Meryl Streep giggles and holds hands with rapper 50 Cent at basketball match in New York
They’re unlikely friends but Meryl Streep and 50 Cent had a ball sat when they next to each other at the Los Angeles Lakers vs New York Knicks game, on Sunday.
The A-list duo turned out for the New York event and ended up sitting next to each other on the front row, even holding hands at one point.
64-year-old Meryl was overcome by a fit of giggles as she sat between the 38-year-old gangsta rapper and her husband of 36 years, Don Gummer.

50 Cent looked like he had wrapped up warm for the game, pre-empting the blustery weather in the Big Apple.
