In the most recent episode of Hot Ones featuring Sean Evans, they brought on awarding-winning actress and powerhouse Viola Davis. (Who was there promoting her amazing film The Woman King.) Per usual, one of the most entertaining bits of this interview came near the end when the wings get hotter and the questions get more complex. Here Davis told a story where she felt somewhat thrown by her peer and coworker, Meryl Streep.

She started the story by assuring Evans that Streep is a “very lovely woman by the way.” Then, she continued recounting a time Streep asked Davis to cover for her at an award show (that was confirmed Streep would win), and Davis felt ill-equipped when she got there. Not only was this Davis’ first award show, but Streep gave her no guidance on how to accept the award on her behalf. Davis compared the panic feeling to the wing she just ate which was the second to last.
