YOU AND US BOTH HELEN!
72-year-old ‘The Queen’ actress Helen Mirren covers Allure Magazine’s September issue, arriving on newsstands August 22. In the issue, the Oscar-winning actress has a lot to share with the mag. On advice she’d give her younger self: “It’d be to say “F–k off” more and stop being so bloody polite… In those days, you had to. It’s hard to explain how difficult it is to overcome the culture. You become a voice in the wilderness. No one wants to listen.”
ON being starstruck: “Oh, I’m always starstruck any time I meet a movie star. I’m paralyzed. I say, ‘Right, Helen, just be natural; just be yourself. Don’t talk too much; don’t stare.’ I have to give myself all these instructions.” For more of Helen in Allure click here, photos below/above:
