Helen Mirren for ALLURE Magazine : Good-Bye Ageism

Helen Mirren is the September cover girl of ALLURE magazine and she’s got a thing or two to say!

Mirren has always been outspoken gorgeous and a world-class actress.In this special issue, which slams aging and ageism, Mirren speaks her mind on a few subjects.

On Ivanka Trump’s book:
“[Ivanka] talks a good game, but there’s no substance. Her book is so ignorant about how the majority of women live, talking about ‘Make time for yourself to have a massage.’ Puh-lease.”

Her thoughts on feminism:
“I wasn’t into the very didactic feminism of the ’60s and ’70s because I liked wearing makeup and high heels,” she recalls. “That was a no-no. It was sort of ‘That’s playing to the patriarchy.’ I was thinking, Well, I just really like it. Then as feminism developed, they realized you can like nice dresses, high-heeled shoes, and makeup. That’s not stopping you from being feminist.”

On being seen as sexy, but remaining humble:

“I could see why — when I got far enough back from my young self — they called me sexy in those days. I fell into the cliché of sexiness: blonde hair, tits, waist, which I hated at the time because it was not fashionable. You had to be thin and have a cigarette and only wear black. And I just never fit into that look.”
