Helen Mirren’s Bang On Christmas Message: ‘2016 Has Been a Big Pile of Sh*t’
The timeless, iconic actress delivered a fitting end-of-year message on ‘The Graham Norton Show.’
Marlow Stern

Helen Mirren, the Oscar-winning star of Caligula, Prime Suspect, and Teaching Mrs. Tingle (it’s good, OK!), is the very definition of a lady boss. In 1975, she famously souffléd a sexist talk-show host on live television; has confessed her former “love” of cocaine at parties; and criticized men putting their arms around their girlfriend’s shoulders as a form of gross “ownership.” She is eternally wise, and eternally sexy.

The timeless one appeared on The Graham Norton Show—the excellent U.K. late-night talk show whose random-stars-on-the-couch format was ripped off by James Corden—and was asked by the titular host to deliver a Christmas message to the masses.



So, in typical Mirren fashion, she let it rip: “Hello. At this time of celebration and togetherness, we have the chance to reflect on the year gone by. And I think we can all agree that 2016 has been a big pile of shit,” she said, in a regal tone similar to the one she employs as presenter of Documentary Now!

“So my advice to you is drink responsibly, and be merry. Have a very Happy Christmas,” she added. “But above all, go see Collateral Beauty, out on Boxing Day.”

Unfortunately for Mirren, critics have not been kind to the film.

If it was that in the UK, how would we describe it here in the US? Eek

The worst is, I don't know about the UK, but in the US it's going to get worse in 2017... dead
