It may have earned her a best actress Oscar nomination, but Meryl Streep wasn’t entirely pleased with one particular movie role.

“You won’t guess because I’ve just collected a lot of awards for that film,” she said Friday on the “The Graham Norton Show,” flipping her hair, jokingly. “It was venerated.”

She finally admitted the performance was in the 1981 movie adaptation “The French Lieutenant’s Woman.” Streep played an actress (opposite Jeremy Irons) in the movie-within-a-movie whose character was having an affair both on and off screen.
