In a video published yesterday, Helen Mirren sat down with Harper’s Bazaar UK to chat through her beauty bag (or “swagger bag”, as she calls it) and her mission to tackle ageism in partnership with L’Oréal Paris, with whom she’s worked with since 2014. “I think what we need to tackle ageism in general, in our society, is to see more and more women in the world of politics, in the world of professions – doctors, lawyers, teachers – in the world of education, in the world of sciences,” says Mirren. “And not a 25-year-old woman, a 55- or 65-year-old woman. That’s what we need. We need those faces of authority, of success. There are many of them out there.” And whatever you do, don’t tell ever tell a woman she “looks good for her age”, she warns. “It’s patronising, it’s insulting, we hate that comment.” The video can be watched in the video archive, with screencaptures and a promotional still added to the photo gallery as well.
