Helen Mirren Rides The NYC Subway Like A Dame

You never know what or who you might see when riding the subway in New York City, but a recent episode of “Broad City” did a good job depicting just some of the bizarre and smelly possibilities. However, not every outing on public transpo has to be so bleak — in addition to a steaming…

Winona Ryder Swears She Does Actually Age (Plus, You’ll Never Believe Who Her Landlord Is)

“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…

You Know You Want To See Helen Mirren Twerk

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…

If Helen Mirren Had Daughters, She Would Have Taught Them How To Say “F**K Off” To Men

“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…

Helen Mirren Has Some Very Specific Suggestions For Who Should Play The 12th “Doctor Who”

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…

It’s Time To Cry: Helen Mirren “Knights” A Dying Boy To Make His Dreams Come True

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…

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……

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…

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.

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…

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…

Hell Yeah, Helen Mirren

It should come as no surprise that a woman who can rock animal print and leather at 65, once wrapped her girls in a sequined crop top. Damn. [F**k Yeah, Hot Actress]…

Helen Mirren Positively Growls

Damn you, Helen Mirren, for looking so fine. Mirren proves that wearing leopard-print after 50 doesn’t have to look like some tickety-tackity cougartown tragedy. Here she is at the London premiere of “Arthur” in an animal-print Dolce & Gabbana gown and leather jacket, and it works. How you do sexy so well, lady? [W.E.R.Q]…

Helen Mirren Doesn’t Want To Be Your Stinkin’ Sex Symbol

“I love to dress up. But that’s just me. I don’t want to lay it on anyone else. If I’m held up as some sort of symbol that you have to be sexy in your 60s … well, why the f**k do you have to be sexy in your 60s? You don’t. You just have…

This Year’s Best Oscar Presenters Were Senior Citizens

Last night’s Oscars was billed as “young and hip” thanks to James Franco and Anne Hathway, so it’s interesting that my two favorite presenters of the night were ages 65 and 94. We’ll start with the baby of those two—Helen Mirren. While so many of last night’s presenters were stilted and visibly nervous, Helen appeared…

Helen Mirren Does Not Worship At The Altar Of The 18-Year-Old Male Penis

Helen Mirren is one of those people who, when she talks, you listen. This Tuesday, the Dame received the Sherry Lansing Leaderships Award — so named for the former CEO of Paramount Pictures — at The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Women in Entertainment breakfast. Although consummately gracious for receiving her award, Helen criticized the…

Helen Mirren Shares Her Beauty Secrets

“Holding your tummy in is another trick for making you look and feel good. I don’t know why, but I do, by nature, hold my tummy in. [… And] Four-inch platforms give you great height and make your legs look unbelievably long. I used only to be able to get them in stripper shops, but…

Yesterday, Russell Brand tweeted this photo of him with his “Arthur” co-star, Helen Mirren, along with the caption, “At last. A bath from Helen Mirren.
