Yesterday, Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren, Diane Lane and Michael Stuhlbarg have attended the New York premiere for “Trumbo” at the MoMa. Additionally, on November 1, Helen has attended the Shakespeare Theatre Gala honoring director Julie Taymor. As quoted by The Washington Post, “Julie is a great director and a great friend. That’s why I wanted to be here,” Mirren said in a brief pre-dinner interview. “She was the first woman to direct me, and that meant very much to me.” Really? The first woman? “Well,” Mirren said, “the first woman to direct me in anything of that scope. And as a woman director, she has faced great adversity.” Pictures from both events have been added to the photo gallery.
