Dame Helen Mirren loves her a FEISTY LADY!

The legendary actress has praised what she terms “shameless women” who are redefining beauty, citing Pussy Riot and Kim Kardashian as role models who have rejected labels such as slut and embraced bigger body shapes. And yeah, I agree- though it’s weird to wrap my head around Pussy Riot and Kim K being in the same “activist” category. HELEN, EXPLAIN!

The Oscar-winning actor said women had been pressured into conforming to demure stereotypes throughout the 20th century, but many contemporary celebrities took pleasure in breaking taboos.

“When I was growing up, it was thought to be unbelievably sluttish to even have a bra strap showing,” Mirren said. “Everything was about women conforming. I love shameless women. Shameless and proud!”

Mirren, 70, said she was happy to be finally “relieved of the whole sex-symbol tag” but was inspired by women who had not been “controlled by being shamed”.

“I love women who have claimed their own bodies: Madonna, Chrissie Hynde, Joan Jett, Bonnie Raitt. I love Pussy Riot more than anything in the world.

“They all raise their middle fingers to this epithet of ‘slut’. They wear what they want to wear, behave as they want to behave.’”

Mirren said the reality TV star’s famous backside had been positive for young women and body confidence.

“I’m not into the Kardashians, it’s a phenomenon I just don’t find interesting, but – and this is the big word: B-U-T-T – it’s wonderful that you’re allowed to have a butt nowadays,” she told the Sunday Telegraph Magazine.

“Thanks to Madame Kardashian, and before her, J-Lo. We’re also allowed to have thighs now, which is great too. It’s very positive.”

Mirren is the second high-profile Brit to praise Kardashian in recent weeks, after former Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman said the Kardashian women’s message was that “they are kind of going to make their own decisions, make their own way in the world”.

“There’s a kind of bravery and a pioneering – oh my God, what am I saying here? – a pioneering spirit to them,” Harman said.

I KNOW. WHAT IS EVERYBODY SAYING? Again, I think there’s some truth to it, but man, it’s weird to hear such respected women showing sincere reverence for the botox-y, reality-tv peddling, lycra-wearing Kardashi-klan. Such is the world we live in?

Helen Mirren Opposes Men Putting Their Arms Around Women. WHY?

Helen Mirren is my feminist dream queen!

Following up on previous comments about sexism in the film industry by Emma Thompson, Helen made a controversial remark, saying that she thinks it’s “sexist” for men to put their arms around their girlfriends, as it suggests ownership over the female.

VERY interesting. She said:

“It annoys me when I see men with an arm slung around their girlfriend’s shoulders. It’s like ownership. Of course, when you’re young, you want the guy to take your hand and look after you.”

The 70-year-old added:

“When I see girls being leaned on, I want to say, ‘Tell him to get his damned arm off your shoulder’.”

Helen, your words impress me. But do I entirely agree? Hard to say. It’s AWFULLY warm in the arms of my hot, hot boyfriend.

What do YOU think of her statement?

OMG how much do you love Helen Mirren!

Helen has finally been given a Hasty Pudding Award for Woman of the Year by Harvard. The award ceremony looks like it’s so much fun! During this year’s ceremony, Helen was asked to play a game of charades, and one of the cards held up read TWERKING. She tried to get away with using her hands to form the letter “T” and mimic “working.” It didn’t work.

After realizing she was going to have to actually TWERK, she DID, and the result is hilarious!

Love her!
