Meryl Streep is Vogue's December cover star, and to celebrate, the Oscar winner stopped by the magazine's World Trade Center offices for an interview with editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, whom she famously portrayed in The Devil Wears Prada. 

While the pair didn't discuss the accuracy of Miranda Priestly to Wintour's true personality, they did talk about Streep's new role in the Steven Spielberg film The Post, about the late Washington Post editor Kay Graham, who happened to be a personal friend and mentor of Wintour's. 

Naturally, the subject of Weinstein and the changing climate of Hollywood and harrassment in the workplace came up, and responding to Wintour's question about whether the currently scandal will help or hurt the feminist agenda, Streep said:

"Oh, I think this moment is absolutely thrilling. This is a door that will not be closed. We've got our foot in there now. And it'll be very difficult for people to conduct their lives the way they have in the past. 'Oh, that's just locker room talk. Oh, that's just the way men are.' No, it's not. We're civilized people and we learn from our mistakes."

The Post is out December 22. Read Streep's cover story here, and watch her interview with Wintour, below:
