By Gina DiFalco,

An unlikely pair that is Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep and rapper 50 Cent attended the New York Knicks vs. Los Angeles Lakers game at Madison Square Garden in New York on Sunday night. They even posed for pictures with Kobe Bryant after the game.

50 Cent documented the night on his Instagram page, writing such captions as “Best ball KOBE, Best Rap 50, Best Actress Meryl Streep. TOP THAT #SMSAUDIO,” and “Things got a little gangsta. Lol TURN UP, Turn Down for what!#smsaudio.”

He captioned the last one, “Man I got a good life man lol#smsaudio.”

New York Daily News notes the August: Osage County actress, 64, sat next to the “In Da Club” rapper courtside, laughing and joking around. The Knicks’ digital media coordinator even referred to them as “two peas in a pod” on Twitter.

However, it wasn’t just the two of them getting chummy at the game. Streep’s husband, Don Gummer, was sitting on the other side of her at the game.
