Lawrence's 'I Beat Meryl' line gets mixed reaction
Don't mess with Meryl.
That's what a lot of Twitter users were saying after Jennifer Lawrence accepted the Golden Globe for lead actress in a motion picture comedy or musical, looked it over and quipped, "What does it say? I beat Meryl!"
Meryl Streep was nominated in the same category for "Hope Springs."
"Who says that?" tweeted "Dancing With the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
Celeb blogger Perez Hilton cautioned, "Oh, no you didn't!!!! Meryl Streep is gonna haunt your dreams!!!!!!!!!!"
Lawrence was actually quoting a line from the movie "First Wives Club" starring Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton.
Fans who got the joke were quick to point out she was not dissing Streep, who has more Golden Globe nominations than anyone.
Soon (hash)FirstWivesClub was trending too.
