- Netflix just released a new psychological thriller film, Secret Obsession.
- It stars 31-year-old actress Brenda Song, who you might recognize from The Suite Life of Zac and Cody.
- Brenda Song's boyfriend is fellow child actor Macaulay Culkin, and they've been together since 2017.
Netflix has been killing it with new releases lately, and there’s another one you’ll want to have on your radar this weekend, Secret Obsession. The psychological thriller film just hit the streaming platform on July 18, and stars someone you may or may not recognize: Brenda Song.
Judging from the trailer (which, btw, has already been viewed 2.3 million times on YouTube) the movie looks so, so good. In it, Brenda plays a woman who gets hit by a car. When she wakes up in the hospital, she can’t remember who she is or any other details about her life—including who her husband is. Well, turns out the dude who claims he’s her husband isn’t really the guy she married, and it looks like things get super intense from there.
If Secret Obsession sounds like it's about to become your next obsession, you're probably dying to learn more about its leading lady. So, who is Brenda Song? Here’s what you need to know about her:
She’s been acting since practically forever.
Brenda’s first gig was appearing as a regular on a TV series called Thunder Alley when she was just 6, according to IMDb. Now 31 years old, she’s been working steadily in showbiz ever since.
Check out Brenda's acting chops in the Secret Obsession trailer:
Brenda’s a former Disney star.
Ahhhh, so that's where you've seen her before! Brenda's first breakout role was playing London Tipton (remember her?) on The Suite Life of Zac & Cody in 2005 and later on The Suite Life on Deck.
She also popped up in some other Disney series like Hannah Montana and Wizards of Waverly Place as a guest star.
Brenda has a famous boyfriend.
The two have kept their relationship pretty under-the-radar, but Brenda told Entertainment Tonight earlier in 2019 that being a child actor was "one thing" she and Macaulay bonded over in the beginning stages of their relationship.
"It’s almost like child actors… don’t even have to talk about it," she explained. "You just look each other in the eye and you nod and we know." She also said this to Us Weekly in 2018: "I don’t like to talk about my personal life, but everything’s wonderful and I’m happy."
Need proof? Just peep this adorable pic of Macaulay in bunny ears from Brenda's Insta:
She used to date Miley Cyrus' brother.
Brenda and Trace Cyrus were actually engaged for a while, but they called things off in 2012. It didn’t end well: Trace publicly accused Brenda of pretending to be pregnant and having a fake miscarriage, according to Just Jared. Yikes.
Brenda loves cats.
Like, Taylor Swift-level loves them. Her Instagram is filled with pictures of cats and cat references like this:
She still loves Disney.
In the past year, Brenda has been to both Disney World and Disneyland, according to her Instagram. (Btw, Belle and the Beast are her fave characters.)
"There’s nowhere else I’d rather be on my birthday than the happiest place on earth," she wrote in March.
By the way, Secret Obsession is on Netflix right now, so yeah, you might want to cancel those weekend plans.
