Meryl Streep has been nominated for 14 Academy Awards more than any other actor ever. She's shaped movie history with legendary roles in films like "Sophie's Choice", "The Devil wears Prada", and "Evil Angel". Colin Firth got his shirt wet and became an instant heartthrob is Mr.Darcy in TV's "Pride and Prejudice", since then he's stained up the screen in "The English Patient", "Bridget Jones's Diary" and "Love Actually".
Then Meryl and Colin have teamed up to play for the lovers in the all singing, all dancing celebration of ABBA's greatest hits in "Mamma Mia! (the movie)".
――Fresh off the plane in Melbourne in this way, Rove caught up with Meryl and sleepy Colin. Now, I will... wake up Colin!! Come on! Can I use promptly movie stars, still no doubt.
Colin : I'll show up sometimes how to get through them.
――Now, is that... is the whole reason you said "Yes" to the movie "Mamma Mia!" is simply for the spandex in the platforms.
Meryl : For Colin's.
Colin : It was. Normally we navigate through I really wanted to work with Meryl, it's an intimate, you know, come to myself, it's a bit of singing but I think guys know deep down that... (they want to go there.) you're motivated by, you know, blush a bit cloth, sequin boots, anything like that.
――Is it confronting when you say that outfit for the first time?
Colin : It's rather exciting to see it for the first time, what you don't want to see it --??-- and the fresh that I have to stuff into it and this point in my life.
Meryl : what you really want to see is getting into it.
Colin : No, I'd never considered that...
Meryl : it takes a village. (laughter)
Colin : you know, the three of us, when we get to encourage into our hands and walked out into the corridor, Stellan, Pierce and myself finally. First person I remember running into with Meryl who immediately said "All right, so who has been stuffing... " (laughter) and everybody immediately regretted it. (laughter)
――Not stuffing was...
Colin : Well, I use 'Make of it what you will'.
―― Also I would say Meryl, you've got probably most physical role in the film, yet at any point, you seemed to like to be hanging off the side of a goat shed. Are you singing and thinking, doesn't know have won 2 Oscars?
Meryl : No, I was thinking... if I die now, will anybody really realize how far this is that I felt, they just were not conveying how high up, I was without a net or any concern to, you know, the life for myself...
Colin : Pierce, Stellan and I had to jump off what felt like... (Oh... that was 40 foot cliff!) it felt like 140 feet... (three of them jump off there?) yeah...nobody looks specially at...
―― you could... could get those rocks on the way down. All was concern?
Meryl : Hit rocks or each other? crash for Amanda?
Colin : No exactly, so far, you're the first person to care. (That's what I don't [know]. )
―― For I get... I get about your doing the split, I thought you might hurt yourself. I don't know how many times you did the splits in.
Meryl : Oh, I don't think. I ever did more than once why would I... I mean I think it was just a thing that happened... I just was jumping on the bed I thought I won't forgot I could still do this... and I did.
―― Did you rehearse? how? Like to get to all the sun front?
Meryl : I did, but it was difficult because nobody wanted to hear "Dancing Queen" 70 times and around...
―― That's wrong, that was not...
Meryl : I know they're so intolerant, my family.
―― so what did you... What did you have to do?
Meryl : I was in closet... (in a closet?) I --?-- in the living room and then I was relegated to the hall then my room, and even with all the doors shut and they said "We can still hear you!!"
―― When you're shooting the musical scenes, the one thing that sticks in my mind, is when you're mid-way through saying you got from dialogue to singing, does it feel very strange to be braking into song?
Meryl : Well... No, that isn't strange, because part of the... part of the job of this particular piece was to make it feel as if... ♪what else can you do with it there's nothing more to say♪ You know, it's just we have to, you have to.
―― All right now, to finish off we have... we have a little segment called "20 bucks in 20 seconds", for I allow you the chance to win 20 bucks but what happens when we have 2 people is it gets planning to 10 dollars apiece, so...
Meryl : I'm leaving. I heard it was 20 bucks ! (laughter)
―― keep on standby. Alright, Meryl. How many times have you're been asked to do an Aussie accents since you've been here?
Meryl : Tolerances.
―― Colin, is this the first movie in vain with an exclamation mark in the title?
Colin : well, there was "Pride and Prejudice!!!". "Love Acutually!!". (laughter)
―― I stand corrected, again, Meryl. Have you ever met your "Sesame Street" character "Meryl Sheep" ? (No !) (laughter) Did you know one existed?
Meryl : Yes I did, yes I did. (stop the clock.) but it ruined my arms going to start, I had actually some "sheep" and I was going to just... to start a company called "Meryl Sheep" and then "Sesame Street" stole my name!
―― That's not right. See the copyright infringement necessarily all do it.
――Start o'clock. Colin, how much fun was it to bitch-slap Hugh Grant?
Colin : Oh.. god, how long we've got. (laughter) I mean... it wass terribly really good for him that day because we weren't really young anymore and he had a chiropractor on the set. (laughter) you know, we're so relax and thinking a lot of downtime...
Meryl : what was the term you use " bitch..." (Bitch slap!) That's really.. beautiful. (laughter)
―― It's not... it's not really fighting... bitch... it's the kind of that...
Colin :We model dad on "Crouching tiger Hidden dragon". (laughter)
―― your talk with 'crouch', a little bit more than it should have, was problem.

―― This is the question I always end on, who would you turn gay for?
Colin : In this one, I really did turn go for my little pet loss at the end, and... I would say I'd probably turn gay for Stellan Skarsgård, Pierce Brosnan, Dominic Cooper. (Oh, Dominic... yes.) he's got the pack thing [= abs, six packs] here. Pierce and Stellan had to refuse at one point to allow to him onto a boat . (laughter) one pack maximum rule, you know... (laughter)
―― "No six-packs. Kegs only." (laughter) Oh, thank you very much well for that you can take the two tens, and so thank you very much, it was wonderful, thank you.
