Meryl Streep Says That She And Cher Once Had To Team Up To Fight An Attacker

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

 Meryl Streep spoke recently at the Committee to Protect Journalists annual awards. The actress opened up about her past facing, "real, physical violence."

 Streep told of two encounters with danger that have changed her.

"I do know something about real terror. The two times in my life when I was threatened and dealt with real physical violence, I learned something about life that I wouldn’t have known otherwise and I was lucky because my instincts served me well."

 She talked about the first time saying, 

"[I] played dead and waited until the blows stopped — watching like people say you do from about 50 feet above from where I was beaten."
