biggest mystery ever: how did she become famous at 65?

i didnt know who she was until about 10 years ago when she became a famous movie star in holywood at about 65.

this is a first as far as i know. the first time an actor has ever become famous at 65 or 55 or 45 years old or older.

so why did it take hollywood this long to make her a movie star?

She had a lead role in EXCALIBUR at the age of 35.

She's a late bloomer.

The First Movie that I ever saw Helen Mirren in was actually "2010".

Re: biggest mystery ever: how did she become famous at 65?

i just saw a trailer for that movie and noticed she's in it! which is amazing to me that all these years of knowing about this movie i never knew she was in it bc i never knew who she is until she became famous about 10 years ago.

it probably isn't that good of a movie bc i never heard any positive things about it and bc its' a sequel to one of the best movies ever made supposedly. it's hard to make a great movie out of a sequel to one of the best movies ever made.
