Helen Mirren Graces' Cover of People Magazine's "Beautiful Issue"

Helen Mirren Graces' Cover of People Magazine's "Beautiful Issue" ...

In a cover letter from People magazine's "The Beautiful Issue," she discusses her beauty beliefs and how the Oscar nominee still gets nervous before filming a role.

The magazine on Wednesday published the cover of the annual issue, which airs on newsstands.

Mirren, 76, said she was "gobstruck" after learning about her skill and never considered herself attractive, particularly at her age. From her perspective, the term beauty should be dubbed "swagger."

"I love the word swagger, because I think swagger means I am confident in myself, I'm presenting myself to the world around me," Mirren said of the actress, who won an Academy Award for Best actress for her role in the 2006 film The Queen. Mirren has spent an impressive acting career of over 140 people in 55 years.

"I think what is now called the beauty industry," she said. "We're giving people swagger."

Despite her unpredictable career, she still struggles to open up before starting a new project.

Im very consternated about the day-to-day process, said Mirren, who played the role of The Long Good Friday, Elizabeth I and The Cook, the Thief, his wife, and her lover. And meeting and dealing with new people. I just get very consternated until I get into the swing of things and then I kind of relax.

Mirren said she's calmed her nerves and she does not read any reviews either good or bad.

While Mirren is reluctant to express herself as beautiful, Vin Diesel believes the term is perfectly compatible with her.

"She has a unique character. She has a committed suicide and always has a jovial spirit," says Diesel, who directed F9 for Mirren in 2021. "But I think the most satisfying about Dame Helen Mirren is the way she makes you feel. She always makes you feel appreciated and loved. And for that, Iove her forever."
