There is nothing like this Dame, as in Helen Mirren, of course. She is the Oscar/Emmy/Tony-and everything else-winning acting icon who never seems to slow down. Now, with the Yellowstone prequel, 1923, she has also done her first western, and signed up for a second season as well. She visits my Deadline video series, The Actor’s Side, this week, and talks about it and working with Harrison Ford as they not only conquer the West, but also the small screen.

But Dame Helen also talks about working wherever the roles take her, and in addition to 1923, her upcoming work includes summer releases The White Bird, Golda, Fast X, Barbie (she’s the narrator), and most recently, her first superhero movie, with DC’s Shazam: Fury Of The Gods. As for playing the role of Israeli legend Golda Meir (which looked fantastic in the footage shown at CinemaCon last week), she received some blowback on the internet when the casting was announced, with some complaining that she wasn’t Jewish. She has interesting things to say about that, as well as her final meeting with Queen Elizabeth just a month before she died, and why the memory of that brings tears to her eyes.

There is so much more, and wait until you see her reaction to the 23-page wikipedia list of her awards and nominations I present to her, as well as her statement that the one she still doesn’t have is a Grammy. That could be coming too, as I point to her recent music video with Kendrick Lamar on “Count Me Out.” This four-time Oscar, 12-time Emmy, and 3-time Tony nominee is always changing it up and doing surprising things.

“I appreciate your loaning them to me on the occasional basis,” co-star Harrison Ford teased in a behind-the-scenes video of the pair’s emmy magazine cover story shoot.

Helen Mirren is opening up about one of her wardrobe staples.

In a behind-the-scenes video of Mirren and Harrison Ford’s emmy magazine cover story shoot focusing on their hit TV show, Yellowstone spinoff series 1923the Academy Award-winning actress revealed what she’s most grateful for in the modern world.

“What have we got now that we didn’t have in 1923?” she pondered while sitting next to her co-star. “Oh you know what I’m very appreciative of? Spanx,” she said as Ford laughed heartily.
“And I appreciate your loaning them to me on the occasional basis,” he teased.

The dynamic duo of acting — “It was like watching two heavyweight champions circle each other in the ring,” Taylor Sheridan, creator of 1923, told emmy in the cover story — were hands on when figuring out costumes for the show.

“When someone wears something completely different in every scene, that annoys me,” she said. “I like to see things repeated, because it’s more like real life.”

Ford also got involved, literally throwing his own hat in the ring when the costume designer was deciding what hat his character should wear.

“That’s the one he chose,” Ford said of Sheridan. “He didn’t know it was my hat.”

Mirren immediately clarified for Ford: “It wasn’t the hat, you realize. It was you in the hat. Because you loved that hat, when you put it on, then you went, ‘This is my hat.’ Do you know what I mean?” she asked?

“I do know what you mean,” Ford said. “And thank God he didn’t know it was my hat, because he would have said, ‘No,'” he added cheekily.
