Esteemed actress Helen Mirren was honored in Hollywood, CA yesterday in a special ceremony where she was asked to leave her hand and footprints in the cement in front of the world famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Not many actors are chosen for this honor so I think it speaks very highly of her status to be honored in this way. Check out some photos from this fun event below.
Helen Mirren has been immortalized in cement at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in LA. The Oscar-winning actress left her hand and foot prints outside the Hollywood landmark during a ceremony on Monday. She was introduced to the crowd by her Arthur co-star Russell Brand, who described her as an “empress, deity and God’s representative here on earth”. “There have been three real moments of triumph in my life,” said Mirren. “The first was being made a Dame of the British Empire, of which I’m enormously proud; the second was winning an Oscar; and the third is having my hands and feet in front of Grauman’s Chinese.” She went on to joke: “Yes, I am a Dame of the British Empire, but now I’m very proud to say that I’m one of the many dames on Hollywood Boulevard.” Mirren, who kept her high heels on when she stepped into the cement, was accompanied to the ceremony by her family.
This is fantastic. Helen Mirren is a true talent and I couldn’t be more elated that she has been honored in this way. Only the most legendary of Hollywood stars are asked to leave their hand and footprints in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater. She is just too fabulous. I understand that Helen is scheduled to host Saturday Night Live on April 9. Now that is an ep of the show that I simply will not miss. Let’s send all of our love and congrats to Helen on her latest accomplishment :D
