On Monday night, “Extra’s” Charissa Thompson caught up with Ben Affleck at the premiere of his latest movie, “Live by Night.” On the red carpet, the actor reacted to Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech, which has dominated headlines.
After President-elect Trump called her “overrated,” Affleck defended the Golden Globes nominee, saying, “I think if there's one thing that you can say about Meryl Streep is that she is not overrated. That's like saying Gandhi is not a good statesman, Martin Luther King not a good speechmaker.”
He added, “If you look up 'great actress' in the encyclopedia, you'll will see Meryl Streep's face there, and she is better than any of them, Brando — she’s the best actress or actor that ever lived, so to say she’s overrated shows you don’t understand acting.”
