Meryl Streep seems like she is making the most of the current coronavirus lockdown.
The legendary Hollywood actress has left fans in hysterics after her afternoon Zoom video call appeared on American TV show Sunday Night Live.
In a tribute show put together to honour Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim, the Devil Wears Prada star appeared on a video call along with fellow Hollywood icons Christine Baranski and Audra McDonald.
The hilarious video call saw the three high-profile actresses sing Stephen Sondheim tune The Ladies Who Lunch while treating themselves to a tipple or two.
And fans were obsessed with the video that saw the It’s Complicated star mixing martinis and drinking whiskey straight from the bottle while lounging in her chic fluffy white dressing gown.
The Good Wife actress Christine Baranski kicked off the performance by singing the first verse, while also dressed her own matching dressing gown and sipping a glass of red wine.
The video then moved onto Meryl who was shaking her cocktail ingredients along with a handful of ice in a glam cocktail mixer before she poured out her drink into a classic martini glass with a lemon peel garnish.
She was followed by Private Practice star Audra McDonald who in her own fluffy dressing gown was drinking whiskey straight from the bottle.
And the internet was loving the amazing video, with fans not able to get over Meryl’s fabulous addition.
'The perfection aka Christine Baranski , Meryl Streep and Audra McDonald ladies and gentlemen #Sondheim90Concert,' wrote one fan,
‘Meryl Streep singing, making cocktails and drinking alcohol in quarantine is what we didn’t know we need,’ added another, while one commented, ‘Meryl Streep is a visual representation of me in quarantine’.
‘Meryl Streep, Audra MacDonald and Christine Barnaski singing Sondheim over Zoom in their bathrobes is, and I can not stress this enough, the ultimate mood. #sondheim90concert,’ another fan wrote.
Another commented, ‘We're living in a world where a single zoom call between Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski and Audra McDonald is easily the top contender for Best Revival of a Musical at the 2020 Tony Awards’.
While others added, ‘audra mcdonald, christine baranski and meryl streep.....truly the greatest crossover event in history’, ‘Meryl Streep is our quarantine spirit animal’ and ‘Protect Meryl Streep at all costs’.
