We ship it.
Helen Mirren was just one of the prestigious celebs honored at the ifp Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York on Monday night… but we think it’s safe to say she won in more ways than one.
After presenting her career tribute award, Robert De Niro went in for a full mouth-to-mouth kiss with the Brit after throwing in some jokes about her work in 2006’s The Queen!
Not to be outdone, Dame Helen immediately took the spotlight back with an adorable, expletive-filled rant about sleeping with the Queen of England, saying:
“I have to tell you a story about f*cking the queen.
When The Queen was first screened at Venice, I’d never seen it before, and neither had my husband Taylor [Hackford].
In the first scene I’m in the full regalia, and I turn and look at the camera and there’s silence in the cinema. And my husband lets out this huge laugh.
So I lean over to him and say, ‘Darling, do you think you’ll ever f*ck me again?’… Between you and me, he has!”
More like, dang Helen!
The night’s other big winner was undoubtedly Spotlight, which won for Best Feature, Best Screenplay, and Special Jury Ensemble… could this be a sign for Oscars contention?!
We think Helen and Rob need to exclusively present each others’ future awards from here on out.
