In case you didn’t know, Meryl Streep is an acting god.

The 68-year-old has 3 Academy Awards under her belt and is the most-nominated actor of all time.

So it’s no surprise that Emily Blunt had the reaction she did when Miss Meryl praised her.

The A Quiet Place actress worked with Meryl on The Devil Wears Prada in 2006. The 68-year-old was notorious for staying in her trailer and not engaging with fellow cast members on set to maintain the aloof nature of vicious Runway editor-in-chief, Miranda Priestly.

But that all changed once filming had wrapped.

“There was this crazy moment when I wrapped and I remember seeing her across the parking lot,” Emily told Sunday Today. “She burst out of her trailer — the wig was off. She was just Meryl. She was in a puffy jacket. She was like, ‘You were so great’ and I was just like [crying] and I just started to weep. It was sad. “I just was crying the whole way home. I didn’t realize how much her sort of stamp of approval would mean.”

It’s nice to know that Meryl made Emily cry for good reasons too!
