Let’s Take A Quick Helen Mirren Break

Not a break FROM Helen Mirren, that wouldn’t make any sense, but a break from things like this and this, during which we get to gather ourselves and listen to Helen Mirren say a few super chill things. Deal? From Celebitchy:

“I’d been watching America’s Top Model which I’m obsessed by,” she told BBC Breakfast while promoting her new play The Audience.

“This girl had her pink hair and I noticed because it came out really quickly so there she is with really pink hair and then five days later it’s all gone so I thought that would be cool, I might have a go at that”.

Mirren, who is taking up the role once more of the Queen, insists that she doesn’t want to be only known for playing the monarch after having starred in Stephen Frears’ critically acclaimed 2006 movie.

“I didn’t want to become the actress who plays the Queen if you know what I mean, I don’t think that’s very nice for me and it’s not very nice for the Queen,” she said.

“I didn’t want to become the actress who plays the Queen / if you know what I mean / I don’t think that’s very nice for me / and it’s not very nice for the Queen.” Hahah. I bet you didn’t even notice that it rhymed until I put in the slashes! Now you know, and you are welcome. Very very good rhymes! And a wonderful quote about why she dyed her hair pink with no added punctuation that makes it seem like it came from a 20-year-old on coke. Love that Helen Mirren loves ANTM. Genuinely love everything presented here in this excerpt. Feeling better already. Ok, BREAK OVER!
