A little bit of everything has been added to the photo gallery this morning, from recent magazine covers to theatre pictures from the 60s! But in order: Helen graces the cover of the May 2018 issue of Woman & Home in the United Kingdom, which is on newsstands now. She has also been featured in the April 2018 issue of the Australian Mindfood magazine and in the March 2018 issue of Sweden’s Sondag magazine. A couple of fantastic additional editorial pictures have been added, as well as two teriffic finds of Helen’s very first steps on the stage. In 1965, after a well received debut as Cleopatra with the National Youth Theatre, Helen transmitted to Manchester’s Century Theatre and played her first professional roles under the direction of Braham Murray – in O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” and in Michael Meyer’s “The Ortolan”. Pictures from both plays have been added to the photo gallery. Enjoy your weekend!

The award-winning actors who last starred on Broadway’s “Dance of Death” in 2001, have been cast the film adaptation of Nicholas Searle’s novel. The thriller will be directed by Bill Condon and produced by New Line Cinema. The film reunites actor Ian McKellen with director Condon: their collaboration in 1998, on the period piece Gods and Monsters, earned each of them an Oscar nomination. They worked together again in 2015 on Mr. Holmes. (Condon most recently helmed Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast.) The Good Liar features con artist Roy Courtnay (played by McKellen), who meets a well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (played by Helen Mirren) online. Roy finds himself genuinely caring about her, which hampers his intention of a straightforward swindle. New Line acquired rights to the book two years ago, just after Searle’s debut was published in the U.S. by HarperCollins. Searle worked on his novel during a six-month online writing course in July 2014; the novel was finished and published in early 2016. Jeffrey Hatcher wrote the adapted script; Greg Yolen and Condon are producing.

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.
