Helen Mirren talks secrets, lies, and dating advice | theSkimm

The Story

Helen Mirren loves a suspenseful thriller.

Same.

But she actually gets to star in them too. Meet: “The Good Liar.” What should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with ultimate stakes.  

Sounds like a wild ride.

Don’t worry, we have a feeling some revenge is involved (See: video). Fun fact: if Helen wasn’t an actor she would be a hairdresser because she loves cutting hair. We’re ready to book our next appointment.
