Helen Mirren: Happy In Hawaii

Helen Mirren: Happy In Hawaii

The Queen star Helen Mirren takes a dip in the Pacific Ocean with her producer husband Taylor Hackford in Hawaii on Friday, November 28. The 63-year-old Oscar-winning actress showed off her enviable figure in a purple tankini as she went snorkeling.

Helen is currently filming a Shakespearean screen adaptation The Tempest on the islands. According to IMDB, in Julie Taymor‘s version of The Tempest, the gender of Prospero has been switched to Prospera. Going back to the 16th or 17th century, women practicing the magical arts of alchemy were often convicted of witchcraft. In Taymor‘s version, Prospera is usurped by her brother and sent off with her daughter on a ship. She ends up on an island; it’s a tabula rasa: no society, so the mother figure becomes a father figure to Miranda (Felicity Jones). This leads to the power struggle and balance between Caliban (Djimon Hounsou) and Prospera; a struggle not about brawn, but about intellect.

  • Hey jared! it’s me again!

    So nice to see pictures of people other than Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise!

  • LolaSvelt

    ^I agree. Helen Mirren is hotter than Katie Holmes, too!

  • zhnjg

    From one woman to another…great rack.

  • Angelina

    Um…her figure is not so enviable anymore. How did her body transform from those hot bikini shots to this frumpy mess in a short amount of time?!

  • imtvfan

    Love her!

    Because #6 Angelina, those bikini pictures were from the FRONT! No one’s body can be that perfect, unless they’ve had liposuction. You wish you’d look half as good as her when you will be her age.

    Her body didn’t transform. The earlier pictures were photoshopped.

    Never mind what she looks like. She’s in her 60′s and she’s a magnificent actress.

  • Ruth

    This amazingly talented actress looks great.

    As for previous pictures, nearly all the pictures that we see of actresses (young or not so young) are photoshopped and that includes great beauties like Kate Winslet and Angelina Jolie.

  • moo

    I agree she looks great and I love it that the paparazzi want to take photos of someone over 30 and/or someone besides Aniston or Tom Cruise.

  • g

    I can’t wait for The Tempest- that should be amazing.

  • Ericka

    Love her!

    She has such a nice body for her age.

  • Ericka

    This bathinsuit is all bad though…

    and those other pictures were photoshopped I think…her thighs were really smooth. I still think she looks great for her age though

  • Sunny

    Helen’s husband is DIRECTOR Taylor Hackford.

    We should all look so good at 63.

  • Mondo Bongo!

    So confident, love the flow, and talent that is Helen Mirren.

  • Here’s The Deal

    She’s a great actress, and for someone who’s 63, she looks fantastic.

  • palvasha

    women that age n in that shape should not dress this way. and that goes for the emn too!!! she would have looked much better in a nice one piece suit and a sarong and the man in t-shirt and shorts. soem modesty and demure makes a women more sexy that trashy and revealing.


    I think she looks awesome !!!! She can dress however she wants….The fact is, she is a wonderful and talented actress and from what I read, a very sweet and caring person…….I wish I were in Hawaii with her !!!

  • Jennifer

    #23! give me a freaking break! she’s supposed to go snorkling with a sarong on?! she’s at the beach not strolling the promenade and even if she was, she looks fabulous!!!

  • chris

    No wonder she has some many younger men lusting after her :)


    Helen looks great for ANY age!

    As for the photoshop rumors, COME ON! Photoshopping is VERY expensive – why would the photogs who took the bikini pictures even BOTHER to spend that kind of dough to make a celebrity look GOOD??

  • Olga Kurylenko topless

    I love Helen, wonderfull girl!!!

  • Madeline Zima Sexy Bikini

    Helen you are a star.

  • Manga, Naruto

    Love you my dear!!

  • Nancy Assaf

    I guess it’s because she’s famous, but it would be nice if she and her husband could have a nice outing in privacy without people taking pictures of her and commenting on how she looks.
