The Big Little Lies actress opened up about the subject on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
With three Oscars, three Emmys and eight Golden Globes, Meryl Streep seems unstoppable. But on Monday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Reese Witherspoon revealed the one thing her Big Little Lies co-star can’t do.
“I actually discovered the one thing Meryl Streep is bad at: bowling,” the actress told Ellen DeGeneres. “I honestly think at some point she threw it the opposite way and people scattered.”
As fans will recall, Witherspoon and Streep went bowling with teammates Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley in June. Even though the Devil Wears Prada star wasn’t exactly a pro, Witherspoon suggested she still had a great time.
“It was really fun,” Witherspoon said. “It’s such a good sport. She’s a doll.”
Bowling isn’t the only activity Streep needs a bit of practice in. During a 2016 press conference for Florence Foster Jenkins, the actress revealed that she wasn’t very good at golf.
“I can’t do a lot of things, like golf. I don’t like golf. I mean I really don’t like because I tend to like things that I can do right away. If I can’t do it right away, I don’t like it,” she said, according to Vanity Fair. “I like skiing a lot because you can kind of get on skis, and if you’re coordinated and completely without being reckless, you can lean forward and go. But golf, no! No one can do that. .”
