The Other Woman: Sneak Peek

Three women unexpectedly form a strong bond and decide to give a three-timing cheater what he deserves. This is the crazy and sure-to-be-funny premise of the film “The Other Woman”. The film stars the beautiful and sexy trio of Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton. Life seems to be going well for Kate (Leslie Mann) and her husband Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) until Carly (Cameron Diaz) knocks on their door one day. Carly never suspects for a moment that Mark is lying to her – until the day he tells her he cannot make it for a date he had committed to. Realizing something is not right, she drives to the house where she thinks he lives alone and discovers that he has been deceiving her and is leading a double life as his wife Kate answers the door. Worse, Mark is a triple-timer as he is also dating the lovely and obviously unsuspecting Amber (Kate Upton).

Leslie Mann, who portrays Kate describes her character as “a very optimistic person, who is excited about life and happy with her husband Mark. But she is living in a bubble. Her life is all about making her husband happy and I think she’s lost herself. Suddenly everything is completely turned upside down when she finds out that her husband is having an affair with Cameron Diaz’s character, Carly, who doesn't know that Mark is married. Her whole world falls apart. Carly and Kate discover each other’s existence and they join forces to figure out what Mark is up to. Then they find out he has a third mistress (Kate Upton) and they all come together. To figure out how they’re going to deal with the situation and come to grips with what’s happening, these women support Kate in a way that helps her to grow and to work through all the suffering she is going through. I had so much fun playing this character. I was in a good mood every day”.

Mann also explains her synergy with Cameron and Kate by comparing it to music: “There are certain people who have an ear for comedy. It’s like a song and a rhythm, so when you’re doing comedy, if the other person isn’t hearing the same thing as you are, it just lays there and dies. Cameron hears the same thing as I do. We can pick up where the other one lets off and it’s like a good give-and-take. And Kate Upton has that, too. She knows how to play things and she’s super-smart”.

“The Other Woman” opens May 7 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
