Robert De Niro Supports Meryl Streep's Golden Globes Speech

People.com: Fans and celebrities alike have voiced support for Meryl Streep following her impassioned acceptance speech at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday evening, but perhaps no one is prouder than her longtime friend, Robert De Niro.

The 73-year-old actor, who received the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2011 show, wrote a heartfelt response to Streep, 67, in a letter, obtained exclusively by PEOPLE.

“What you said was great. It needed to be said, and you said it beautifully,” De Niro expressed. “I have so much respect for you that you did it while the world was celebrating your achievements. I share your sentiments about punks and bullies. Enough is enough.”
