James Corden is revealing his deep, dark feelings about his dear friend, Meryl Streep!
The 38-year-old comedian took the stage at the 19th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday, introducing the Florence Foster Jenkins star as the recipient of the Distinguished Collaborator Award. Naturally, his speech was full of jokes and harsh digs.
"I'm here tonight to present an award to Meryl Streep," Corden said. "I remember the first time I met Meryl, we were in London, and Meryl was having a bite to eat with Christine Baranski and I walked over to the table and I said, 'Hello, I'm James,' and she looked me right in the eye -- and I'll never ever forget it -- she said to me, 'I'd like the lemon-encrusted salmon with a Diet Coke.' I explained to Meryl that I was an actor and I was actually about to play the baker in Into the Woods alongside her and she said, 'That's great, I'd like the lemon-encrusted salmon with a Diet Coke.'"
"What I'm trying to say is, and it's time that someone said it, she's a complete b***h," he joked. "She is the worst."
"Now listen, I disagree with almost everything that Donald Trump has ever said, but when he tweeted that -- yeah, I'm joking of course!" he exclaimed. "It's great to see someone like Meryl finally be recognized with an award. That's what I think. I mean, what is she even going to do with this? This is going to be a door stop for her the Golden Globes room."
"Thank you everybody," she gushed. "I have to dedicate this, because it means a lot to me, it does, and not because I wanted to be a costume designer, which I don't, but because my mother really wanted to be a costume designer. Halloween was maybe like a religious -- no, it was like the run-up to Fashion Week in our house."
After Streep explained some of the intricate, "inventive" costumes her mother designed for her over the years -- Statue of Liberty, a Harem dancer, etc. -- she concluded her speech by thanking all the designers who helped create her most iconic film looks.
"Thank you everybody, I am so grateful," she exclaimed. "So grateful, and I do honor your artistry. I wish I could do it!"
