Cher, Meryl Streep

There was some lip locking happening on the blue carpet of the Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again premiere in London this week, courtesy of two of the film's stars, the legendary Cher and Meryl Streep.

On the blue carpet of the London debut of the newest Mamma Mia! movie, Cher, 72, and Meryl, 69, were snapped spontaneously sharing a kiss on the lips. Both looked gorgeous, Cher in a long all-black outfit and Streep wearing a long royal blue dress with three quarter sleeves.

In the new movie, Meryl reprises her role as Donna Sheridan from the 2008 original, while Cher plays her onscreen mother, Ruby Sheridan. But, this isn't the first time Cher and Meryl (Cheryl, shall we call them?) have worked together, as the two both appeared in the 1983 drama Silkwood. So, the two are old gal pals. 

In fact, Cher recently told ET of their longstanding friendship, "We've stayed friends all these years. I cannot believe that, but that was my first film, and she helped me. I mean, she was unbelievable, because I had no idea what I was doing." She added, "It's great to see her [again]."

After the premiere Cher took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the night, writing, "Well it was a GREAT NITE...I EVERYONE IN THE FILM,& EVERYONE WHO WORKED ON THE FILM.....ESPECIALLY MARY LOUISE STREEP," adding a lips emoji at the end. 

Ten years later, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again serves as the sequel to 2008's classic Mamma Mia!. The new installment of the flick sees Amanda Seyfried's Sophie pregnant while learning about her mother's past. The movie also stars Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Dominic Cooper, Stellan Skarsgård, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Lily James and more, and was directed by Ol Parker.
