Amy Schumer has quickly become the unexpected "It" Girl of Hollywood, from her recent Vogue magazine cover to her successful Inside Amy Schumer show. The comedian's relatable charm is now catching the eye of one of the industry's biggest stars: Meryl Streep (yes, that Meryl).

The legendary actress revealed to Huffington Post who she'd pick to play her an a biopic. Without a second thought, Streep said “Amy Schumer, of course." Like many, Amy was shocked by the news and reacted on social media with a simple but very appropriate "Holy shit":

Now, we don't know if a Meryl Streep biopic is actually in the works (she definitely deserves one), but it must feel very awesome to have such an iconic actress as a fan. Meryl's latest role was in the biopic (how ironic) Florence Foster Jenkins, while, earlier this year, Amy snagged a Golden Globe nomination for 2015's Trainwreck.
