Meryl Streep's latest role was a part she wasn't even cast in, but — no surprise — she aced it all the same.

At Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, the 67-year-old briefly played mom to Ryan Gosling when she noticed his bow tie looked a bit askew.

The "La La Land" actor leaned forward so the icon could remedy the situation, and he looked absolutely delighted by the gesture.

As for everyone else at the event, they looked delighted to be in the presence of the "Florence Foster Jenkins" star at all.

Gina Rodriguez could barely contain herself when meeting Streep on the red carpet, tweeting, "I'm chill right?" after sharing a photo of her not-so-chill self with the screen legend.

When Jeff Bridges caught up with his pal on the red carpet, he just held on tight.
