Meryl Streep is exactly as awesome as you would imagine Meryl Streep to be.
I'm not as famous as Stephen Hawking, but certainly in the U.S., I have a very high profile for a scientist. It is an awesome responsibility, one that I don't shoulder lightly.

A lot of the jewelry that I wear are fan gifts because they're so awesome and they give me great presents.
