Ellen DeGeneres teamed up with “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night to play against Oscar nominees Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell in a game of Password.

The game is simple: Contestants get to drop a one-word clue in hopes their partner will guess the password. If they fail, the other team can steal.

As usual, the Hollywood stars Fallon recruited appeared to have a blast, even if words “joint” and “blush” gave them some trouble.

“Revlon,” Carell said as a clue to “Wild” star Witherspoon, without realizing DeGeneres is a spokeswoman for a different brand.

“Cover Girl,” the “Foxcatcher” star shouted out to correct himself.
