more from terry gross’s 2012 interview with meryl streep, discussing a failed audition she had for 1970’s king kong remake:

GROSS: Did you worried that you were basically – I mean you haven’t been in any movies yet. So did you worry that word would spread about you that you were – that she spoke back to directors?

STREEP: A pain in the ass?

GROSS: Yeah. That you are a real pain and that you were, yeah, that you were problems, so like…avoid her?

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

STREEP: I am a pain in the ass.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

STREEP: How can I hide it?

excerpt from meryl streep’s 2012 interview with terry gross, discussing streep’s boyfriend john cazale, who “appeared in only five films, all of which (The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, The Conversation, Dog Day Afternoon, The Deer Hunter) were nominated for a Best Picture Oscar,” before he died of cancer in 1978:

STREEP: Yes. We were not engaged but we were a couple. We lived together and, yes, for like three years. Mm-hmm.

GROSS: So he probably died not knowing how famous his roles were going to be, how famous those movies were going to be.

STREEP: … The Godfather movies were unbelievably popular and, you know, they were just, popular isn’t the word. They were…

GROSS: Well, they’ve entered into iconic.

STREEP: Yeah. Absolutely. And they did early. I mean early, early on. They had that importance, certainly, in New York where we lived. And, you know, we would walk along the street, and people would roll down the window and they’d go, “Hey, Fredo!” you know. And we could NEVER pay for a dinner, if we went to Little Italy. Never.

Which was great.

We went all the time.
