Helen Mirren turns 75 today (congratulations :-)) and The Guardian‘s Michael Billington has written a fantastic and most in-depth article to celebrate not only her birthday but her legacy: Who is Helen Mirren? Looking back over her career, as she hits 75, it is tempting to see her as two separate people. First, there was the outspoken young classical actor who fiercely resisted objectification, whether from newspapers (“Stratford’s very own sex queen” was a notorious Sunday Times headline) or TV chatshow hosts. Then came the mature Mirren with a gift for playing monarchs (Elizabeth I on TV, Elizabeth II on screen and stage), for picking up every award going, and for being a great dame associated with excellent causes. Among many, she is an ambassador for Women International. Yet I see no great gulf between the two Mirrens. Having followed her career for 50 years, several things strike me. One is that she has always been a dedicated, highly skilled actor. Another is that she is a perennial mix of the nomadic and the majestic: you don’t get to play Cleopatra, as she did for the National Youth Theatre when she was 20, without some inbuilt imperiousness. Indeed, one of my few brief encounters with her took place around that time, when I went to a party hosted by one of her Youth Theatre contemporaries. My abiding memory is of a self-possessed young woman who made many of the men at the party feel like boys (and I, for one, was five years older). Where does that confidence come from? You could argue that it is partly genetic. It is well-known that she was born Helen Mironoff and that her paternal grandfather was a Russian aristocrat who fought in the tsar’s army and who was negotiating an arms deal in Britain when he and his family were stranded by the 1917 revolution. The complete article can be read here.

We’ve been really blessed lately with Helen Mirren covers. The German edition of Vogue has put her on their front alongside Sharon Stone and Iris Berben in an issue dedicated to strong women during this difficult time: How to put into words what is indescribable? A few days ago – it feels like hours – many of us were in Los Angeles, Paris, Milan, London and Berlin for this edition. Business as usual. We went shoulder to shoulder in the editorial office to select images, discuss texts, discuss layouts and make plans. Of course, we followed the news from China, worried about friends and colleagues there. Hoped that everything will go well. The danger seemed so far away. We would like to dedicate this issue to these heroes. Because respectful courage is also – even if it is “only” about coping with personal crises and challenges – that unites the cover stars of this edition and makes them role models. Whether Sharon Stone, Helen Mirren or Iris Berben, the lives of these women show that no matter what your age, you can outgrow yourself. That it is never too late to raise your voice when something goes wrong. And: that hope and optimism must never die. Vogue’s May issue releases April 7 in Germany.

Helen Mirren couldn’t be busier right now as a L’Oreal Paris ambassador. Her appearance with Viola Davis last week to launch the Age Perfect Cosmetics line has attracted interviews in Allure, Grazia, Vanity Fair and People Magazine. Two new commercials with Helen and Viola have been released as well for the campaign. They have been added to the video archive, alongside some other “Age Perfect” commercials from 2019. And to celebrate the International Women’s Day, L’Oreal Paris and The Prince’s Trust have invited their ambassadors to tell what self-worth means to them and to celebrate the women in their lives who empower them in their moments of self-doubt in a new promotional video. All clips and screencaptures have been added to the archives. Have a look at the complete list below.
