Helen Mirren : Did she really say this?

Did she really say this?

I read on the LOSING CHASE board somebody mentioned that Dame Helen Mirren said that she would never kiss another woman in a movie unless she absolutely had to. Did she really say that? If so, does anyone know the source?

Here's the thread in which the user mentions this:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116920/board/nest/7815887?d=77766902#77766902

Of late, I have read things she said that didn't please me much. It only goes to prove that sometimes, or even most of the t 5b4 ime, it's better to enjoy an actors work and just not try to find out too much about them, lest they not live up to the characters they play that we love.

For example, in one of her interviews, she claims to not like chick flicks. Well, my favorite film of hers would qualify as one, so that disappointed me big time. There goes my fantasy of enjoying a movie night with Helen Mirren, ha ha!

In another interview, she said she doesn't believe in God but is very spiritual. Those two statements seem incongruent to me. God is the ultimate spirit. But I digress…

From what I gather, Helen Mirren is a realist and a skeptic. She's also an ultra-feminist, who was quoted as saying that her interview with Parkinson in 1975 was "enraging" – just because he quoted an interviewer who said she was "sluttishly erotic" – but again, those were not his words that he was giving during the interview. So, that ought to make a difference.

Anyway, getting back to my original question – does anybody know of she really said she would never kissed a woman what she had to? I hope this isn't true! Because she's so good in LOSING CHASE, that I would hope that if she ever met someone like Elizabeth, she wouldn't mind going there, if you know what I mean.

Kissing isn't always a "sexual entity" -- whatever the *beep* that's supposed to mean.

Kissing is a simple greeting in many cultures.

No, we don't all wish to go there, like it's some kind of game. Why do you wish to deep-kiss her?
Sounds like you've never seen the LOSING CHASE movie, or if you have, you totally forgot what a hot scene was in it. Here's a link to the movie---which will start at around the 1:12 minute mark---the scene I refer to will start soon after:

Watch for a couple of minutes---or even more. It will answer your question of why I'd like to be the Elizabeth character---except my ending would have been different.

It's okay, we're on good terms. I know you and he haven't gotten along, and I'm sorry about that, because online conflict can be very frustrating. But, I don't think he's a troll exactly, just very opinionated and sort of on the outskirts of popular opinion. So, we might have to tread carefully around each other sometimes, but that's alright :-)

Thanks for your reply!

It's been nice talking to you; you're very reasonable.
Thank you – I try 😃
It was nice chatting with you as well.

As for the other poster – I think I know how he feels, being so defensive of Helen Mirren. I'm not really that way about any star anymore. I can just talk about any of them as though they are characters in a novel, without taking any of it very personally. But, I used to have a favorite I was totally in love with too – much like Doom is with Helen, so I kind of get where he's coming from – it's from a place of love, even if it is one-sided.

But at the same time, I know that the people who may not share the same level of interest in her may come here bewildered and look to strike up a conversation just to see what all the fascination is about, like you have done (Which is not the same as trolling, in my opinion, because it's a genuine interest in discussion – even if opinions are different). I do that myself from time to time. It's all good :-)

Re: Did she really say this?

hello, mytvmivieromance. i respect you and because of that, i will talk to you because you are a civilized poster and very reasonable and educated. i cant say the same thing about the other poster, you know.
im a huge fan of helen and i love her. i know her personally and sheisnt only a great and talented actress, but also a very intelligent, funny, kind, classy and sweet woman. i can tolerate the critizisms against her because its valid all the way. you cant be liked be all the people. but what i cant tolerate its the personal ofense and the trolling. and that is what the other poster usually does every time. he has something personal against her and he bash and insult her whatever the thing she does. that is not simply critizm. that is trolling.

but ill try to be educated and polite and reasonable as i can even with that poster. even knowing that he will bash helen withuoth reason. ill try to control my love and admiration for helen. thats all.
nice to talk with you, mytvromance.
