Helen Mirren is happy when Ellen tells her she's 72 not 73

13 January 2018

When Helen Mirren visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show recently, she thought she was a full year older than she really was. "I think that I am 73".

Helen Mirren has vowed never to play Queen Elizabeth II again because she doesn't want her career to be defined by the royal role.

But DeGeneres is confident in her findings and reassures the actress that she is, in fact, 72 years old.

Donald and Helen play a runaway couple in the movie, who go on a memorable journey in the Leisure Seeker, travelling from Boston to Key West's Ernest Hemingway Home.

When Ellen asked if she ever thought of retiring, Helen had no doubt.

The age-defying star completed her look with nude-coloured strap heels, a clutch bag and dangly earrings. I said: 'Minimal - the absolute least we can do.' Because sometimes a hair is sticking up or there's a shadow. "I was going to say you look great but you're losing it".

Ellen complimented her, saying: "You're not shy about saying your age, you're 72...' Helen interrupted saying, '73" as the audience clapped.

Waters slammed the president over the comments on MSNBC Saturday morning, saying that she doesn't "trust him or appreciate him". Maxine Waters (D-CA) made an appearance on MSNBC with host Joy Reid that was intense, even by the congresswoman's standards.

'Wow, when did you turn 73?

"I always knew from the get-go that I was only going to be doing two series so I'm just very very grateful that I have had such a wonderful time playing that part and making friends for life", she smiled. "So we both went, 'Oh, fantastic, we've got a whole extra year!' And now I've got another year".

Under that, she layered a black button up shirt sporting a white collar.

Her lone accessory was a small black leather purse that she carried in her left hand.

The actor sported a casual look and wore a blue suit with a black puffer vest and some running shoes.

Helen and Donald made an appearance at The View to discuss The Leisure Seeker and talk about the Time's Up movement at the 2018 Golden Globes.
