Yesterday, Helen Mirren was a special guest of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” – special, because she did the interview right out of her baththub. Besides promoting “Fast & Furious 9”, they talked about Helen confronting a black bear that was trying to sneak onto her porch and the rather familiar story of The Who’s Keith Moon crashing her dressing room during an intermission of 1975’s “Teeth ‘n’ Smiles”. The full segment can be watched below and in the video archive, screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

Sarah Cooper’s new comedy special on Netflix includes a skit in which she and Helen Mirren parody Donald Trump’s infamous Access Hollywood tape. In 2016, an Access Hollywood outtake from 2005 resurfaced, in which the future president boasted about his ability to sexually harass and assault women, saying: “Grab them by the p***y.” The show’s co-host Billy Bush could be heard laughing along. In the new Netflix special, Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine, Cooper offers an “exclusive look” at Trump and Bush’s conversation. The skit sees Cooper lip-sync the role of Trump, while Bush is played by Mirren. In a review for Vanity Fair, Yohana Desta said Mirren “gamely embodies the weaselly Bush, egging Trump on”. The LA Times’s Robert Lloyd, meanwhile, called the re-enactment “somehow even more disturbing than the real thing”. Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine is out now on Netflix.
