In case you ever doubted Dame Helen Mirren was awesome…
In case you ever doubted Dame Helen Mirren was awesome, let us reming you of a little interview that happened back in 1975.
When an interviewer tries to imply that Helen cannot be a serious actress due to her large breasts, she quickly retorts,
“I can’t say that would necessarily be true. I mean what a crummy performance if people are obsessed with the size of your bosom over anything else. I would hope that the performance and the play and the living relationship between all the people on the stage and all the people in the audience would overcome such . . . boring questions, really.”
And that’s how it’s done! Watch the clip in full below (skip to 1:30 for Helen’s take down).
Lena Finkel is the Editor and Founder of Femestella. Prior to starting Femestella, she worked at People, InStyle, and Tiger Beat. Her favorite Housewife is Bethenny Frankel and when she’s not watching RHONY, you can probably find her obsessing over her tuxedo cat Tom or hoarding drugstore lipsticks.
