Meryl Streep refused to do the Carrie Fisher tribute at the Emmys
Meryl Streep is wishing the Emmys committee would let her rest in peace instead of badgering her to help with a tribute to Carrie Fisher.
“Meryl was asked to make a speech, but she doesn’t want to go through the hassle of finding a dress, writing something and doing interviews for hours,” revealed a friend close to Streep. “In fact, Meryl’s annoyed they asked her – she feels like she’s done enough.”
Streep honored Carrie Fisher at the joint funeral when she sang “Happy Days Are Here Again” with Billie Lourd, Carrie’s daughter. “Meryl had so much respect for Carrie, but privately she thinks all the memorials for her are going a little far.”
