50 Cent and Meryl Streep kick it at the NY Knicks vs LA Lakers basketball game

Rapper 50 Cent and Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep appear to have a lot more in common than one might think.

The two were spotted sitting court-side at the Knicks game against the Lakers Sunday at Madison Square Garden in New York — and seemed to be getting along famously.

Streep, who attended the game with her husband Don Grummor, sat next to 50 Cent as they laughed and briefly held hands during the game which ended in a victory for the Knicks.

Lakers player Kobe Bryant greeted the two stars after the game and posted this photo, saying “#50 #merylstreep #respect #legends That’s All.”

50 cent also posted a photo on Instagram showcasing his budding friendship with Streep.

“Things got a little gangsta. Lol TURN UP, Turn Down for what!#smsaudio,” wrote 50 Cent.
