I hate it when I love someone everybody else loves. I feel like I’m just a boring, average, celebrity-obsessed dunderhead.
But I do love Helen Mirren.
Not just lately. I remember her in the 1970s (Oh, Lucky Man!), before long she hid out (from me) doing theatre in England, then popped up again in the 1990s. Ms. Mirren was great in The Madness of King George.
Since then she’s made a few flicks and TV shows.
And is a spokesperson for L’Oreal:
What she did a few days ago knocked me out:
Helen Mirren Praised For Sharing Makeup-Free Photo Taken Before Oscars Glam Squad Got To Work
“I’m not setting standards for others. All I can do is be who I am. I’ve always loved makeup,” she said, according to The Telegraph.
Did I get suckered into thinking she just ‘did it’ on Instagram – or was this a L’Oreal publicity stunt?
I don’t care. Love is unconditional.
