Keep calm ... and shut the hell up.
Helen Mirren, in full Queen Elizabeth II regalia, wasn't amused on Saturday when she stormed out of the Gielgud Theater in London's West End, where she currently is playing the lead role as Her Majesty in the play The Audience.
No, it wasn't simply a cell phone going off in the theater that got the Oscar winner's goat – it was an entire troupe of dancing drummers beating their instruments outside while she was performing on stage, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Take it from Lizzy: the job market is ruff.
The 7-year-old Corgi was fired from London's West End production of The Audience, which stars Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II, for failing to obey the actress on stage. During a scene in which the Corgi is supposed to run across the stage after being called by Mirren, 67, Lizzy stayed in the wings. The misfire happened in 16 preview performances, prompting the casting change.
Taking Lizzy's place? A 5-year-old Corgi named Coco.
