Elle has just released the eight different covers for its Women in Hollywood issue. Although all the cover stars look stunning, including Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams, and Anna Kendrick, there was one cover that stole the show in our minds: Hellen Mirren’s. The 71-year-old looks like a badass wearing a Trademark trench coat and statement earrings. With 68-year-old Kathy Bates also nabbing a gorgeous cover of her own, it’s clear that Elle knows that beauty has no age limit. See the rest of the covers on Elle’s website.

Here comes a real treat for the archives. Helen Mirren’s career will always be related to The Queen, or several queens. After all, these performances have won her the triple crown of acting – an Emmy for “Elizabeth I.”, the Oscar for “The Queen” and, most recently, the Tony Award for “The Audience” – a fictional recount of The Queen’s meetings with the Prime Ministers during her reign. Stage performances are almost impossible to find, so it’s a wonderful exception to the rule that the National Theater has broadcast and streamed various performance in the past years, including “The Audience”. Over 1.000 screencaptures from the National Theater taping have been added to the photo gallery. Enjoy.
On Wednesday, Helen Mirren has attended a screening for the tv series “Versailles” in New York. She was joined by her nephew Simon, who is a co-writer on the BBC period drama. Pictures from the event can be found in the photo gallery.
Jason Clarke is moving in with Helen Mirren in the thriller Winchester. Mirren will play Sarah Winchester, the eccentric heiress to the Winchester Repeating Arms Company fortune, who spent her life constructing an enormous mansion, the famed Winchester Mystery House, complete with secret passages and trapdoors, in order to keep at bay what she thought were the angry spirits of the people killed by her family’s firearms. Clarke will play skeptical San Francisco psychiatrist Eric Price, who is sent to the home to evaluate Winchester’s mental health, only to discover she may have been right to be concerned. Predestination helmers Michael and Peter Spierig will direct Winchester from a screenplay they wrote with Tom Vaughan. Production will begin in March 2017, with filming taking place on location at the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California, and in Australia.
