It's pretty important you see this video of Meryl Streep on the Ellen Show.

So, Meryl Streep appeared on The Ellen Show recently and – as you would expect – she made things interesting.

Quite seriously, Ellen asked Meryl to read – out loud – a whole bunch of usually uninteresting things, but with with various personalities to show off her acting chops.

This was the result.

Fair warning. If you didn’t crack a smile, you may just be Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada.
