Meryl Streep is such a good actor that she could make reading the Dictionary sound fascinating. And putting Streep’s acting chops to the test, Ellen DeGeneres just further proved my point.
Stopping by DeGeneres’ show on Thursday, the host asked Streep to read boring texts in a variety of voices going from sexy, annoyed teen to a woman in labour.
Of course with Streep being the master that she is, she does it all flawlessly. And while this was just a silly performance, it was most definitely Oscar-worthy!
It’s no wonder why she was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in August: Osage County. She just keeps getting better and better!
