossed $17 million at the global box office.
