When Dame Helen Mirren learned she’d been chosen as the cover star of PEOPLE’s 2022 Beautiful Issue, “I was absolutely sort of gobstruck, as we say in England. I never considered myself ‘beautiful.’ And at my age! So I was amazed,” she says. It’s not a false play at modesty, she makes clear: “Don’t get me wrong – I love beauty and I love looking at beautiful things. But I don’t like the word beauty as it’s associated with the beauty industry – makeup and products, skincare and all the rest of it — because I think it excludes the vast majority of us who are not beautiful.” You can read the whole article over at People Magazine‘s website. Scans and a lenghty video interview conducted during the shoot can be found below.
