Helen Mirren, the 68-year-old former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, portrayor of several English queens, star of Caligula, and noted hot-old-lady-body was honored as "woman of the year" by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding, a funnyish drama club. Being the comedic minds of the most famous university in America, they asked her to twerk. Being an actually amazing, hilarious lady who will continue to give millions of people funny down-there feelings well into her 70s, Dame Mirren responded.
I'm about to make some hasty pudding if she doesn't stop that.
Even more mind-blowing, it was not her first twerk. "I've tried in my bedroom in private in front of a mirror, very unsuccessfully. Absolutely humiliating to have to do it in public in front of a whole load of people."
Humiliating, Ms. Mirren? The only people who should be humiliated are 20-something pop stars who can't twerk half so well as a Shakespearean senior citizen. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a blu-ray of Caligula to rent.
