Helen Mirren as the queen and Oliver Burton

Dame Helen Mirren, what a lady. In addition to being sexy, stylish proof that age ain’t nothin’ but a number, she’s also a kind-hearted woman, willing to don a wig and some makeup to make a little boy happy. Ten-year-old Oliver Burton is fighting his third bout with cancer, and his chances look grim. At the top of his “bucket list” was to meet the Queen of England. But unfortunately, the real queen couldn’t make it. And that’s where Helen Mirren stepped in.

Mirren, who’s currently appearing in London’s West End production of “The Audience” as the queen, also played Her Royal Highness in the movie, “The Queen.” She had Burton and his family attend a performance of the play and then invited them to join her backstage, where she treated them to tea and cookies — and never broke character.

We’re Totally Cool With Helen Mirren Wearing This Dress As Many Times As She Wants

Do you think it’s an issue that Helen Mirren has worn this same Dolce & Gabbana lily of the valley dress three times, on three separate occasions? I certainly do not. It’s a pretty much perfect frock on a pretty much perfect lady, so there you go. If the Duchess can do it, by all means… Carry on, Dame Helen, carry on.

Helen Mirren Has The Female “Body Of The Year”

We should probably start calling her Helen “Curvalicious” Mirren now. LA Fitness—yes, the gym chain—apparently conducted a survey of 2,000 members as to which celebrities have the hottest bodies. For dudes, a very predictable choice won—Mr. David Beckham. But surprisingly, Dame Helen was the top pick for women. Nearly 18 percent of those surveyed that she had the “Female Body of the Year,” and this is over Jennifer Lopez, Pippa Middleton, Elle “The Body” MacPherson, and Kate Winslet. All this goes to show—senior citizens can be sexy, too. [People] Keep reading »

13 Celebs Rocking The Union Jack

Helen Mirren wasn’t lying when she said things gets better after your 20s. While the picture of her younger self is breathtakingly beautiful — like I seriously can’t stop looking at it — Dame Helen looks damn good in herEsquire spread, wrapped in the British flag. She’s 65, people! And man, that makeshift Union Jack frock is a good look on her. [Celebitchy]

Helen Mirren Says It Gets Better (After Your 20s)

“The hardest period in life is one’s 20s. It’s a shame because you’re your most gorgeous and you’re physically in peak condition. But it’s actually when you’re most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s frightening.”

—It’s difficult to imagine Helen Mirren was ever insecure or filled with self-doubt — that’s her back in the day, yowza! — but apparently it is so. Would that we all age gracefully with kick-ass-edness, as she does. [Esquire] Keep reading »

Little Shop Of Helen

Dame Helen Mirren is a very accomplished lady. In addition to the many parts she’s played, we can now add the role of “carnivorous plant” to her resume. This week, Helen unveiled her new namesake plant, the “Helen,” at London’s Chelsea Flower Show. The “Helen,” born and bred in Sri Lanka, is a rare hybrid from the genus Nepenthes, a breed of carnivorous plants known “tropical pitcher plants” because monkeys often drink rain water out of them. It’s all so very “Little Shop of Horrors.” Let’s hope the “Helen” doesn’t have a thirst for human blood. Bwah ha ha ha! [This Is London UK] Keep reading »
