Earlier today, Helen Mirren attended the premiere for “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” in London – probably the best thing to do in London on a day like this. She was joined by her “Fast & Furious ” children Jason Statham and Vanessa Kirby, as well as the film’s enemy, Idris Elba. It’s Helen’s second appearance as gangstr mom Magdalene “Queeny” Shaw in the franchise – a third appearance is currently being filmed for the 9th installment of the series, which will be released next Summer. Pictures from the London premiere have been added to the photo gallery.

HBO has released a teaser trailer for the historical drama miniseries “Catherine the Great” which stars Helen Mirren in the title role as the 18th century monarch. The first glimpse of the upcoming limited series shows us Mirren as the legendary monarch, who was Empress of Russia from 1762 until 1796, making her the country’s longest-ruling female leader. The series will show us Catherine toward the end of her rule in the 18th century, when she begins a steamy relationship with Grigory Potemkin (Jason Clarke), a military leader. “When I was young I dreamed of freedom, I dreamed of breaking chains,” Catherine can be heard saying in the trailer. “But as you get older, your choices narrow. So instead I gave us an empire, but I knew exactly what I was doing… I will not share my throne with anyone.” The series arrives on HBO and Sky Atlantic this Fall.

Multi award winning actress, Dame, legend – Grazia’s Joely Walker sat down with the inimitable Helen Mirren to talk diversity, Instagram and the ‘anti-ageing’ lingo she wishes would kindly jog one…

It’s the final day of the 72nd Cannes Film Festival and in a suite in the Hotel Martinez (where the A-list flock annually), we’re setting up for the arrival of a bona fide British legend – an actress with over five decades experience, 70-plus films under her belt and one of the few Brits to ever scoop up the elusive Triple Crown of Acting (winning an Academy Award, Emmy Award and Tony Award). But to everyone’s surprise (because, in this industry, being fashionably late is wholly expected), L’Oreal Paris Ambassador Dame Helen Mirren arrives on time and with little kerfuffle – no entourage in tow scribbling down convoluted coffee orders, no bodyguards sweeping the styling rail. Instead, just one manager and a laid-back outfit – her hands slouched casually in the pockets of her black Adidas tracksuit bottoms. All-in-all, an oddly serene set up for one of the most iconic British women in film – a testament to her no-fuss, no-fluff attitude. Indeed, fluff is something Helen simply cannot abide, especially when it comes to the cosmetics industry and the way, for decades, women were addressed with scaremongering terminology like the outdated ‘anti-ageing’ rhetoric. ‘How can a product be “anti-ageing”?’ questions Helen. ‘That’s like saying I’m anti-sun, well the sun is going to rise, “Well no, I’m anti it.” But thankfully – with the likes of Helen and many others speaking up on the subject, as well as brands taking note of changing customer expectation – the lingo has shifted as part of a wider sea change in the sector. ‘All of these fences have been slowly broken down. And I think what L’Oreal [Paris] have done is they’ve truly embraced it. They’ve incorporated different ages and genders, they’ve incorporated race, they’ve incorporated disabilities. A diverse, realistic representation of people – an authentic selection of who we all are. It’s why I’m proud to be an Ambassador.’ The complete artice can be read over at Grazia UK.

Helen’s second installment in the Fast & Furious franchise – the Rock/Statham spin-off “Hobbs & Shaw” – will release theaters August 2. Her character’s name has received an add-on, the Shaw family matriarch is now known as Magdalene “Queeny” Shaw. There you go. Univeral Pictures is starting the film’s promotion this weekend with its Los Angeles premiere (which Helen didn’t attend) and a first batch of video clips, including an on-set interview with Helen and the b-roll, in which she is seen thanking director David Leitch after wrapping her scenes and demanding “more stunts” for the next time. As much as we know there will be a next time next year, when Helen will reprise her role in the ninth “Fast & Furious”. You can find both the b-roll and on-set interview below and in the video archive, as well as screencaptures in the photo gallery.
