Meryl Streep, 73, is regarded as a Hollywood legend, and there has hardly ever been a time when the actor has failed to awe his audience with his abilities on screen. But Merrill gave his fans a second surprise in 2015 when he shared a kiss with fellow guest and business partner Mark Ruffalo, better known as the Hulk from The Avengers. Merrill made an appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
Merrill discussed how the range of roles that were available to her after turning 40 changed. “I was offered three witches a year when I turned 40,” she remarked. It was conveying to me how I felt about Hollywood and about people in their 40s. I was sorry, I had a backup, and I said no (pointing behind him).
She said, “So, a lot has changed for you in the last five years,” and Mark, 54, responded. She and the others were shocked when Meryl unexpectedly proceeded to kiss her on the lips as if moved by her comments. After giving Mark a lengthy kiss, he covered his face before continuing to smile while keeping his hands on his lips. “I was looking for an excuse,” Meryl continued. Mark’s seatmate James McAvoy also inquired, “Are you alright? We should smell! Allow me to smell it.
Norton remarked about the unexpected kiss, “He was so at ease with Mark Ruffalo, so smooth.” It never works out like this, Mark said, still attempting to regain his sobriety.
Meryl and Mark’s kissing video was uploaded to the show’s YouTube channel. Currently, it has received more than 5 million views. “It was really effortless,” a viewer said in response to the video. The reaction to the kiss, however, was priceless. Wow, she’s so cute. The fact that Mark goes in for a hug and Meryl kisses him and he gets so excited, said one person who described the scene as iconic. a TV moment that will live forever. Another person wrote, “I’m thanking God for the honor of being kissed by Meryl Streep and looking up Scar after the kiss.” ‘Mark’s reaction to that kiss is my reaction if Mark ever kissed me,’ a female fan further wrote.
