Lessons from a Legend
In Lady Mendel’s Tea Salon at the Inn at Irving Place in New York, Uma and Meryl meet for tea and talk about what it means to be a legend.
Uma: What does it feel like to be a legend? Does that feel real to you?
Meryl: No, it doesn't. It doesn't mean anything. I can't feel that. It doesn't land.
Uma: Does accomplishment give you comfort? Are you proud of what you've achieved?
Meryl: Secretly, when I go back ... if there's something on TV, an old movie...I hadn't seen Plenty in about 20 years, and I just saw a bit of it. I thought it was really good this time. And I don't think I could see that 20 years ago. That was very satisfying.
