Los Angeles [California], Feb. 12 (ANI): Oscar-winner Meryl Streep has responded to U.S. President Donald Trump's "over-rated" jibe directed at her, saying she is indeed the most overrated and over-decorated star of her generation. "I am the most overrated and most over-decorated and currently - currently - I am the most over-berated actor.of my generation," Streep said in her speech at the Human Rights Campaign's gala in New York. "We owe it to the people who have died for our rights, and who have died before they even got their own," she added in an emotional tone. The 56-year-old star also talked about arts, humanities and a transgender teacher that she had in middle school. The 'Iron Lady' star, who recently received the gay rights organisation's Ally for Equality Award, said: "As Americans, men, women, people, gay, straight, LGBTG. All of us have the human right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." This is not for the first time that Streep has been critical of Trump. During her speech last month at the Golden Globes speech, she got emotional in a speech hitting Trump for being a bully. Streep, while accepting a lifetime achievement award, delivered a blistering condemnation of Trump's imitation of a reporter with disabilities. Without naming the President, Streep said the moment reminded her that "disrespect invites disrespect." President Trump later lashed out at Streep on Twitter, calling her an overrated actress. (ANI)
