All Hail the Queen




It's rare that I post this sort of thing, but I've been in love with Helen Mirren for years -- and to be honest, she's only gotten better with age.

Seriously, the woman is gorgeous -- even at 63, for God's sake -- and this picture just proves it.

There. If Queen Morgana's Charm of Making doesn't dispel this powerful and frightening delusion of sight and intellect, I don't know what will.

Ah, still chasing down 15 year olds I see. And what do you think you look like these days?

Wow...just, wow. Glad to see my crush on Helen Mirren isn't an unnatural thing exclusive only to me.

Captain Babypants said...

I hope I look half as fabulous at 63.

James said...

Yup, I thought the same. Absolutely gorgeous and unshopped too, I understand

Jayne said...

I just adore this woman. She looks incredible! God save the queen, no?

There's no accounting for taste, but I find myself sympathetic to Votar here. I'll admit that I wouldn't impress anyone either, but like herbal blends, Ms. Mirren, is not my cup of tea. GREAT actress though; love her daring role choices from "Caligula" (horrible movie) through "The Cook, the Thief, etc.". And not that you should care, but my long time crush concerning English actresses has always been Emma Thompson.

I'm in my forties and wish I looked that good now. She's gorgeous and smart and a damn fine actress.

All that and NO plastic surgeries

Chez, you once again prove you're a class act!

I'm 36 and I'd kill for just a tenth of her beauty and talent!

Julie said...

JEEEsus. She's stunning.

VOTAR said...

You know in 12 Monkeys when Cole goes back to the wrong time and they put him in the kookoo asylum.

It's pretty much exactly like that.

Chez said...

You're a fucking dingbat, dude. She looks stellar. Plus, she's 20 years older than you and she still wouldn't do you.

Tu sabes yo te quiero (but apparently, I'm the only one).

VOTAR said...

Muchach...

I missed the part of this post that was about how much more amazing (geriatric fetish) sex you are having with Helen Mirren than me. If that is indeed any measure of superiority, I willingly abdicate the field of battle, sir!

I say, LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE.

Chez said...

Hey, listen to that.

Hear that?

It's silence.

Know what that is?

That's the sound of every one of those girls ignoring your 42 year old ass.

I love you dude, but holy shit are you a cliche.

Now this is getting good. Your turn, Votar....

Al said...

Votar....bud....

Option A - all the hot mama, none of the drama.

Simple as that. ;)

Boo said...

It's not really geriatric fetish sex if the person doesn't embody geriatric, I would think.

She's fucking gorgeous.

I wonder if the carpet matches the drapes. Because I like to think about her completely naked.

VOTAR said...

Okay. Once gain, for those of you who arrived to class late. This isn't about the likelihood of being sought after by either Helen Mirren, or a college girl. It isn't about anyone's sexual or social prowess (I'm doing just fine these days, and you?), unrequited or not. It isn't about you or me.

Helen Mirren is an old woman, and looks alright for an old woman, I guess. And I'm sure she's a lovely person. I'm simply not going to apologize for sharing the very common male preference for youthful, attractive women. This doesn't make me a cliche, it makes me normal. At any age.

Tu sabes te quiero tambien, but it is uncharacteristically naive and disingenuous to try to refute the fact that youthfulness is attractive.

Enough for now. I have WORK to do...

toddono said...

I'm with you on this one Chez, I've had a thing for her since Excalibur...

Chez said...

So that's what you call masturbating to Bang Bus videos these days?

Chez said...

And incidentally, the issue my dear Votar is that you, a well-into-middle-age man, like these teen Girls Gone Wild tarts to the exclusion of all else.

I'll let someone else call it sad, since I'm not gonna.

Nothin' but love.

sanna said...

I think Helen Mirren deserves her own religion.

trish said...

Votar, your problem is that you don't seem to be able to see ANYTHING but the most superficial qualities that might make a woman beautiful. Yes youth is attractive, but there are qualities about older women, PHYSICAL QUALITIES, that in many ways can make them even MORE attractive. This is especially true for Helen Mirren. It amazes me that you might have liked her when she was young (since Chez claims you're in your 40s) but now that she's matured you think she doesn't measure up anymore. That's an incredibly shallow way of thinking, and I'll bet that whether you choose to accept this or not it's made you a miserable person.

I'm 26 by the way, just so you don't dismiss my comment as that of some bitter older woman who's just standing up for her own kind.

Chez said...

Trish FTW.

Chez said...

Dude, remember Cliff Poncier's taste in women in Singles?

Remember how it was held up for ridicule?

Steve said...

Wow. She looks amazing.

But there's a certain point where a woman appears as a maternal figure to me, and in spite of the hot bod, the resulting feeling just doesn't work for me. Sexually.

It's relative, not absolute though -- If I were single, I'd be interested in women my age plus 10 years or minus 15. That makes it 33 to 58, for what it's worth.

Give or take.

Stephen said...

I always thought she and Roy Scheider were gonna make it in 2010.

Stupid HAL 9000

I was JUST telling my mother last week how beautiful Helen Mirren still is. Amazing!

I better start taking my 30 year old ass to the gym. GEEZ!!! Eat your hearts out, Lindsay, Paris, Nicole, etc. This woman is a perfect blend of intelligence and classic beauty. You all have nothing (and I repeat) NOTHING on her. WOW!

Anonymous said...

Well, at 27 I wish I looked like her now. Forget those college girls though. They're all plastic and smell of skank.

QueBarbara said...

And for bonus points, she totally kicks Madonna's ass, without even breaking a sweat.

Yes quebarbara you are SO right about that one!
