Meryl Streep is not just a villain on the big screen!
Sure, the three-time Oscar winner has played some pretty tough cookies, but when it comes to her personal life, turns out things aren't too different.
We saw a glimpse of her Mommy Dearest side as Miranda Priestly in Devil Wears Prada and Mary Fisher in She-Devil, so, actually, we aren't too surprised that it stems from somewhere in her real life!
In fact, according to Meryl herself, she claims that her adult children, Mamie Gummer, 31, Grace Gummer, 28, Louisa Jacobson Gummer, 23, and 34-year-old Henry Wolfe Gummer, have been treating her like a villain for years!
It's actually not as serious as you think, it's just that her hubby Don Gummer has always played good cop, while she, well, is basically Mrs. Bad Cop.
In a recent interview, Meryl revealed:
"[B]ut like always, I’m cast as the villain, I’m the bad cop who punishes whereas the father says yes and consoles."
Oh, honey, you aren't the only mother who feels like she's constantly the one doing the punishing at home!
That just means you're keeping those kids on their toes! And they've obviously grown up to be wonderful adult human beings - just like their momma!
Although, when we DO go see her as The Witch in Into the Woods, which hits theaters later this year, we now know where she got all that inspiration from!
