Russell Brand bowled over by Helen Mirren’s allure
HollywoodNews.com: Russell Brand thinks Helen Mirren is drop-dead sexy and, boy, does he know why.
The actor stars alongside the Oscar winning actress in two upcoming films, this December’s Julie Taymor take on William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” and the remake of 1980s romantic comedy “Arthur.”
Per Brand, Mirren can play both seductress and distinguished royal.
Talking to People, Brand exclaims, “Confidence. Potency. Female energy. Roaring estrogen… She’s got that potency doesn’t she?
“That’s why she can play queens and leaders.”
Brand also thinks that Mirren is the quintessential example of all that is powerful and cosmic in a woman.
“Women are, of course, powerful, feral creatures – the Earth being so female, the cosmos, even, perhaps being a female instinct, creating life,” he said.
“If women get in tune to that energy, it’ll destroy us all.”
“The Tempest” bows on December 10.
