Meryl Streep stepped into the Golden Globes press room following her big win for The Iron Lady during this evening's show. On stage she couldn't give the speech she had planned since she forgot her glasses at the table, and while she almost gave it to the press room instead, she refrained. Instead, Meryl talked about women who inspire her, taking on the role of Margaret Thatcher, and what she's working on now. Check it out:
On what she would ask Margaret Thatcher: I would be interested in what she thinks about Europe right now and the debt crisis and whether her views about any of that have evolved. It's interesting how it's coming to the same path. It interests me.
On taking on the role: Coming into this I had a very reductive view of Margret Thatcher. I did what we all do to political leaders we don’t agree with, turning them into something more than human and less than human at the same time. It was interesting to me to look at the human being behind all that, to look at the life that was so groundbreaking, in the winter of that life. To find a compassionate view of someone with whom I disagree.
On what inspires her: I’ve never really gotten to the bottom of me and all the contradictions and conundrum that I find in my own personality and I feel like I find myself, or parts of myself, and I find some understanding of being alive from the characters I play. I’ve probably only gravitated towards characters I do feel something of me in.
What is your passion project right now: I’m very interested in the stories of women, the untold stories, and I’m trying very hard to get congress to let us purchase land on the National Mall for the first women's museum. There are so many stories, I could go on for hours.

Michelle continued the lovefest for the people in her life, talking about being inspired by the faces of her friends and of course by daughter Matilda. Check out the quotes:
On who she shares the honors with: Oh my goodness, so many people, how much time do we have? You realize when you find yourself in this very lucky position, you're not there alone. It's endless. There’s too many. My family, the people I worked with, the driver who listened to two months of vocal warm up on the way to work every day.
On the hardest part of the role: Sometimes I think the hardest part was just saying yes. Taking on that journey, that responsibility.
On Marilyn not getting nominated for The Prince and the Showgirl: I have tremendous fondness for that performance, of course I've watched it so many times, and while I think that film meanders and falls apart a bit but at the end, she’s luminous. She's in a moment. Everything feels like it's happening for the first time. I think her comic touch was her greatest touch. She was honored by this organization numerous times.
On who she will be calling first: I’m going to call my mother.
On why Marilyn remains so iconic: People get so much pleasure from watching her.
On Matilda making her a better actress: Well, really I just hope to be the best mom that I can be. There is no part of my life that goes untouched by my daughter.
On her beauty icons: I suppose my friends, honestly. Their real, funny faces. Watching them move, change, get older, laugh, cry, change their haircut. They are my inspiration.
On taking on a real-life icon: I felt responsibility. I felt tremendous responsibility. Every other character has been in my head, only I know her, with Marilyn, it’s a known quantity. That was new and terrifying.
On Ricky's hosting job: I’ve just been laughing. I haven’t heard him make fun of me yet. Maybe my laughter will turn to tears, but right now I am very much enjoying it.
