Helen Mirren

Dame Helen oirren admits she was “terrified” about working with Russell Brand because of his bad boy reputation.

The 65-year-old oscar-winning actress stars with Russell in two new movies, ‘The Tempest’ and ‘Arthur’. During an appearance on TV, she said, “I’m a bit infatuated with him. But I was terrified because, you know, it’s Russell Brand! Like the bad boy of bad boys. And I’m not a bad girl, I’m a good girl. And when good girls meet bad boys, terrible things can happen – mostly to the good girls.”

Despite her primary concerns, Helen and Russell got along well on both sets and she sings nothing but praises for him.
