Meryl Streep doesn't agree with the term "toxic masculinity", and says that the use of the expression can be harmful for boys.
She made the comment while taking part in a question and answer session for the upcoming second season of "Big Little Lies", in which Streep is a new cast member, reports independent.co.uk.
During the talk, which was hosted by Vanity Fair, Streep addressed the topic of toxic masculinity while discussing an anecdote about a male fan who had told actress Nicole Kidman that he enjoyed the show.
The three-time Oscar winner explained that she dislikes the term because, in her opinion, all individuals can exhibit toxic behaviour, regardless of gender.
"Sometimes I think we're hurt. We hurt our boys by calling something toxic masculinity. I do," Streep said.
