Did Meryl Streep throw a little shade at Benedict Cumberbatch on Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live”?

The August: Osage County star told Kimmel it was her idea to have the cast live together in a condo village while they filmed in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and said that Abigail Breslin, Julia Roberts, Margo Martindale, Chris Cooper, Ewan McGregor and Dermot Mulroney all took part in the living situation.

So, where was Cumberbatch? Streep shared, “Actually Benedict Cumberbatch was in a special hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright [Price Tower], which is in the center of Bartlesville.”

Kimmel joked, “Well, when your name’s Benedict Cumberbatch, you can’t stay in a condominium.” “You can’t cumberbatch down to where we are, no,” retorted Streep.
