Hell yes, I’m doing a Style Stealer for Dame Helen Mirren, because she is a flawless queen who proves age ain’t nuthin’ but a number and women of any decade can rock bright red pumps and girly white dresses, dame it, I mean, damn it. Details for this fabulous outfit recreation are below… Keep reading »
“I’m hesitant to say this because I don’t want to knock anybody who’s done it, but the whole thing with plastic surgery…When you’re around people who celebrate age and respect every line for telling a story, it’s beautiful. I wish there was more of a celebration of getting older. When I do magazine shoots, people always say, ‘Oh, she doesn’t age,’ but I have the best make-up people and photographers. I don’t look like that every day.”
– Winona Ryder serves up some realness to Red magazine about the aging process and claims, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that she is indeed getting older like a normal human being. That wasn’t even the best part of the interview, though. Winona also revealed that she is renting a cottage from — wait for it — Helen Mirren! And apparently Helen is a hands-on landlord… Keep reading »
I am pretty bored of seeing famous white ladies twerking, but for Helen Mirren, I will make an exception. Helen Mirren can do whatever she wants. She is a Dame, after all. If Helen Mirren wants to twerk, who am I to tell her not to? I am a mere plebe. Miley Cyrus, on the other hand? She can stop. [Celebuzz]
“If I’d had children and had a girl, the first words I would have taught her would have been ‘fuck off’ because we weren’t brought up ever to say that to anyone, were we? And it’s quite valuable to have the courage and the confidence to say, ‘No, fuck off, leave me alone, thank you very much.’ You see, I couldn’t help saying ‘Thank you very much,’ I just couldn’t help myself…I want girls to swear at men.”
– Dame Helen Mirren on how she would have prepared her own daughters (if she had them) for success in the entertainment industry. In an interview with The Mail magazine, the actress gave a candid account of the years of sexism she endured in her career and this was her takeaway. I think her advice is applicable to women in every industry. Although, maybe you don’t have to use the word FUCK. The sentiment is dead on. You need to learn say no sometimes in order to be successful. [The Daily Mail UK]
Helen Mirren, oh man, don’t even get me started on that trollop. I am so sick of her slutty red carpet outfits. You guys won’t even BELIEVE what she wore this time. That’s right. Look at those platform heels. Guys…she went full Stodden. I understand why all women of all ages in all of Hollywood would want to embrace the look of Courtney Stodden she is, after all, our modern day Grace Kelly. And beyond. Elton John is going to re-write “Candle In The Wind” so hard for her. Read more on Evil Beet Gossip…
We’ve heard from Dame Helen Mirren on the topic of “Doctor Who,” in particular, the casting of the new Doctor, a few times now. But she’s not done yet (or at least people aren’t done asking her about it yet) and we’re totally fine with that. Hear who she suggested to take up the mantle.
Mirren was asked by ITV’s “Daybreak” whether or not she’d take on the role of the 12th Doctor on the long-running BBC sci-fi series. She answered, “absolutely not.” And although we’ve heard that from her before, she made sure to drive the point home.
“I’m not going to be the first female Doctor Who – no, no, no,” she said. “I absolutely wouldn’t contemplate that.”
Although she does think there’s a right person for the job. Read more on The Mary Sue…
