Helen Mirren may be playing Alfred Hitchcock's wife in the new biopic Hitchcock, but she says that would never have happened in real life!
"When I was a very young actress, just starting out, I was sent for an audition - or a meeting with him.
I don't think he would have auditioned me; I think he either thought you looked right or you didn't. I was arrogant and ignorant and, at that time, he was just not my kind of film director…
So, I didn't really like him, and I know he didn't like me very much. He certainly didn't cast me. He took one look at me and went, 'Oh, good God. She's going to be a nightmare…'
I didn't want to do it because all those roles were horrible anyway."
Ooh, burn, Hitchcock!
We guess we know what Helen would have done if the director had actually asked her to marry him. She would have given him The Birds! LOLz!
