A Strong Bond
It turns out, when Meryl joined the crew, the stars bonded over carbs. We can get behind this! “We may had a glass of wine or two at dinner,” Reese divulged to Vanity Fair. “[Meryl would] come out to dinner with us. We had pizza and pasta dinners, and she’d tell us all her stories about her career and her life. It was an incredible experience just listening to her, and we had so much fun. When the girls get together, we are just laughing all the time.”
