Mirren makes Hollywood impression

Dame Helen Mirren is still making an impression in Hollywood.

The Oscar-winning actress sank her feet in wet cement outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Monday, joining a long list of celebrity hand and foot prints in the courtyard of the famed Hollywood tourist spot.

The ceremony comes less than two weeks before the release of her latest movie, Arthur, in which she plays the nanny to the irresponsible billionaire played by Russell Brand.

Mirren won an Academy Award for her portrayal of the Queen in the 2006 film The Queen.

She also got Oscar nominations for her roles in The Madness of King George, Gosford Park and The Last Station.
