Doesn’t Meryl Streep have enough B.S. to deal with lately? Not only is she giving profound, political speeches that provoked a series of hate-tweets from the President, but now, she’s being accused of requesting payment for wearing a Karl Lagerfeld gown to the upcoming Academy Awards.
Earlier this week WWD reported the star, who is nominated for Best Actress for her role in “Florence Foster Jenkins, had turned down a custom couture grey silk embroidered Chanel dress because the design house refused to pay her to wear it on the red carpet.
According to Lagerfeld, the design team was contacted on Streep’s behalf with this message: “‘Don’t continue the dress. We found somebody who will pay us.”
However, today the best actress nominee’s team fired back saying that simply isn’t true. A publicist told Refinery29, “Ms. Streep would NEVER wear anything in exchange for payment.”
Now can everyone just leave Meryl alone so she can tend to the the important business of carefully crafting another speech that will push Trump over the edge?
