Jennifer Lawrence Explains “I Beat Meryl Streep” Golden Globes Joke (VIDEO)


By Shari Weiss



Jennifer Lawrence’s “I beat Meryl Streep!” exclamation at Sunday’s Golden Globes raised eyebrows among viewers who didn’t understand it was a direct movie reference.

On Tuesday’s “Late Show with David Letterman,” the Best Actress winner explained, “It was a quote from First Wives’ Club.”


Lawrence went on to discuss how surprised she was that many observers didn’t get the joke, including Lindsay Lohan, who tweeted that night, “And no1 should ever mess with a legend, such as Meryl Streep.”
