“He was such a generous soul,” said Streep to host Matt Lauer. Streep looked back fondly on Williams’ boundless energy and commented on the actor’s friendship with fellow actor Christopher Reeve.

Afterwards, the pair discussed The Giver, which opens on Friday, and Streep’s feelings about science fiction.
