Los Angeles - Meryl Streep has confused Snapchat with "sexting".

The 67-year-old actress has admitted she used the app without realising what it was, because she thought the social media outlet, which allows you to send a picture to a contact for it to be erased after a few seconds, was when people send risqué text messages.

Speaking about her confusion to, the Mama Mia! star said: "Somebody told me that I Snapchatted, but I don't know how to Snapchat and I thought it was the thing that you do when you're sexting sort of and then you want it to be erased."

And the Florence Foster Jenkins actress - who has daughters Mamie, 33, Grace, 30, Louisa, 25, and 36-year-old son Henry with her husband Don Gummer - has revealed her family mock her speech and mannerisms "endlessly", which she doesn't enjoy.

She explained: "I laugh, but I kind of don't like it. Especially when I answer the phone and they can tell that it's me pretending to be, like, a Jamaican operator or something, because I sort of start talking in the accent of the person I'm talking to. Oh, they're merciless."
