Roberts' 'terrible' moment with Streep

Dec 14 2013, 2:54pm CST | by

Los Angeles, Dec 15 (IANS) Actress Julia Roberts says she felt "terrible" after she knocked over veteran actress Meryl Streep for a scene in "August: Osage County" because she left her "battered and bruised".

Los Angeles, Dec 15 — Actress Julia Roberts says she felt "terrible" after she knocked over veteran actress Meryl Streep for a scene in "August: Osage County" because she left her "battered and bruised".

Roberts, 46, plays Streep's on-screen daughter Barbara in the gritty comedy drama. She was forced to push the 64-year-old star - who plays Violet Weston - to the ground in one scene, and she was full of guilt for doing it, Roberts told Hello! Magazine in an interview.

"It was horrible, I felt terrible every time. I was so worried about hurting her and she was such an incredible trouper. We did the scene for like an entire day.

"We're both bruised up and battered and I was like, 'Look at this! Oh my God, I'm just beating up Meryl Streep!' But she never said a word and she is secretly icing her swelling wrist, like nothing happened. She's asking me, 'What's happening to you?' She's more concerned about others and she has a lot more endurance than I do. I love her," Roberts said.

The "Pretty Woman" star was "privileged" to work with the "Iron Lady" star, and was in awe of her.

"Well, she is the best there is. She is really phenomenal and to watch her up close doing her thing - you're in awe. I, like, everyone asked myself, 'Where does it come from? How does she think of this stuff?'

"To get to watch that up close and to see her be a real-life person, actually working really hard to be that great, it was a privilege."

18 Classic Movie Lines & Scenes That Were TOTALLY Unscripted!

Sep 15 2014 5:46pm CDT | Source: Perez Hilton

Sorry, Hollywood screenwriters. Sometimes the best lines in films AREN’T the ones you wrote down in the script! In fact, some of the most famous scenes in movies are completely improvised on the set! An actor will do or say something that just feels right and… Ta da! Cinema magic! Like Heath Ledger in his posthumous Oscar-winning role as The Joker in The Dark Knight. No one instructed Heath to applaud like he di ...

Here's the Exact Moment When Matthew McConaughey Realized He Lost

Aug 26 2014 9:15am CDT | Source: PopSugar

The competition for the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series was intensely fierce - so much so that even presenter Julia Roberts couldn't believe the list of great performances that were battling against one another. The lead battle appeared to be between True Detective's Matthew McConaughey, who would have made history if he won the same year he won an Oscar, and Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who was coming off of his show's flawless final season.

Sofia Vergara, Julia Roberts, Michelle Dockery & Amanda Peet Red Carpet Pics From 2014 Emmys!

Aug 26 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

The actresses are always much more, well, sedate, than the singers, so it’s no surprise that the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet didn’t have the fashion risks we saw at the 2014 MTV VMAs. Yet what was similar to the VMAs was that there was no clear red carpet trend, either. Everyone went with their own style. It’s fun to see the ‘Orange is the New Black’ ladies outside of their prison garb! We have TONS of pics ...

Ladies! What happened?! Julia Roberts and Kerry Washington usually KILL it on the red carpet! Their attires at the Emmys, however, say otherwise. The Pretty Woman actress took a more youthful route with her Elie Saab dress, but the rocky ensem didn't really pave the way to best dressed for this beauty!
