Meryl Streep and Mariah Carey have hilariously opened up about an awkward moment they shared at the Golden Globes in Los Angeles last Sunday.
The three-time Academy Award winner told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that she left her seat – next to director Steven Spielberg no less – and came back to find it occupied by none other than Mariah.
“Bitch stole my seat!” Meryl quipped.
“I came over and there she was, you know, next to Spielberg, sucking up.
“She said, ‘Oh my God they made me sit down because we were moving!’ They make you – they say, ‘5,4,3,2,1’ wherever you are and everybody has to drop to their [seat].
“But I said, ‘No, no, no, stay there! I’ll sit in your lap!’ Because you know, it’d be comfy.”
Mariah also set the record straight about the incident on her Twitter account.
“Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break.. took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg,” she tweeted.
“Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat?
“(Me) Dear Meryl, please forgive me!!! (MERYL STREEP) You can take my seat any time!”
