Looks like the Iron Lady ain't so invincible after all!

Proving to us mere mortals that this indefatigable, incomparable, indomitable screen legend is, indeed, still human, Meryl Streep showed up to promote her new film Monday with a conspicuous bandage wrapped around her left hand.

The star popped up in downtown New York City to stump for the dramedy Hope Springs, which costars Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell.

So what gives?

Relax, La Streep is far from down for the count: The three-time Oscar winner cut her hand while slicing an avocado, her rep confirms to E! News.

Per, she reportedly got stitched up by a doctor in Connecticut, where she lives, before undergoing hand surgery in New York.

Guess all those slicing and dicing skills she picked up for her role as Julia Child in 2009's Julie & Julia didn't quite work in her favor.

But, ever the trouper, Streep still soldiered forth to help promote Hope Springs. C'mon, let's all give the gal a, um, big hand.
