"There was Maggie Smith – seen one moment on film rolling a wine glass across her forehead as the affectedly sexy Myra in Coward’s Hay Fever, the next moment present in the flesh to deliver a speech from Farquhar’s The Beaux’ Stratagem with unadorned simplicity. And to see Judi Dench moving from Shakespeare’s Cleopatra to Sondheim’s Desiree in A Little Night Music was to receive an object lesson in the power of physical stillness and flawless articulation." (National theatre’s 50th birthday gala)

interviewer: One last question. Romance and food are at the heart of this movie among many other messages. If you were to live the rest of your life with good food or a good romance - and I’m being very polite there -, which would you choose?

Helen: Sex or food? ….is that what you’re asking me darling? Sex or food? I can… we can all live without sex. We cannot live without food. We die *pauses to let this info sink in*… without food. We don’t die without sex.

HELEN MIRREN HAS NO TIME FOR YOUR STUPID QUESTIONS AND SHE WILL SLAY YOU WITHOUT YOU EVEN NOTICING YOU IDIOT.

Many production pictures of Helen Mirren’s many theatre productions, ranging from 1963 to 1969, have been added to the Helen Mirren Archives (x)



So. Potentially, I could be heading for NYC in June.
