In a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, Mirren shared her dream role:
My great ambition is to be in a Fast And Furious movie. I so want to be a mad driver in a Fast And Furious movie. My claim to fame is I always do my own driving—I was on Top Gear, and I did [my lap] in a very good time. I keep putting it out there, and they never ask me. I [would] be in Fast And Furious 8. I have to say Vin Diesel is brilliant. I love Vin Diesel. He’s a great guy, smart—I love him. It’s partly because of him I’d like to be in one, but also the driving.
Jimmy Fallon: Are you in an argument; are you pointing at her?
HM: It’s terrible! You know, as soon as I got home my husband saw this photo (cause I guess it was on the internet), and he said “What were you saying?” and I could not remember. It was already gone. It looks like I’m sayin “You naughty Queen! You should be wearing your crown! Why aren’t you wearing your crown? Where is it?!” She’s going “I’m so sorry Helen, I forgot my crown.”
Helena Bonham Carter. I love her individuality and her personality. She has been totally consistent in her eccentricity and creativity in terms of clothing, and I think that’s the right way to approach dressing. I’m not saying Helena doesn’t look beautiful; she does. But looking beautiful is not the be-all and end-all of the whole process with her – being interesting, looking fun and comfortable are more important.
