Presented by Warner Bros.’ The Good Liar
Around this time of year, there are always a ton of new movies coming out. Between feel-good family movies and tearjerker dramas, there’s a lot to choose from. But no matter what you’re into, we know which movie needs to be at the top of your list right now. The Good Liar is the intense, keeps-you-guessing thriller you’ve been waiting for, and let me tell you, it doesn’t disappoint.
Let me set the scene.The Good Liar centers on Betty and Roy, played by Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen, respectively. (Yeah, the cast is iconic, but more on that in a minute.) Betty, a wealthy widow, meets the charming Roy on an online dating site, but unbeknownst to her, he’s a conman with sinister intentions, and their burgeoning relationship soon spirals into a thrilling, dangerous game of cat-and-mouse. Things quickly escalate as the façade of their seemingly innocent love story cracks, revealing an unexpected web of lies. Basically, it’s a wild ride full of intrigue, darkness, and one unbelievable plot twist.
But now that we’ve talked a little about the wild plot, let’s go back to the actors here. The Good Liar combines two of the ultimate acting legends, Dame Helen Mirren and Sir Ian McKellen, for the first time in their careers. So like, you already know this movie is gonna be major. Between their long careers and piles of awards, you might think they’d be ready to kick their feet up and take a break (I have approximately zero awards and I already want a break), but no. Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen are at the top of their game here, and they bring the sinister, complex story to life in a way that will keep you guessing until the very end.
The Good Liar is a complicated puzzle that you’ll want to solve, and it’s best experienced on the big screen. So grab your friends, your partner, your parents, whoever, and get to work on solving the mystery together. You won’t be able to predict the ending, but that just makes it more fun. You don’t want to miss out on the must-see thriller of the season. Get tickets now.
We all have that crew of friends that we would do anything for, whether it’s driving them to the airport at 6am or finding matches for them on Ship. It’s just what friends do. Famous people are no different, except that the people in their group chat might also be A-listers. Casual. I don’t know about you, but my Ship crew definitely doesn’t have any Oscar winners in it. Here are some surprising celebrity friendships you might not have known about.
Serena Williams & Kim Kardashian
Serena Williams and Kim Kardashian are two of the most famous women in the world, and they’ve actually known each other for more than 15 years. A few years ago, Kim told Vogue, “Serena’s the girl you can call and say anything to. She’ll never judge you, and she’s never too busy for you.” Obviously Kim has a lot of respect for Serena, and she attended the tennis champion’s New Orleans wedding with other stars like Colton Haynes and Eva Longoria.
Russell Brand & Helen Mirren
Russell Brand and Helen Mirren are 30 years apart, but they both have a great sense of humor, and they love working together. They’ve done a couple of movies together, and Brand even called their relationship“an unconsummated love affair…between a Dame and a vagabond.” I’m not sure I know what he’s talking about, but I’m glad it works for them.
Jennifer Aniston & Robert Downey Jr.
Jen and Robert have been friends since the ‘90s, and she even visited him when he was in prison. Famously, he introduced her to her (now ex) husband Justin Theroux, and made a speech at their wedding. Seriously, how can I get Robert Downey Jr. to be in my Ship crew? I need Iron Man to find me some matches.
50 Cent & Bette Midler
When 50 Cent isn’t busy feuding with the stars of Vanderpump Rules, he spends time with unexpected friends like Meryl Streep and Bette Midler. He and Bette have attended each other’s charity events in the past, and Bette even joked that 50 Cent was going to produce a rap albumfor her. Still waiting to hear Bette Midler rap, but I’m glad these two get along so well.
Gwyneth Paltrow & Jay-Z
Gwyneth and Jay met way back in 2006, and they’ve maintained a close relationship since then. They’ve both spoken publicly about their admiration for one another, and Gwyneth even revealedthat her kids call Jay-Z “Uncle Jay.” Honestly, I’m obsessed.
Kris Jenner & Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence has been public about her obsession with reality shows like The Real Housewives of New York City and Keeping Up With The Kardashians, so she was thrilled to get to know Kris Jenner in real life. A few years ago, Jennifer’s friends threw her a surprise birthday party and invited Kris. When JLaw first met her, she said“it was the closest ever come to losing consciousness. Honestly, I would be the same way.
So there you have it. Just like you and your best friend that you used to hate in middle school, friends can come from unexpected places. Now you’re her bridesmaid, and she’s finding matches for you on Ship, so anything is possible. Now seriously, who do I talk to about Robert Downey Jr. being my matchmaker?
