Robert De Niro also supports Meryl Streep.

After Meryl Streep called out President-elect Donald Trump during her Golden Globes speech on Sunday, several fans and fellow celebrities have shown their support for her.

Trump fired back on Twitter, calling Streep “overrated” — and that was just too much for De Niro.

De Niro wrote a letter to Streep that was obtained by PEOPLE.

“What you said was great. It needed to be said, and you said it beautifully,” he praised in the note. “I have so much respect for you that you did it while the world was celebrating your achievements. I share your sentiments about punks and bullies. Enough is enough.”


Streep and De Niro are longtime friends and have appeared in several movies together, including “The Deer Hunter” (1974) and “First Man” (2004).

Read his full response here:

Meryl –

What you said was great. It needed to be said, and you said it beautifully. I have so much respect for you that you did it while the world was celebrating your achievements. I share your sentiments about punks and bullies. Enough is enough. You, with your elegance and intelligence, have a powerful voice – one that inspires others to speak up as they should so their voices will be heard too. It is so important that we ALL speak up.  

We love you. 

Bob
