Dame Helen Mirren recently appeared at Brown’s Women in the World summit to talk with Tina Brown about her career, learning how to play Queen Elizabeth, and more. According to Vulture, although Mirren touched on serious topics such as sexism and the treatment of women in Hollywood, the conversation was generally lighthearted as the actress spoke openly about her attitude towards how she’s been treated. She also made it clear that she’s rooting for a woman president and actively supports Hillary Clinton’s run.
“I’ve always said how incredibly important Margaret Thatcher was—although I didn’t agree with her politics,” Mirren said. “She was a role model for a little 3-year-old girl [to think] that she could become the prime minister of England. It’s so incredibly important. So, go Hillary!”
