Helen Mirren is a total legend and an absolute queen, so there’s no surprise that she was honoured by Harvard University with their annual Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year award. The prestigious prize is given by the undergraduate theatre group to an actress who’s made a “lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment”.
Here’s what she said upon accepting the award:
“How very saucy of the Hasty Pudding organization to offer me their award.
“As someone who adores pudding in all its manifestations – suet, Christmas, treacle, bread and butter, Yorkshire, plum, figgy, etc – I am so looking forward to the famous Hasty Pudding.”
Ha! Then of course some jackass asked her to twerk, and she said she’d been practicing at home but that it wasn’t very good… before bending over and doing it! Ha. She also revealed that Harrison Ford was the hottest man she’s ever worked with and that Meryl Streep would win if they ever fought. Doesn’t Meryl Streep win everything ever?
In any case, I think we can all agree that if we end up like Helen Mirren at 68, we’ll be golden.
