I'm not strong-willed, actually. I'm a complete pushover. I love to be told what to do.
Helen Mirren
Nothing is quite so emotional and passionate as what goes on inside of a family. People are driven to distraction by a father or a mother or a husband. Or a child.
Helen Mirren
People with Parkinson's are not some weird people on the edge of human experience.
Helen Mirren
I think every woman in our culture is a feminist. They may refuse to articulate it, but if you were to take any woman back 40 years and say, 'Is this a world you want to live in?' They would say, 'No.'
Helen Mirren
People often ask me whether I prefer theater or film, and the answer is that I prefer the one I'm not doing: The grass is always greener.
Helen Mirren
I don't get to play the same role over and over in different movies. The roles that I get to play are quite varied, which is great.
Helen Mirren
When I came into the acting profession, it was quite hierarchical. You didn't sit at the same table as the leading actor. Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud... these were very, very intimidating and powerful people.
Helen Mirren
Parkinson's is a slow but inevitable process. It's hard living with it on a daily basis. The difficulty facing people with it is that they never quite know 'Can I or can't I do this today?'
Helen Mirren
I love men that love women. Morgan Freeman, who I worked with on 'RED,' was very flattering to me. But he is flattering to all women. He is a woman-charmer.
Helen Mirren
I am not too keen on my nose, I don't like my knees, I hate my ankles, I am unsure about my behind, I don't like my legs at all. I am not too sure about my chin, my forehead is a bit dodgy. But, overall, I can live with it.
Helen Mirren
I was never a left-winger, actually. I was a pretend left-winger because it was more interesting than being a right-winger.
Helen Mirren
I couldn't handle the rules the Queen has to live by at all, and very few of us could. It's a golden cage, really. You're never alone in that role - you are always surrounded by security.
Helen Mirren
I don't like the word 'strong,' because a strong character is never an interesting character. A character is made interesting by their vulnerabilities and their weaknesses.
Helen Mirren
Two phrases I hate in reference to female characters are 'strong' and 'feisty.' They really annoy me. It's the most condescending thing. You say that about a three-year-old. It infantilises women.
Helen Mirren
The whole thing of clothes is insane. You can spend a dollar on a jacket in a thrift store. And you can spend a thousand dollars on a jacket in a shop. And if you saw those two jackets walking down the street, you probably wouldn't know which was which.
Helen Mirren
I have to say, without sounding like a total tosser, that everything I've learned in life, and that has taken me out of my natural interior life, has been with men. They exposed me to things that I wasn't aware of. I learned from all the guys.
Helen Mirren
It was never my intention to marry anybody. Economics are basically the only reason to get married, but I'm very glad I did it.
Helen Mirren
The great marriages are partnerships. It can't be a great marriage without being a partnership.
Helen Mirren
It'll be the Internet and piracy that will kill film. There's a philosophy that the Internet should be free, but the reality is that piracy will destroy the film industry and film as an art form because it's expensive to make a movie. Maybe you'll have funky little independent movies, and it'll go back and then start up again some other way.
Helen Mirren
I don't think it's good to try and change anyone. The trick and the mystery - of relationships and life in general - is to learn to live with the bits you don't like.
Helen Mirren
They're called 'action scenes' because they do the acting for you. You don't have to act in action scenes. The action does it all for you. It's great.
Helen Mirren
I've been working every year since I started acting, and I got many awards before I won the Oscar for 'The Queen.'
Helen Mirren
I do think it's well over-time to have a female Doctor Who. I think a gay, black female Doctor Who would be the best of all.
