Meryl Streep Talks About Lindsay Lohan, Tom Cruise And More Celeb Friends On 'Watch What Happens: Live' (VIDEO)

The first lady of cinema sat down with the king of the "Housewives" when Meryl Streep joined Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens: Live" (Sun.-Thu., 11 p.m. ET on Bravo). Streep was polished and demure as always, but also candid in her responses to Cohen's predictably wacky questions.

At one point, she had to say what various celebrities smelled like. It was here that viewers learned that while Nicolas Cage has a musky scent, Tom Cruise has no smell at all.

Streep was noticeably more somber when her former co-star, and current tabloid darling, Lindsay Lohan came up. In 2006, Lohan played Streep's daughter in the film "A Prairie Home Companion," and it was easy to see that Streep has some maternal hope for the actress.

"Aw," she said when Lohan's name came up. "I pray for Lindsay."

Tune in to "Watch What Happens: Live" every Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m. ET on Bravo.
