”Watch any movie he directs Meryl Streep in [like 1983’s Silkwood or 2003’s Angels in America] and I dare you to tell me you have seen something better,” says the Studio 60 actress, 32. ”If I could carry a glass of water in the background of a Mike Nichols movie, I would do it in a heartbeat. I would even answer his phone or file — as long as he gave me some direction while I was doing it.”
