Helen Mirren (77) gives everything! The Brit won an Oscar in 2006 for her role in The Queen. Her acting qualities are beyond question. But not only that, but the use with which the “Calendar Girls” actress appears on the set is also extraordinary. The actress really wanted to do the stunts for her new film “Shazam 2” herself! With consequences: Helen suffered a fracture!
“I did some of my stunts myself. I broke my finger in the process,” revealed the 77-year-old during an appearance on “The Graham Norton Show”. But she dealt with the situation incredibly bravely and said nothing: “I wanted to be a real ‘stunty’,” Helen continued. The Oscar winner had been looking forward to the role and found it a challenge not to use a stunt double for the action scenes.
A few weeks ago, the film’s director, David F. Sandberg, recalled the coolness of the Golden Globes winner in an interview with Entertainment Weekly: “You have a certain expectation: ‘Oh, Dame Helen walks on the set!'” Yes after greeting the crew with a disreputable choice of words, he got a completely different picture of her: “On her first day, she said right away: ‘Yep! We need more pussy power here on the set! We [ Lucy Liu (54 ) and Helen ] are here now!’ and I was like, ‘Oh, okay!'”
