After being presented with an award by Prince William during last night’s BAFTAs, and spending a bit of time with him backstage, Helen Mirren gushed about just how un-princely the prince really is, and meant it in the best way possible.

While speaking with the press Helen said, “I don’t mean this rudely, but you would never think that he was a prince, which to me is the biggest compliment you can make. I just felt as though I was meeting a very nice chap. There was no prince-ness about him at all.” 

During his presentation to her, The Duke of Cambridge joked that it might be more appropriate for him to refer to Helen as “granny,” since Helen won an award for portraying The Queen (Prince William’s grandmother) in the 2006 film of the same name.

Helen’s Elegant Turn At The London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

helen mirren (1)



Helen Mirren looks amazing, doesn’t she? The ‘Red’ and ‘Red 2‘ star was elegance personified at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards last night. LOVE that pink satin top to her black gown.

Normally I’m not a big fan of bows, but I like Helen’s here. It adds an extra touch to the simplicity of this gown. What do you think of Helen’s upswept hairstyle? I’m a fan.

Walk The ‘Red’ Carpet At The Premiere Of ‘Red 2′

Red 2 UK film premiere

Talk about a good looking couple!  Helen Mirren and Bruce Willis were quite the pair as they walked the red carpet for the UK Premiere of their film Red 2 at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square.

Helen was ravishing in red in a cocktail length red dress with black beaded embellishments. Helen brought her husband Taylor Hackford with her for the event.  Bruce brought his lovely wife Emma Herring who wore a gorgeous teal blue dress.  I haven’t seen the original movie Red so I probably won’t see the sequel, but it does look like it has a great cast!

Fun With Footwear For ‘Red 2′ Premiere

Los Angeles premiere of 'RED 2'

Helen Mirren wore an elegant frock to the premiere of ‘Red 2,’ but she decided to have some fun when it came to her footwear. Helen must’ve seen some pictures of Lady Gaga. LOOK at those platforms she’s wearing!

I think Helen got a little nostalgic for the 70s, however. All those clear platforms are missing are goldfish swimming in them- LOL. I love that Helen is confident enough to just have fun on the red carpet.

Hot New Clip: ‘Red 2′

Helen Mirren proves she can still hold her own with the big boys in ‘Red 2.’ LOVE it! Here’s a clip from ‘Red 2‘ that shows Helen has quite a way with a gun in a tight situation. I remember hearing about ‘Red’ and thinking it sounded interesting. I caught it on a movie channel and loved it.

Can’t WAIT for ‘Red 2′ to come out. Helen is one of the best characters in it, although I like Bruce Willis and John Malkovich, too. Are you looking forward to ‘Red 2′? I absolutely plan to see this one on the big screen.

Attends The Chelsea Flower Show
