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.

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
