Meryl Streep Thinks Her DNC Scream 'Sounds Like Someone Being Murdered'

She is Meryl. Hear her roar.
Still not over this look. 
Still not over this look. 

Meryl Streep’s speech at the Democratic National Convention in July was memorable for a multitude of reasons: the unbridled enthusiasm over Hillary Clinton’s nomination, her tribute to female trailblazers, the groundbreaking American flag-inspired dress and, of course, her scream. 

Not since Howard Dean shrieked his way out of the 2004 election has there been an outburst so simultaneously earnest and perplexing. 

C’mon, you know the one: 

On Tuesday, Streep addressed the scream heard ‘round the world while promoting her new movie “Florence Foster Jenkins” during a segment on “Good Morning America.”

“[It] sounds like someone being murdered,” she jokingly told George Stephanopoulos. “Now I know what I sounded like as a cheerleader at Bernards High School.”

“I didn’t realize that I had done that actually,” she added. “I just was swept up with the moment. It was a pretty amazing moment in history.”

And so were we.
