Helen Mirren may be a dame but when it comes to her hair she doesn’t need any fancy treatment.
Appearing for an interview on “This Morning” on Friday, the 73-year-old Oscar winner revealed that she’s got no problem taking hairstyle matters into her own hands.
“I do often cut my own hair,” Mirren said.
Pointing to her ‘glam squad’ who helped her get ready for the interview, Mirren admitted, “I said to my brilliant hair guy here, Stefan, ‘The cut I have right now, Stefan, is something that I did with the kitchen scissors about a week ago in my kitchen.’
“So, you know, maybe you could clean it up a bit for me?” she told him.
Mirren also revealed that she prefers her looks with makeup.
“I don’t like the look of myself without makeup at all,” she said.
Speaking about beauty, Mirren said, “I have an issue with the word ‘beauty’. Because we’re not all beautiful, I’m not beautiful and I recognize that fact. Sometimes I clean up nice with a lot of help… So I want a new word instead of ‘beautiful’. I think ‘being’ is a good word.
“My ‘being’ tip is really to be curious and interested in other people. And not think too much about yourself. Give your attention to other people. And that has a way of making you, if you like, more beautiful in many ways.”
