Helen Mirren is the cover star of Allure’s September issue, featuring a stunning new editorial by Scott Rindle. The article, by Allure’s editor-in-chief Michelle Lee, can be read in its entirety on their website. It’s a great read, especially because by tomorrow every media outlet will report on Mirren’s “Trump-bashing”, which isn’t happening, if you still believe in voicing an opinion and bashing a person are two separate things. Here’s a short excerpt from the wonderful interview, pictures can be found below: Not only in her career but also in life, the woman’s got range. She’s the blueprint for every Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone who came after her, proving that you can be outspoken yet respected by so many disparate groups if you stay wholly true to yourself. During our morning together, I learn that Mirren is a fan of condiments (her scrambled eggs get ketchup and Tabasco). She’s a self-professed terrible procrastinator. She loves to sleep late. She’s a generous conversationalist who asks copious questions. Her perfect day consists of a long family barbecue in New York, then England, then Los Angeles, and ideally she’d have a teleportation machine.
