Meryl Streep: ‘De Laurentiis called me a pig’

Why did you send me this pig? This woman is so ugly ….
Erm … a tad harsh!

Scenery chewer, maybe! But back in 1976, Meryl looked pretty good!

Typical Deano though! A pompous, ignorant Italian? Wow, there’s a rarity!

What a piece of crap his King Kong remake was too!

Movie mogul Dino De Laurentiis was so appalled when a young Meryl Streep was brought in to audition for him for King Kong – he called her a “pig”.

The moviemaker/producer, who eventually picked Jessica Lange for the role in the 1976 film, thought he was being clever by using Italian to convey his disgust – but Streep understood every word.

She tells America’s Entertainment Weekly magazine, “He said, ‘Why did you send me this pig? This woman is so ugly… so I looked at him and I said, ‘I’m very sorry that I disappoint you.’

“He was so used to treating girls like bimbos (and) never imagined that a blonde person could speak Italian.”

De Laurentiis has denied Streep’s story, insisting he did meet with the actress about another film project – but the encounter was nothing like the one the actress describes
