Watch Tom Hanks And Meryl Streep Read Each Other's Movie Lines In Character

From "Forrest Gump" to "The Devil Wears Prada."

For those who don't know, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks star in The Post, a film that explores a week in 1971 when Katherine Graham, the publisher at The Washington Post, made the decision to publish the Pentagon Papers. Streep, of course, plays Graham, and Hanks plays the newspaper's editor, Ben Bradlee.

During a recent appearance on The Ellen Show, Streep and Hanks talk about the movie, its message, and what it was like working together. Beyond that, the pair talks about their favorite roles that the other has played: Streep notes Hanks' roles in Forrest Gump and Charlie Wilson's War, and Hanks applauds Streep for her roles in The Devil Wears Prada, Sophie's Choice, and The Iron Lady.


With that, Ellen DeGeneres asks Hanks and Streep to read different quotes from their movies while acting out each other's characters. Streep begins by reading one famous quote from Forrest Gump, just as Hanks himself would:

"My mom always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

Hanks then does his best Streep impression, playing her character from The Devil Wears Prada. We particularly love when Streep dons a Woody-inspired hat, reading Hanks' lines from Toy Story. And when DeGeneres takes out a wig for Hanks to wear to read lines from The Iron Lady, Streep can't keep it together — and neither can we.
