Helen Mirren On Feminism In TV & Film: 'Things Have Changed Substantially'

Helen Mirren is opening up about the rise in opportunities for women in television and film over the last few years.

“Hugely. In the last 10 years — or really the last three or four years — things have changed substantially,” the 71-year-old Oscar winner expressed (via THR) while attending the 2017 Monte Carlo TV Festival on Tuesday (June 20) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

“There is a pressure mounting behind a dam, and I hope that that dam is finally bursting in terms of women directors and women-led dramas,” Helen added. “When I first did Prime Suspect they were not at all sure that a female-led drama would be acceptable to the public. So that’s how much things have changed since we first began Prime Suspect. It’s changed hugely.”

“The wall will continue to be hit for some time, absolutely. But I think there is a very substantial change in attitudes,” Helen concluded. “I think it’s becoming embarrassing to turn someone down because they’re female. The mind-set has changed. Unfortunately there are dinosaurs, and there are some dinosaurs that are 50 instead of 80. A lot of males over the age of 50 are locked in a past world really, and we just have to let them pass through the system and get them out the other end, if you like, for things to really change. That’s a very generalized statement, so maybe I should stop right there.”

50 Cent and co-star Omari Hardwick were also in attendance at the 2017 Monte Carlo TV Festival to represent their hit show Power.

Helen Mirren Hosts Stuttering Association Gala After Explaining Her Stance on Feminism

Helen Mirren brought a touch of gold to the 2017 Stuttering Association for the Young (SAY) Gala.

The 71-year-old actress hosted the event alongside fellow actress Kelli O’Hara (right) at NYU Skirball Center on Monday (May 22) in New York City.

Also in attendance was Krysta Rodriguez (left). The gala was held to honor film director Jeffrey Blitz and football coach Joe Moglia.

SAY is a national non-profit organization, “which through summer camp, speech therapy, and creative expression empowers, educates, and supports young people who stutter and the world that surrounds them.”

Helen has also recently voiced her support for another powerful issue – feminism.

“I didn’t define myself as a feminist until quite recently, but I had always lived like a feminist and believed in the obvious: that women were as capable and as energetic and as inspiring as men,” she told the crowd during her commencement speech at Tulane University over the weekend. “But to join a movement called feminism seemed too didactic, too political.”

Ryan Reynolds Reacts to Helen Mirren's Praise After Making Time's '100 Most Influential' List

Ryan Reynolds has landed a spot on Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list!

Now, the 40-year-old actor – whose hit film Deadpool just got a release date – is responding to Helen Mirren‘s heartfelt tribute to him, which was included in the publication.

“Can the name be real?” Helen wrote. “It is such a perfect movie-star name, like something that could be on a 40s marquee. How fitting, then, that Ryan Reynolds has the same loose-limbed charm as Carey Grant and Jimmy Stewart.”

“[He’s] kind, committed, generous, especially to women,” she went on. “He likes [women] in the most simple, direct, unadorned way: for their humanity (how very appropriate that he is the father of two girls).” (Read her full tribute here.)

Pictured: Ryan out and about on Saturday (April 22) in New York City.
