Meryl Streep reacts to Mariah Carey ‘stealing her seat’ at 2018 Golden Globes


Meryl Streep has jokingly called Mariah Carey a “bitch” for taking her seat at the 2018 Golden Globes held on Sunday (7 January) night.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night, the Oscar-winning actress added the pop diva was “sucking up” to Steven Spielberg after taking her seat during a commercial break.

“Bitch stole my seat. I came over and there she was next to Spielberg…sucking up,” the 68-year-old actress said, laughing.

Streep explained how the songstress apologised to her for sitting in her chair after being told by organisers to sit in her place during a commercial break. Streep added she was offered her seat back.

“She said ‘oh my god they made me sit down’, Wherever you are after 5,4,3,2,1 everyone has to drop and sit down [for filming]. It’s kinda like musical chairs,” Streep was quoted as saying by Daily Star.

However, Streep was not upset with Carey for taking her seat during the commercial break.
