Tiffany Haddish always leaves an impression on the red carpet, and that was certainly true at the Oscars this year. Haddish spotted Meryl Streep walking the red carpet and literally stopped what she was doing, jumped the velvet rope, and introduced herself to the acting legend. Streep is attending the Oscars as a best actress nominee for “The Post.” Haddish is presenting this year.

The videos of Haddish and Streep meeting on the red carpet didn’t pick up any of the audio, but the “Girls Trip” breakout later told Michael Strahan during an ABC interview that her goal for the night was to track down Streep to pitch her a role in “Girls Trip 2.” The thought of Streep in a “Girls Trip” sequel is enticing, although Universal has yet to confirm a next installment is happening.

Streep recently joined the cast of “Big Little Lies” Season 2. Watch the moment between the duo below.
