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

Meryl Streep is a class act, no matter what she’s doing.

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.

Surprising? No way.

Even in the “meh” Margaret Thatcher biopic, “The Iron Lady,” The Post’s Ann Hornaday and other critics agree Streep is very Streep-esque. Translation: She’s absolutely fantastic. (Hornaday described her performance as “a perfectly executed triple axel that renders everything else just featureless ice.”)

Watch and learn whose lips Streep can accurately identify below.
