Mirren’s subsequent movies from this period included the drama Collateral Beauty (2016), the sentimental comedy The Leisure Seeker (2017), and the period horror film Winchester (2018). She played the villainous Mother Ginger in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018), an adaptation of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s 19th-century ballet. Among her film credits from 2019 was the thriller Anna, in which she portrayed the KGB handler of a model-turned-assassin, and The Good Liar, a cat-and-mouse drama that also featured Ian McKellen.

Family & Personal Life

Elisha Cuthbert dated Trace Ayala, the best friend and business partner of singer-songwriter and actor, Justin Timberlake, from 2003-05, and was engaged to him in 2004. However, they broke off the engagement in November 2005, following which Timberlake wrote the song What Goes Around Comes Around, allegedly about Cuthbert cheating Ayala with hockey player Sean Avery.

She began dating Avery soon after, but broke up with him in 2007, following which she became involved in a relationship with another hockey player, Dion Phaneuf. In 2008, Avery was suspended for six games and then kicked off the team by the Dallas Stars after he made a crude remark about his ex-girlfriend’s new affair with Phaneuf.

Cuthbert and Phaneuf announced their engagement in September 2012 and got married on July 6, 2013, at St. James Catholic Church in Summerfield, Prince Edward Island. The couple, who reside at Phaneuf’s waterfront estate outside New London, Prince Edward Island, welcomed daughter Zaphire Phaneuf on December 21, 2017.
