Helen Mirren, who is running just ahead of Megan Fox in Esquire's 'sexiest woman alive" poll (that might have something to do with the average age of Esquire readers, but I say not), said she was "gobsmacked" by her frontrunner status. She told Esquire "Sometimes the veterans have a way of surprising you - think Brett Favre."
When she was asked if it was her free-throw percentage that had gotten her this far, she said, "It is more the fouls that I have gotten away with."
Oh, Dame Helen. We just might change your title to Grande Dame Helen.
Mirren + Favre = old and at the top of their games.
