For many movie fans, and just about everyone in the film industry, Streep is the unquestioned acting GOAT. However, she only recently learned the phrase was actually a compliment.

While promoting the upcoming film "Don’t Look Up," Streep revealed she was confused when Jonah Hill and Jennifer Lawrence referred to her as the “goat.” Luckily, Lawrence let her know it was actually an honor to be called GOAT, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"We offhandedly call Meryl 'The GOAT,'" Lawrence said during an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

"Meryl kind of said, 'That's right, just tell the old goat where to go,'" Lawrence added. “I was like, 'Meryl... you know GOAT means greatest of all time, right? We haven't just been calling you goat this whole time!"

Luckily, Streep now knows it means “greatest of all time” and no longer thinks Hill and Lawrence were not being disrespectful.
