It's one thing to beat Meryl Streep, it's another thing to break her!

One of the most talked-about movie scenes of the year has to be Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep's epic showdown in August: Osage County, in which (Spoiler alert!) Roberts literally tackles Streep to the ground.

And on the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, Roberts admitted to Ryan Seacrest that she wished the Oscar-winning duo had set ground rules before filming the intense fight scene.

"I would have preferred if there had been," she said. "I just didn't want to break her because that's not how I want to go down in history: "the one girl that broke Meryl Streep in half!"

Good thing because that would be like destroying a national treasure!

But it wasn't just the fight scene that had people talking when they walked out of the theater after seeing August: Osage County, a film in which Roberts and Streep both landed acting nominations for.

Roberts does a whole lot of cursing in the film, something she totally forgot about before it hit theaters and told Seacrest that she now has mixed feelings about all the swearing.

"It had pros and cons because I forgot about it and now people keep reminding me and now I feel embarrassed," she admitted, adding that it's "possible" she cursed more in one scene of August than she has during her entire life.

As for her talked-about Dolce & Gabbana dress, which featured an oxford shirt underneath it, Roberts dished that every dress she tried on was "gorgeous, but this dress seemed like, 'That's what I'm looking for!'"
