Meryl Streep plays lip guessing game with grace on ‘Ellen’ (Video)

Meryl Streep. (Evan Agostini - AP)

So when the Oscar-winning actress was asked to look at a photos of lips she’s kissed and guess which fellow celebrity they belong to on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” — a pretty silly affair — she did so with the level of grace on would expect from such a fine lady.
