Meryl Streep, Hillary Clinton

If democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had any say in who played her in a movie, she knows exactly who she would pick. So, who is Hillary's Choice?

None other than 19-time Oscar nominee Meryl Streep!

During a hot seat round of questioning on Live with Kelly and Michael, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan posed a series of personal questions to the new grandmother—one of them being who she would elect to portray her in a film about her life. 

"Well, Meryl Streep, of course," she answered with little hesitation. It's a perfect choice, considering it would be fitting to have one of Hollywood's greatest players portray an equally iconic political force. 

In addition to the revelation, Clinton shared a number of other personal details, including the fact that chocolate is her guilty pleasure and singing "badly, but enthusiastically" is her hidden talent.

When you're resume is as packed as Clinton's is, you're not required to sing on key. 

The White House hopeful also dished on her private Thanksgiving plans with husband Bill Clinton, daughter Chelsea Clinton and a bevy of guests.

"Starting about 15 years ago now we began to invite a lot of Chelsea's friends who were foreigners and they had never heard of Thanksgiving. They didn't know anything about it and then we started to invite more young americans who were her friends who couldn't go home," Clinton described.

"We have about 30 people and they are from all over the world plus all over America and some of them we see during the year, but a lot of them we only see at Thanksgiving, so we just have the greatest extended family experience and now they're coming back with their children and it just is a special time," she added.

While the voting booths aren't set to open for another year, the potential first female president shared one sentiment if she were to face-off against Republican opponent Donald Trump.  

"If he and I were to run against each other, I would be pleased on one ground, which is that I would not be the only person whose hairstyle was a topic of conversation," she joked.

Though she does have a point, we can confidently say Clinton's blond coiffure would win a competition against the Donald's comeover any day.
