In Addition to Looking Terrific in a Bikini, Helen Mirren Is Also Modest

Susan Jane Belton's Greek Side (2007).

"I am beyond bikini-wearing age. I wouldn't normally wear one. The truth is, I don't really look that good. It was just a flattering picture. I look like a woman in her 60s. I've always looked awful in a bikini — even when I was young." Helen Mirren scoffs at the photo that rocked our world [WENN via Starpulse]

"For those of you who don't think length matters, I disagree — especially when it comes to wieners." Martha Stewart tells the hard truth about hot dogs on the Martha Stewart Show [Lifeline Live/USAT]

"I write a lot in public restrooms because the acoustics are great. 'Happy,' from my last album, I wrote in a bathroom. I've talked about installing a proper bathroom in the house, with a urinal and stalls." Jenny Lewis [Rolling Stone]

"I probably just rhymed with door. Or she couldn't find anything to rhyme with Connery." Sir Roger Moore on being mentioned on Amy Winehouse's album [Telegraph UK]

"Actually, it got a little silly. I was telling the actresses a few jokes because I wanted to lighten things up and make sure they were comfortable. A lot of them were there just for one day to do a sex scene with me so it was like, 'Hi," and then the director would be saying, 'Let's go. We've gotta do this.' And it was over and then it was on to the next one. I personally didn't have time to get nervous. I was so busy having sex." Sam Rockwell on filming all of the sex scenes in Choke [Parade]

"I do seem to be the record-holder for characters named 'Billy' in re-imagined television shows." Paul Campbell, who played Billy Keikeya on Battlestar Galactica, will be playing a character named Billy Morgan in Knight Rider [ScifiWire]
