If we know one thing about Helen Mirren, it’s that she’s not afraid to speak her mind.
Everything from fashion, to feminism, and especially the currently murky realm of politics, is on the table for Mirren, who recently opened up to Allure for a cover story.
In the interview, where she explores her life outlooks, and views on ageing, Mirren was questioned about First Lady Melania Trump, and First Daughter Ivanka Trump — and she didn’t hold back.
Speaking about the now-viral clip of Melania (seemingly) slapping away Donald Trump’s hand whilst on a tour of Israel, Mirren said: “You look at old Mel there, and she is one of the most powerful women in the world because she could take him down.”
“She almost did that with the hand. [She mimics Trump] ‘Don’t touch me.’ ””I’m Eastern European, you know; [we’ve] got these dark souls,” she told the publication. “That dark Slovenian soul is about to come out.”
Turning her sharp tongue to Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, whose recently released book ‘Women Who Work’, has been the subject of some harsh criticism, Mirren was equally as unforgiving.
“[Ivanka] talks a good game, but there’s no substance. Her book is so ignorant about how the majority of women live, talking about ‘Make time for yourself to have a massage.’ Puh-lease.”
As for the common denominator, President Trump himself, Mirren has already made her thoughts on him clear: “There are a few old dinosaurs left, and I think Mr. Trump is one of them.”
Mirren also noted Trump has an “enormous body” and a “small head”.
