It seems like only a matter of time before Oscar winner Meryl Streep gets her own biopic, so who should play her? When the star of Florence Foster Jenkins was asked this hypothetical during a recent press junket, one name instantly came to mind: Amy Schumer

During an interview with The Huffington Post, Streep answered a series of rapid-fire questions about hidden talents, such as who of her A-list friends would be best at — or best at faking — hula-hooping. (That answer is George Clooney. “Clearly, he’s the candidate,” she said.)

The biopic question arose at the end, to which she replied, “Amy Schumer, of course.” Watch video of the junket game in the video below. 


Schumer got wind of this answer and was understandably floored, taking to Twitter to voice her “holy s—” response. 

Holy shit
