Helen Mirren has split opinion regarding her twerking:

Do you think she is giving younger folks a run for their money, knows how to still have fun or has she gone a step too far?

(is it possible to do straight video links on here rather than FMs going to a linked page?)

Helen Mirren, - great actress, lovely lady. She's showing the youngsters
that oldies have fun too... or something like that.
So, why do I find Helen faintly irritating in recent years? Has it all gone to her head, just a little bit???
Or, am I just deeply jealous of her looks, figure, success???? confused

I think she's always been slightly irritating, and certainly never been afraid to put it all out there!

Great actress though.

Yes I do think she is a bit up herself but I didn't think this was that bad at least she was fully clothed which she hasn't always been! Did love prime Suspect - I think Hermione Norris is the better actress.

Your last line henetha did make me smile.

Until she hit the headlines as being the 'poster girl' for older women, I have to say I was largely unaware of her.

I didn't like to see her twerking but that has more to do with twerking which I think looks, erm, basic - another version of the slut drop ....

I'm not that interested in HM twerking, but if it helps to undermine the trend for children copying Rihanna and Miley doing it, then good for her.
