Oscar winning actor and staunch liberal, Robert DeNiro, published a short letter commending Meryl Streep on her speech given during the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday evening. DeNiro, who is best known for his role in the film ‘Raging Bull’, applauded Streep’s hard-hitting negative sentiments toward President-elect Donald Trump.
What you said was great. It needed to be said, and you said it beautifully. I have so much respect for you that you did it while the world was celebrating your achievements. I share your sentiments about punks and bullies. Enough is enough. You, with your elegance and intelligence, have a powerful voice – one that inspires others to speak up as they should so their voices will be heard too. It is so important that we ALL speak up.
We love you.
Meryl Streep, 67, gave her anti-Trump speech while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
Though Trump was never explicitly mentioned by name in Streep’s speech, the focus was unambiguous. Celebrities including Viola Davis and George Clooney reached out to Meryl Streep in congratulatory remarks and support for her speech.
DeNiro and Streep have costarred in four films together amid the duration of their careers. The famous friend duo was last seen together on Friday at President Obama’s farewell party.
