If you don't know better than to interrupt Helen Mirren when she's ... well, doing anything, we wager you get what's coming to you.
A crew of drummers learned that lesson on Saturday when the actress stormed out of London's Gielgud Theatre to tell them to hush up - although she admits to the U.K.'s Telegraph that she used a few choice words to make her point.
The 67-year-old star had been on stage performing as Queen Elizabeth II in "The Audience" when the troupe of drummers, who were thumping away nearby to promote the "As One In the Park" gay music festival, became too loud to ignore.
It was during the production's intermission that Mirren, fully dressed in her regal costume, stepped outside to give the crowd their marching orders.
“I’m afraid there were a few 'thespian’ words used," Mirren told the Telegraph. "They got a very stern royal ticking off but I have to say they were very sweet and they stopped immediately. I felt rotten, but on the other hand they were destroying our performance so something had to be done."
Mirren said that at one point she and her co-star, Paul Ritter, could barely hear one another speak.
“I was so upset from struggling through the scene with Paul that I literally walked straight off stage, straight up the stairs and straight out the stage door and banged my way through the crowd who were watching and said 'Stop, you’ve got to stop right now,' only I might have used stronger language than that," "The Queen" star said. “They were very sweet and stopped the minute they knew I wasn’t just a batty old woman haranguing them on the streets of Soho on a Saturday night.”

Ad note; The Marquee Blog refers to the actual article, not to what we say after it. Sorry to pop your glory bubble.
Is that anything like a 'glory hole?' I like those.
Once again people like TFan mistake these nothing little comments for 'blogging'.
If I could be anyone else in the world besides the sniveling little pillow-biter that I am, it would be Helen Mirren. Close second is Liza Minnelli.

when your age becomes 46 or 47 it starts to changes...make sure you put the bag on with the mileage...(wink)

You can get some great deals on the ones with high mileage. Just make sure they're clean.

Got it. The 2-ply cinch sack.

times have changed...the tight ends are not as famous as they once were.
Yeah, you can score more with a wide receiver than you generally can with a tight end.
She does have some nice, juttin' jigglers for an older broad. I'd motorboat them.

Beautiful older woman you had too see her when she was younger she was fabulous and she's very interesting too talk speak with and a professional in the business...hands down.
The only time I'd even consider interrupts-ing Ms Mirren is coitus...
she did not say yes too g....however after church we could do the 4pm show.
Good to see that heterophobia is not strictly confined to the US. Sounds like she was well justified.
Helen Mirren showed her bare ( o )( o ) years ago in the movie Excalibur, and they were spectacular?

Jesus, I swear morning sh!ts smell worse than any other dump of the day. I wonder why that is?
you must have aggravated like you usually do gross
If your 'humor' is just stupid and vulgar, repeating it does not make it funny.
Your humor is still stupid and vulgar. And you are boring.
Perfect for you...it's a loose/loose.
...i am very picky....move along dear before we go "got it"
I was making an observation with a question, Pliny the Prude, and that was the first time I've made that particular comment. Tell me, oh wise puritanical one: why do YOU think morning bowel movements tend to be the smelliest?
is going too be so much fun...
You wouldn't call me a prude if you knew I like to take it in the poop chute...
sounds bribarian too me.
I took a dump this morning, and mixed in with the waste matter was a ribbed condom! Now how do you suppose it got there?
I suppose I should clarify that it was a USED condom...
you know this woman is georgous for her age. accomplished actress and still very beautiful ...
wonderful actress and a walking star
