    Meryl Streep is apparently naturally very funny lol. She seems baked or buzzed or something in this video. I never realised before how much she looks like my grandma.

    Ok but the title and the thumbnail for this video make it seem like they were actually arguing passionately (with each other) regarding their birth names. xDDD

    Meryl is a satanic high priestess....that means she kills children in their rituals, drinks their blood and eats flesh....she is gross! As are many in hollyweird.

      it is probably how the character got her name. producers and writers like they can sneak something in on us peasants.

    That was hilarious but sad! I also love when Nicole lets her Ozzie accent shine through (as a Kiwi, I don't say that often!). She seems so genuine on the show.

    Super proud of Meryl, who pronounced the HaYn word ALOHA correctly, since i am a huge fan of hers! Unfortunately Nicole Kidman pronounced her mido name wrong but regained herself for knowing the meaning of her name correctly! Im assuming its her accent that made Hokulank sound like she said Hokilani, which wud mean something totally different! Meryl says it with the intention of the Spirit of Aloha which means LOVE and Hello!

    If Hokulani was waiting to see Nicole in the back, that would be one hell of a big elephant! Out runs Hokulani, still thinking that she's a wee little thing and crunches Graham Norton into a pancake.
