Helen Mirren made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday, Aug. 4th.
While on the show, she did a skit with Jimmy called, "Mirren, Mirren". It was a take-off of the magic mirror that appeared in the story "Snow White". If you remember, the Evil Queen would gaze into her mirror and recite, "Mirror, mirror, on the wall--who is the fairest of them all?" All was fine as long as the mirror told her that she was the fairest. When the mirror began reporting that a young lady named Snow White had taken over the title, the events that would dictate the rest of the story were set in motion.
In the Tonight Show skit, Jimmy Fallon, dressed as a court page, stood in front of his own image reflected in an ornate mirror, say, "Mirren, Mirrne....on the wall...." and then ask a question. The mirror would light up from within, revealing Helen Mirren, and she would answer his question in rhyme....which led to the following exchange:
Jimmy Fallon: Mirren, Mirren...on the wall.....what do you think of 50 Shades of Grey?
Helen Mirren: Well...whips and chains are not my style
But who doesn't love a jolly good spanking once in a while?
If you want to look it up for yourself, the skit occurs at approximately the 19 or 20 minute mark.
