MC: Helen Mirren took Hollywood by storm when she took on an Emmy award, two golden globes and an academy awards all in one year. The international super star keeps on the challenges of playing two Briton’s most iconic figures, ElizabethⅠand ElizabethⅡ, and now this 62 years old is taking on the past again, telling her own life story. Helen Mirren’s book is in the frame my life in words and pictures.

 

MC: Good morning to you.

 

 Helen: Good morning.

 

MC: And I have to say, for a start, I learnt the book right away, Helen Mirren is not your real name.

 

Helen: Well, actually, it is real my name, but you know, when I was born with the name of Mironov, so officially I got out Mironov, because my father was born in Russia.

 

MC: Which I did realize your paternal side, your grandfather, actually, within the military during the Czar. He came to England to put the arms and leave, Russian Revolution broke out.

 

Helen: Absolutely.

 

MC: He suddenly was the refugee, so your dad was born in England.

 

Helen: Yes. My dad was born in Russia.

 

MC: Was already born in Russia?

 

Helen: He was born in Russia, but he came at the age of 2 or 3 with my grandparents to England, so absolutely I am half Russian. I would say it is my bottom of Russia.

 

MC: Why the bottom half?

 

 Helen: You know, the good old Russian peasants stopped down there, somewhere.

 

MC: Talk to me about your childhood , because your dad was a cab driver, and your mum was sort of reluctant home-maker who wanted more for her girls.

 

Helen: Yes, my mum was a very early feminist, I guess. You know, the issue of marriage never came in up in our family. You know, oh, do not worry, darling, you will get married and a man will take care of you. That was never promoted as a sort of life choice. Our life choice was always you must make your own money, you must have your own money, you must be economically independent of anyone, and where my mum got that from, I do not know, but I dont think she is reluctant mum. She is a great mum. She was funny. You know, she cooked few things. She did not get up in the morning, but she was a great mother. But I do not think she really, really wanted to be a mother. I think a lot of women do not attach to her.

 

MC: So where did your love of acting come from?

 

Helen: I do not know. I mean, I think a perfect combination of my parents, my certainly one of my ancestors in Russia starting once of the earliest theater in Russia, it was the serf theater on their state. It was sort of like 300 years ago. So I have starting on my father side, on my mother side, she was just the huge drama queen. So, you know----

 

MC: You write your book even now that the relationship with the audience is ambivalent, I am vaguely embarrassed by the idea of being looked at .

 

Helen: Yes, yes. Actually, not all that being looked at at all, the act is sort of disappearing to something. And I think that is sort of the case .
