i have met this woman, (she's friends with my parents), and as cool as she seems, she's a million times cooler in real life. one time, i was at a party with her, and she looked incredible wearing a white button down shirt and this fantastic pink silk shantung skirt. when i asked her about the skirt, she said, "oh, it's a piece of fabric that i safety pinned together." she also has a tattoo on her hand that she claims she made herself in the 60's. basically, hellen mirren has a prison tat on her hand. oh, and at the emmys, when she up up to accept her award, she lifted her skirt to climb the stairs and got a little laugh cause she was clearly wearing lucite stripper shoes from hollywood boulevard.
