Dame Helen Mirren Twerks. Enough Said.


Helen Mirren at the 66th Annual Directors Guild Of America AwardsHow did this esteemed, classy, English Rose end up twerking for the cameras, you ask?

It all went down at Harvard University when Helen was honored with the 2014 Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year Award.

As part of the ceremony, the undergraduate drama troupe paraded the actress through Harvard Square — that’s called the Pudding Parade — and then presented her with a Pudding Pot during her roast which is where the twerking happened.

Helen admitted that she’d tried twerking before.

“I’ve tried in my bedroom in private, in front of the mirror, very unsuccessfully, so absolutely humiliating to have to do it in public in front of a whole load of people,” she said. “But I obviously couldn’t get out of it, it was inevitable end to the whole proceedings.”

She also revealed to the crowd that Harrison Ford was the hottest actor she’d ever worked with, that she’s a huge Beyoncé fan, and that if she and Meryl Streep were ever to brawl, we shouldn’t put our money on her.

“Meryl would win definitely,” she insisted. “She’s bigger, stronger and mentally stronger than I am.”
