WATCH: Meryl Streep Can Act the Crap Out of a Traffic Report

Sure, Meryl Streep is arguably the best actress in the business, but can she make an oatmeal recipe sound sexy? Can she make a traffic report sound painful?



Meryl Streep can do anything. She can shimmy with Pharrell at the Oscars, make Anne Hathaway look likeable, and of course, act the crap out of any role she's given. But can she do it on cue?

Ellen DeGeneres decided to find out by having Streep read mundane things like an oatmeal recipe or a traffic report as different characters. Spoiler alert: She nails it. 

Stick around for round two when Emma Thompson goes a little too deep in her method acting and stumps Ellen in an animal guessing game.
