Jane Lynch on how Meryl Streep mastered the art of award show after parties.
I love how even when Meryl is wearing huge heels, Don is still taller than her and they just fit together perfectly and ugh Strummer.

"We really got to know each other through our letters..and twenty minutes later, we got married!.. He’s like me..very private..he never says anything he doesn’t mean. He’s warm, strong, gentle, funny, kind, understanding, very creative.." —Meryl Streep, 1980 (…)
Mr. & Mrs. Gummer | After 35 years (and still counting), 86th Annual Academy Awards
"Before the awards, the producers revealed, DeGeneres had told a couple of stars like Streep that she’d be coming into the audience to play with them. “But nobody really knew anything,” Zadan said. “A couple of people knew Ellen was going to come out and talk to them. Meryl said, ‘Great, let’s have fun.’ But it was all improvised to a degree. When Ellen was planning the selfie, she thought it would be Meryl, and maybe Julia [Roberts]. I don’t think she anticipated that all those stars would get out of their seats and surround them.” In fact, in rehearsal, with DeGeneres’ writers sitting in for the stars, the bit was blocked out on the assumption that Streep would take the shot, although ultimately Bradley Cooper volunteered.
DeGeneres also masterminded the pizza boy gag. “When Ellen said she wanted to do it, we said we’d hire an actor, but she said, ‘No, no, no. You’re not hiring an actor. I want a real pizza delivery person,’ ” Zadan revealed. “We said that the FBI would have to do a background check. She said, ‘I don’t care. I want it to be real. I want this guy to walk in and not know he’s going to the Academy Awards.’ “"
Meanwhile in the audience, Don Gummer tried to remember why it was that he had to attend the Oscars for the 18th time. :D
