Streep doesn't agree with 'toxic masculinity'
Los Angeles: Actor Meryl Streep doesn't agree with the term "toxic masculinity", and says that the use of the expression can be harmful for boys.
She made the comment while taking part in a question and answer session for the upcoming second season of 'Big Little Lies', in which Streep is a new cast member, reports independent.co.uk.
During the talk, which was hosted by Vanity Fair, Streep addressed the topic of toxic masculinity while discussing an anecdote about a male fan who had told actor Nicole Kidman that he enjoyed the show.
The three-time Oscar winner explained that she dislikes the term because, in her opinion, all individuals can exhibit toxic behaviour, regardless of gender. "Sometimes I think we're hurt. We hurt our boys by calling something toxic masculinity. I do," Streep said.
