Meryl Streep is wishing the Emmys committee would let her rest in peace instead of badgering her to help with a tribute to Carrie Fisher.
“Meryl was asked to make a speech, but she doesn’t want to go through the hassle of finding a dress, writing something and doing interviews for hours,” revealed a friend close to the screen queen, who played Carrie’s alter ego in Postcards From the Edge. “In fact, Meryl’s annoyed they asked her — she feels like she’s done enough.”
The actress honored the Star Wars icon at Carrie and Debbie Reynolds’ joint funeral in January when she sang “Happy Days Are Here Again” with Carrie’s daughter, Billie Lourd.
“Meryl had so much respect for Carrie,” says a source, “but privately she thinks all the memorials for her are going a little far.”
