Meryl: Gwyneth saved Thanksgiving!

Meryl Streep has gushed about Gwyneth Paltrow’s amazing oven that salvaged her Thanksgiving disaster.

Meryl Streep has gushed about Gwyneth Paltrow’s amazing oven that salvaged her “Thanksgiving disaster”.

Meryl Streep thinks Gwyneth Paltrow has “the best oven”.

The 65-year-old Oscar winner suffered a Thanksgiving fail this year when her oven refused to work effectively enough to cook her turkey. So she went to her neighbour Gwyneth’s apartment to borrow hers.

“In my building is Gwyneth Paltrow,” Meryl told the hosts on American chat show Live! With Kelly and Michael. “She has the best oven I have ever seen in my life.”

The August: Osage County actress established early on that her own oven was not going to suffice. She was less than impressed with the appliance, particularly on that special day of the year.

“My oven didn’t work. I hate my oven, I hate it, and you never hate your oven more than on Thanksgiving day when it won’t cook the turkey,” Meryl lamented.

But as luck would have it, her friend saved the day. She got in touch with Gwyneth, 42, thanks to the wonders of technology, and a doorman let her inside.

“So I emailed her, and they weren’t there, so I went over,” Meryl explained. “And I did all the sides in her oven, and my brother was in charge of the turkey that would not cook.”

It’s not the first time the pair of leading ladies have demonstrated sisterhood towards one another. Gwyneth made it clear in September that Meryl is in fact her beauty icon.

"She's just herself, you can feel how integrated she is in her body. And she's got beautiful colouring - she's just so naturally beautiful," the Iron Man 3 actress told British newspaper The Telegraph.
