Meryl Streep and Viola Davis
These are two of the best living actresses, so it’s not a huge surprise that they might know one another. The relationship between Viola Davis and Meryl Streep doesn’t stop there, though. In fact, it appears Meryl has acted as something of a mentor figure for Viola.
“You know, she just sent me an email, and I was like, ‘That’s perfect,’” Viola told Elle. “She was like, ‘Yes, Viola, now that you’ve just had your vow renewal…this is the best part of your life now. There’s not anything that you don’t know anymore in terms of what’s good and bad out there, so now you can just fly.’ She’s always imparting wisdom like that.”
