We all know Dame Helen Mirren is queen of the world. So how exactly did she get there? At the recent Elle Women in Hollywood Awards, Helen gave her tips for world domination. Check it out below.

5. Don’t Drink Alcohol on Days that Don’t End with “Y”

“Never drink alcohol, unless you’re celebrating something, upset or something, or if it’s a day that ends in the letter Y. And never drink when you’re driving

4. Marry Late in Life

“There are no rules about love, I don’t believe, but don’t be in a rush to get married. Honestly. I married Taylor ❲Hackford❳ much later in my life and it’s worked out just great. Now give your partner the freedom and support to achieve their ambitions, very important. And that goes both ways, men and women.”

3. Split Your Aces

“At the blackjack table, always split aces, eights, and nines. Believe me, it really improves the odds.”

2. Make Time for Friends

“Connect with friends daily. I don’t mean on Facebook. Better to have three great friends than 300 friends on social media. Friends you really talk to

1. Ignore Donald Trump

“And finally, finally, ignore anyone who judges the way you look. Especially if he or she is some anonymous miserable creep lurking on the internet or is a bloated, small-headed, dinosaur-y-handed candidate for president.”
