Meryl Streep is surprised she is a gay icon, despite camp and flamboyant performances in films such as Mamma Mia! And The Devil Wears Prada.
The ShowbizSpy website reported the star, who is causing a stir with her latest role as Margaret Thatcher in biopic The Iron Lady, is delighted she has so many gay fans.
‘I just recently found out I’m a gay icon from a show where they do little arias from all my movies,’ the Oscar winning star said.
‘It’s flattering of course. Whether or not Margaret is also a gay icon I don’t know. That’s a difficult one for me.’
