In Toronto for L’Oreal’s Women Of Worth event on Wednesday, Helen Mirren explained her unexpected laugh-out-loud Oscars moment. During the awards telecast, host Jimmy Kimmel promised a jet ski to whichever winner delivered the shortest speech. Unveiling the jet ski in true “The Price Is Right” fashion, a glamorous Mirren showed off the prize, later hopping on the back of the jet ski with the prize’s eventual winner, “Phantom Thread” costume designer Mark Bridges. The Oscar-winning actress reveals all Kimmel had to do was ask and she was in for the joke. “He said, ‘Helen would you do this? And I said ‘Yes’!” Mirren tells ET Canada’s Sangita Patel. “It was a couple of days before actually. But I thought, ‘how ridiculous, of course I’ll do that, it’s going to be so ridiculous.’ It was great, great fun, I can’t believe how effective it was.” “I didn’t come with the jet ski,” she jokes. “Yes, Helen Mirren is not included.” In addition to being a part of one of the night’s biggest jokes, Mirren says she was in awe of Jane Fonda as they presented the Best Actor nominees together. “I mean, obviously Jane Fonda has been very much a part of my life for my whole life actually, and someone who was a huge star when I really wasn’t,” she says of their time together on stage. “And someone who was extraordinarily out there and courageous and formidable in so many ways. To find myself on stage with her I was very… I felt inadequate actually.” Pictures from the L’Oreal event have been added to the photo gallery – and most of last week’s Oscar pictures have been replaced with better resolution, with many thanks to Claudia.

The Oscars have been handed out, and Helen Mirren made a surprise appearance at the ceremony – not as a presenter (she and Jane Fonda handed the Best Actor trophy to Gary Oldman) but as a presenter to a brand new jetski that was promised to the winner with the shortest speech. Pictures from the arrivals and the show have been added to the photo gallery with more to come. Edit: Lots of additional pictures have been added with many thanks to Ali, Claudia and Maria, your help has been very appreciated. Also, the Best Actor segment and an interview with ABC have been added to the video archive.
