Helen Mirren always looks so beautiful and elegant, but we also love her playful personality.
The 69-year-old actress appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday, where she had a little fun with the host.
Jimmy wanted to find out if Helen, who has played the role of Queen Elizabeth, would still sound regal and “posh”.
Mirren admitted, “The queen has a terribly posh accent. But I don’t.”
Fallon asked if she was up for playing with helium-filled balloons and she was happy to oblige.
She said, “I haven’t done this since I was about 11.”
Fallon laughed stating, “Welcome to the Tonight Show!”
The actress said, “Yes, here’s the rude bit. Suck in”, before apologizing, “Oh sorry!”
Her balloon let out a squeak and she apologized as if she had farted.
Jimmy said, “That was me. That was me! It was the dog!”
She said, “Oh thank you! I am so honored – this is the most fantastic thing!’ I have to thank my whole crew and my husband, I love you darling very much.”
The actress looked stunning in an electric blue dress and matching heels.
Helen was on the late night show to promote her new movie Woman In Gold.
In the film, which had a premiere in New York Monday night, is about an elderly Holocaust survivor living in Los Angeles that fought the government of Austria for almost a decade to reclaim Gustav Klimt’s iconic painting of her aunt, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.
It had been confiscated from her relatives by the Nazis in Vienna just prior to World War II.
