Helen Mirren shocks awards audience with joke about private parts
The Oscar-winning actress was at a ceremony attended by the likes of Naomi Campbell, Amanda Holden and Claudia Winkleman when she made the quip.
When The Queen star Dame Helen got to the stage at the end of the evening to receive her Glamour icon award, she joked that being lauded as an icon was "weird" adding: "If I'm an icon this year, by next year am I kind of de-iconised?"
She then sparked laughter from the A-List audience by continuing the theme, saying: "Anyway I do have a real c**k...a psychic c**k!
"I do, I mean I love my vagina.... but maybe it's that that's got me here, I don't know!"
She said that she was "so proud" to be a member of the female sex.
Dame Helen, who was presented with the gong by Ryan Reynolds, added that she was looking forward to the ageing process.
"40 is good, 50 is great, 60 is fab and 70 is f***king awesome," she said.
