The official handle of the film festival shared pictures of the Academy Award winner and wrote in the caption, "Oh, don't be ridiculous, Andrea. Everybody wants this. Everybody wants to be Meryl Streep!" a reference from the iconic film ‘The Devil Wears Prada'.

In an earlier statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress said, "I am immeasurably honored to receive the news of this prestigious award. To win a prize at Cannes, for the international community of artists, has always represented the highest achievement in the art of filmmaking. To stand in the shadow of those who have previously been honored is humbling and thrilling in equal part. I so look forward to coming to France to thank everyone in person this May!"

Meryl won the Best Actress prize at Cannes in 1989. She returned to the renowned French festival, after a successful Hollywood career spanning five decades. Previous recipients of the Cannes honorary Palme d'Or include Jeanne Moreau, Marco Bellocchio, Catherine Deneuve, Jean-Pierre Leaud, Jane Fonda, Agnes Varda, Forest Whitaker, and Jodie Foster.

The festival will run from May 14 to May 24.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Meryl Streep is all set to return for the fourth season of 'Only Murders in the Building'. She will reprise the recurring role of Loretta Durkin, whom she started playing in Season 3 of the series. The character starred in Oliver's (Martin Short) Broadway show in the most recent season, with the two becoming romantically involved.

Created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman, 'Only Murders in the Building' follows Charles Haden-Savage (Martin), Oliver Putnam (Short), and Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez), three neighbors in a New York City apartment called the Arconia, who come together to record a true crime podcast about the murders of their fellow residents, for which they are continually framed.
