It's like, you don't need any more reasons to fall in love with Helen Mirren, but they keep coming at us, anyway. We're not mad, we're just overwhelmed with all of the beautiful reasons why the Oscar winner is our favorite badass in the game.
So what's the latest evidence that Mirren is the G.O.A.T? Well, a throwback interview of the then-30-year-old star has resurfaced on the Internet, and shows the actress shutting down a sexist interviewer who couldn't help but talk about her figure (cough-breasts-cough) and sex appeal, instead of her accomplishments on the stage in the U.K.
Helen wasn't about to be dumbed-down to just some pretty face with an enviable bod, and she made that known.
Mirren, who was gearing up to play Lady Macbeth, was invited to appear on Michael Parkinson's talk show Parkinson to chat about her career, but things got off to an awkward start from the introduction, referring to the thesp as "a sex queen" and quoting a theater critic, who said Mirren, "is especially telling in projecting sluttish eroticism."
