Meryl Streep walks down memory lane with Hathaway, De Niro, Kline


Meryl Streep has a few thank-you notes to write, as the acting legend was toasted by a roster of her peers for the Tuesday telecast of "The 34th Annual Kennedy Center Honors."

Streep, whose body of work includes "The Deer Hunter," "Postcards From the Edge" and "The Iron Lady," sat wearing the coveted awards' striped regalia with husband Don Gummer beside President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

At Washington, D.C.'s Kennedy Center opera house, former costars Stanley Tucci, Kevin Kline and Emily Blunt praised the actress for her "superhuman" gifts, versatility and, quite sweetly, her friendship.

Anne Hathaway, who played Streep's terrified magazine assistant in "The Devil Wears Prada," stole the show with a musical number that showcased her singing talent and even some gymnastics — Hathaway busted out a split at one point (see it below).

Robert De Niro introduced Streep, mentioning that she'd had been nominated for an Oscar 16 times and joking, "You know what that means? She's sat through the Academy Awards 16 times." 

We have a feeling she didn't mind sitting through this honor, which also saw salutes to singers Neil Diamond and Barbara Cook, cellist Yo-Yo Ma and saxophonist and composer Sonny Rollins. The awards were presented Dec. 4.

Stanley Tucci engaged to Emily Blunt's sister Felicity

Stanley Tucci costarred with Emily Blunt in "The Devil Wears Prada," and now he'll costar in life with Emily's sister: Tucci is engaged to marry Felicity Blunt.

Older sib Felicity was set up on a blind date with Tucci by her sis, and clearly things went well.

"Stanley is very happy with her," a source close to the couple observed.

Tucci's previous wife, Kate, died in 2009 after a battle with cancer. Stanley has three children from that marriage -- twins Isabella and Nicolo and daughter Camilla. 

Dates are unsure, but when the "I do's" are all done, Tucci will land Emily's husband, John Krasinski of "The Office," as a brother-in-law.
