Russell Brand certainly brings out Helen Mirren’s naughty side. The costars became close during the filming of their movie, Arthur. So close in fact, that Helen Mirren is considering framing Russell Brand’s underwear.
The 65-year-old actress was given a pair of Russell Brand’s knickers in October and she’s putting them to good use. “I am going to have them framed!” the Oscar-winner told UsMagazine.com during an appearance at the Producers Guild Awards. “And put them over my bed!”
The unlikely comedy duo is still friends and had such a blast filming Arthur. Helen Mirren even took to Twitter with a picture of her giving Russell Brand a wedding band — relax, it was all in good fun. “We’re really close friends,” Mirren told UsMagazine.com. “I wear the safety pin that he gave me around my neck all the time!”
Brand has his own opinion of the fabulous Mirren. Last year he told UsMagazine.com, “I continue to be fascinated and infatuated with her and the more time I spend with her and the more I get to know her, the more the fascination increases. She is an incredible woman.”
Would you frame Russell Brand’s underwear if given the chance?
