Simon Helberg describes in detail his experience working alongside the legendary Meryl Streep in the new film 'Florence Foster Jenkins.'


King: What is it like to work with Meryl Streep?

Helberg: It is as much of a dream as as I guess anyone would ever imagine.

King: She equals her rep?

Helberg: Yeah, and she makes she makes you better. I don't know if she'd make you better, but she made me better and I didn't think it was possible. Yeah, she's- and I mean, you can, in that scene too, there's just things that she does that you don't- as an actor-it's such an amazing thing to be surprised when you're in a scene with somebody and then to surprise yourself. And that is, that's what it is with her. It's constantly new and there's nothing she can't do.

King: And Hugh Grant's very good at light comedy.

Helberg: He's- well, he's a very good actor. This is more, uh, has more depth and nuance, I think, than you've ever seen him
