If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then a recent episode of Ellen has revealed that actors Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks are obviously big admirers of each other’s work.

During the appearance, the two actors went toe to toe and impersonated each other’s most iconic characters. Streep took on Forrest Grump and Woody from Toy Story, while Hanks turned on the charm in his impersonation of the ice Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada.

At a time when most talk show appearances seem to be cookie-cutter repeats of the same old tried formula, it’s refreshing to see these two stars enjoy themselves!
