Meryl Streep appeared on Friday night's "The Late Show" with David Letterman, despite a hacking cough, a bronchial infection and sinus infection.
Streep was promoting her role as a nun in the film adaptation of "Doubt."
As she came out coughing, unable to complete many of her sentences without sneaking into a hack, Letterman exclaimed, "You really shouldn't be out walking around."
Streep's quick response, "Well I was afraid to cancel."
The interview continued with coughs and tissue and ended with a few good squirts of hand sanitizer.
