Take a look in the gallery for a few HQ photos of Helen Mirren at The Renaissance Awards.
There’s no denying that Helen Mirren just keeps getting better with age. The 76-year-old star has achieved the Triple Crown of Acting, won numerous Academy Awards, Tony Awards, Emmy Awards, and more, and to top it off, she just walked the L’Oreal show in Paris.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Mirren opened up about everything that goes on behind the scenes to achieve the well-lived life we see in front of the camera. From getting in a 12-minute workout, to taking in every moment of life, the actress shared her five go-to tips for living your healthiest, happiest version of yourself.
Nourish your body
There’s no one-size-fits-all diet, but Mirren likes to approach eating as an opportunity to do what makes her body feel its best.
“Take control of your diet and find what makes you feel good,” she told Vogue. And while she acknowledges not everything she eats is nutritious, she exemplifies the importance of moderation. “I’m the first one at the fish and chips, but what you’re putting inside your body does influence how you feel about yourself, so start there.”
There’s no need to max out your credit card for an expensive gym membership. Mirren loves her 12-minute Canadian Air Force women’s exercise routines. The workouts have been popular since the early 1960s and were designed to complete without any gym equipment for the Royal Canadian Air Force pilots who were stationed in remote areas.
“It’s an exercise regime that starts from very low and easy, then if you follow it though, it can become quite difficult. I’ve never gotten past the second level, but it’s a nice little exercise program,” she said.
And more than what type of workout you practice, Mirren encourages just doing something and pushing through any roadblocks in your way.
“Nothing extreme, but you need to do it every day. That’s a great start, because it’s all to do with taking control of yourself,” she said. “I’m incredibly lazy and if I can avoid doing it, I will, but every now and then I pull myself back and do what I know works.”

Warner Bros. has officially announced the title of its upcoming Harry Potter quiz show. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses will be a four-part series, presented by Dame Helen Mirren.
The quiz show, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone, will award the winner the title of House Cup champion. To win, contestants will need to prove themselves the most knowledgeable about the Wizarding World across hundreds of trivia questions.
“Special guest surprises” are promised, hinting at actors from the film series, but the show will be fronted by Helen Mirren, one of Britain’s most famous actresses, and a surprising omission from the star-studded British cast of the Harry Potter movies. “I knew someday I’d get a Harry Potter role, and I’m so pleased to take part in the 20-year film celebration,” said Mirren in a press release. “The films inspired such enchantment and wonder for so many of us, and it will be such a treat to reignite that magic for the countless fans who continue to revel in this spellbinding world.”
The four-part show is due to be filmed later this month, and will premiere later this year on both Cartoon Network’s ACME Night and TBS. It will then be made available on HBO Max.
In what becomes the first hot package to be unveiled as part of the Toronto International Film Festival market, Oscar winners Morgan Freeman, Al Pacino, Helen Mirren, and Oscar nominee Danny DeVito are set to star in Sniff, a stylish reinvention of the film noir genre that will be directed by Oscar winner Taylor Hackford. Endeavor Content will launch worldwide sales at TIFF, with CAA Media Finance co-repping U.S. rights.
In the Tom Grey-scripted film, two residents die under suspicious circumstances in a high-end luxury retirement community. Retired detective Joe Mulwray (Freeman) is pulled back into the action by his former partner William Keys (DeVito), and they uncover a hidden underworld of sex, drugs and murder in the wealthy community controlled by kingpin Harvey Stride (Pacino), and his femme fatale enforcer, The Spider (Mirren). Sniff is an acronym for Senior Nursing Institute & Family Foundation.
Adam Goodman and Matt Skiena will produce through their Dichotomy Creative Group, along with Hackford through his Anvil Films production shingle. Grey will be executive producer.
“I have always been a big fan of film noir but haven’t really made one, though I did make Against All Odds,” said Hackford. “That was a remake of Out of the Past, which is one of the best film noirs ever. I didn’t want to make a shot for shot redo of that, but took it as inspiration. Adam and Matt Skiena sent me the script, over the transom to my agent, and I was delighted. First-time screenwriter who has amazing style and conceptually understands what makes film noir stick. The whole concept of setting a film noir in an upscale retirement community … these are proliferating all over the United States as the baby boomer generation gets to retirement. There’s a lot of money, and people want to live in a beautiful setting. Those are on the brochures, but what Tom Grey did was show what was lurking below the surface. I thought it was a brilliant idea and he understood the nature of good noir — the dark story, the incredibly twisted characters — and I thought he had a great handle. Adam and Matt said, ‘It’s yours if you want to run with it.’ I met the writer, Tom Grey, we clicked and worked on it together, him writing and me putting ideas in.
