Helen Mirren

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.

Dr. Ken, I believe Helen Mirren, is one of the world's great all-time actresses. If they ever made a remake of the movie "Roots of Heaven", I would like her to play Madame Orsini, the big game huntress. As you might know this woman was spanked in this delightful movie.

Well, well, well! I gave up the cookie-cutter talk shows a while back, so i didn't see that! Thanks for the heads up, Doc!

I have enjoyed Ms Mirren in lots of stuff--be sure to catch her as the Master's Mrs. in "Hitchcock!"-- and I'm glad to know she loves a jolly spanking once in a while. Funny she should pose like that at ComicCon!

Dr. Ken said...

sixofthebest -- I'm looking forward to her newest film, "The 100-foot Journey".

Dave Wolfe -- I've no idea what prompted that pose, but the minute I saw it, I knew it was the right picture for this post. :-)

Too funny! I last saw her in The Queen, but never thought of her as being into spanking. Thanks for sharing.

I am a long-time fan of this fabulous, sexy lady. I do believe she might be "one of us" in one way or another. I can see her delightful derriere being spanked but more likely I see her as the spanker of naughty boys and girls...

A jolly good spanking suits my style, and being turned over Ms. Mirren's knee would make me smile (for a while at least; I suspect she could deliver quite a good hide tanning).

Dr. Ken said...

Hermione -- Heaven only knows if she's "one of us" or not, but she did seem to smile after delivering the line. :-)

smuccatelli--I think she'd make a great switch!

J.D.--You may be right.
