Sweaty cook Meryl Streep
LONDON: 'Mamma Mia' star Meryl Streep hates spending time in the kitchen because it makes her ''snappy and sweaty''.
Meryl Streep is a "terrible" cook.
The 'Mamma Mia' star hates spending time in the kitchen because it makes her "sweaty and snappy".
The 60-year-old actress told Britain's Glamour magazine: "I am a terrible cook. I can cook, but I fear that, as with video gaming or hard-core rap, I have no natural affinity.
"May I add that I am at perhaps my least glamorous when I am cooking, especially for other people? I am usually in a flop sweat, snapping at anyone in my line of sight."
Thankfully, Meryl has a simple solution to all her cooking woes - go out for dinner.
She added: "I'm in direct line with my mother on this one: She had a needlepoint pillow that read, I'm making my favorite thing for dinner: reservations.
"I also take a special pleasure in thrift, a talent I get from my father. About this talent my mother said, 'Harryâ€™s hobby is not spending money.' "
