Los Angeles: Veteran actress Meryl Streep says she was not expecting to find singer Mariah Carey on her seat at the Golden Globe Awards ceremony.
On “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, Streep shared her reaction to Carey accidentally stealing her seat during a commercial break.
“B***h stole my seat,” Streep jokingly told host Jimmy Kimmel.
“Yeah, I came over and there she was next to (Steven) Spielberg sucking up. She said, ‘Oh my god they made me sit down!’ Because you know we’re moving they make you… Everyone has to drop to their seat,” the celebrated actress recalled, likening the moment to musical chairs.
“I was left out. I said, ‘No, no. Stay there. I’ll sit on your lap.’ Because you know it looked comfy,” Streep said.
During the 75th annual awards show, Carey, who was nominated for her song in the animated film “The Star”, tweeted from the audience about her encounter with Streep, who was nominated for best actress.
“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,” Carey wrote.
“Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat….”
According to Carey, Streep told her: “You can take my seat any time!”
