“We had the best time. It was a ten-year reunion for all of us,” Baranski says in the video above. “Pierce [Brosnan] and Colin Firth and Stellan [Skarsgård] and Julie Walters and Meryl [Streep]—and then we had one addition: we had Cher.”

Though Baranski doesn't sing with Cher in the film, Baranski did share what is was like being on set with her (while offering an impression of the legendary performer).
