Meryl Streep has admitted she "craves" Oscar nominations.
The actress - who has been nominated for her 18th Academy Award for her performance in August: Osage County - revealed on US TV show Jimmy Kimmel Live that she still loves being recognised for her work, reported The Wrap.
"There are aspects of it that are terrifying, like getting a dress that you know will be torn apart the next day by everybody, but it's very exciting," she said.
Jimmy asked: "So you like that, it's not like Woody Allen."
And Meryl - who already has three Oscars on her mantelpiece - replied: "I don't like it. But I crave it, I guess."
The star also explained that despite her success, she still feels like she has to audition for parts.
"In a way I feel like I have to audition every time I begin, because my... reputation is so hideously huge that everybody is like, looking really hard. So it feels like an audition, that first reading of anything."
