Bio / Info
Born in Chiswick, London, Helen Mirren began her acting career with stately roles in William Shakespeare cinema adaptations, including A MIDSUMMER'S NIGHT DREAM. She later became well known as being the classy British actress who was willing to do nudity in her scenes and gained some more mainstream popularity in the States when she landed the role of Morgana in EXCALIBUR. During her earlier days as a young starlet her measurements were reported as being 36-25-36, which changed only by an inch in the waist and the hips by 1991 when she was 46 years old and appearing on the show "Prime Suspect." Mirren has been nominated for Academy Awards on 4 separate occasions and in 2007 won Best Actress for portraying Queen Elizabeth in THE QUEEN. She began dating her husband, actor Taylor Hackford in 1986 but didn't marry him until 1997 when she was 52 years old. Regarded as a "GILF" by many of her younger fans, Mirren in actuality does not have any children. In 2010, Helen took on the role as a madame in THE LOVE RANCH, 30 years after she played a prostitute in the movie HUSSY.
