Tom Hanks was afraid of Meryl Streep
The two worked together recently in Steven Spielberg's The Post
Tom Hanks says he was "afraid" of his The Post co-star Meryl Streep. The Steven Spielberg-directorial marked the first time the two Oscar winners have worked together.
"I'm in awe of Meryl Streep. I was afraid of Meryl Streep. I did not know what to say to Meryl Streep," Hanks said.
The film follows Katharine Graham (Streep) who, as the first female publisher of The Washington Post, relies on the help of editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) to catch up with The New York Times to break the story of the classified Pentagon Papers, which exposed the US government's lies about the Vietnam War.
