Quotes – Helen Mirren

‎”I resent in my life the survival of some very mediocre male actors and the professional demise of some very brilliant female ones. However, with all due respect to you many brilliant and successful women in this room… really not too much has changed in the canon of Hollywood filmmaking that continues to worship at the altar of the 18- to 25-year-old male and his penis. Quite small, I always think.” – Helen Mirren while accepting her Sherry Lansing Leadership award at the Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment breakfast.

“I’m not beautiful; I clean up nice. Why don’t we talk about the fact, for example, that I just did ‘Arthur,’ and the cinematographer was a woman, the film operator was a woman, the whole camera team were women? That’s where we should be putting our attention. The fact that I look good at the age I am is bloody irrelevant.” -Hellen Mirren on the same night
