We all know Meryl Streep can act. Just look at the 64-year-old’s 18 Oscar nominations if you need proof!

But you know why else we love Ms. Streep? Because she’s cool! And fun! And quirky!

Take, for example, the scene at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday night. Streep attended the New York Knicks vs. Los Angeles Lakers game with hubby Don Gummer, but they weren’t the pair everyone was talking about!

Seated to Streep’s left was rapper 50 Cent. He took plenty of selfies with the actress, who was overcome with a fit of giggles sitting next to the 38-year-old charmer!

The pair were even caught holding hands at one point! But don’t worry, it was all in good fun. Streep has been happily married to Gummer for 36-years.

50 Cent later uploaded the photos to his Instagram account, along with a surprise photo taken off the court! It features the rapper, Streep, and Lakers’ player Kobe Bryant striking what 50 Cent calls a “gangsta” pose.


“Things got a little gangsta. Lol TURN UP, Turn Down for what!” the star captioned the photo.

“Man I got a good life man lol,” the musician wrote of his all-star encounter!
