On Tuesday night, Jake Gyllenhaal took the stage at the Berinale Palast for one of the main events of the Berlin International Film Festival: The feting of Meryl Streep.
“When I was asked to present the Honorary Golden Bear to Meryl Streep — one of the greatest actresses to ever grace the silver screen,” Jake Gyllenhaal said onstage at the event — which took place before the German premiere of “The Iron Lady” — “I was surprised and flattered.”
Gyllenhaal joked that after days of pondering he ultimately decided to do it because it was an opportunity to resolve “some personal issues” between himself and Streep. Gyllenhaal explained that before he knew of Meryl Streep the actress, he knew her simply as “Hank’s mom.” It seems Jake and Streep’s eldest son Henry “Hank” Gummer were teenage pals.
“To be frank,” he said. “Meryl Streep was not too fond of the 13-year-old version of me. Back in the early 1990s, Hank and I were going around in our baggy pants and listening to the rap artists of the day — like Warren G and Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg — pretending to be gangsters. In truth, and it may come as a great surprise to many of you, we were actually just wussies. But for some reason Meryl didn’t take a liking to me and didn’t really trust me with her son. As we all know from her work, Meryl Streep has a real capacity to be terrifying. We’ve all seen ‘The Devil Wears Prada.’”
Streep joined Gyllenhaal on stage — after a seemingly endless standing ovation from the crowd — and called a truce. Meryl’s response is above.
