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.

Shirley MacLaine came – and just as quickly went – on Downton Abbey this season, but her breezy cameo got us thinking.
Now that the Terms of Endearment Oscar winner has broken down the barrier, who among Academy Award winners and nominees should next make a guest appearance on the popular PBS series?
And just what sort of character should he or she play? Upstairs or down?
Here, then, are some recent Oscar-caliber actors who might suitably fit the bill. Please be so kind as to select your favorite. (And, in the comments section, do cast them in suitable roles.) Ta.

Today might be the only day any of us will ever feel sorry for Ben Affleck. The nominations for the 85th annual Academy Awards were announced Thursday morning and the Argo director shockingly didn't make the cut.
But here's who did – and who should have:
Best DirectorThe shock: Two huge snubs! Not only did Argo's Affleck get dissed, even though he had one of the best-reviewed films of the year, but so did Zero Dark Thirty's Kathryn Bigelow, a previous Best Director winner for The Hurt Locker – which I'd argue isn't nearly the accomplishment that Zero Dark Thirty is. Both of the films about terror made the cut for Best Picture, however. But then, that was expected.

To star in the upcoming Hitchcock, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel had to channel classic Hollywood glam – well, at least one of them.
In the film, which tells the story of legendary director Alfred Hitchcock's life and marriage at the time he was making his 1960 horror classic Psycho, Johansson, 27, and Biel, 30, play the parts of that film's leading ladies, Janet Leigh and Vera Miles, respectively.
"When we took that still of Scarlett behind the wheel and put it up against the still of Janet behind the wheel in Psycho, it was eerie," says Hitchcock director Sacha Gervasi. "The extent to which Scarlett was able to channel Janet [was] a real surprise. She brought it in such a way that no one really anticipated."
As for Biel, embodying Miles – a longtime Hitchcock collaborator who had infuriated the mercurial auteur when she dropped out of his Vertigo to have a baby – proved more of a stretch.

Movie history proved golden at this year's Oscars – what with the winning The Artist and Hugo, as well as the nominated My Week with Marilyn – so, what's next?
How about a look-back to Tinseltown's glorious and goriest past with Scarlett Johansson and Anthony Hopkins, who are set to costar in the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, reports Variety.
Johansson will play leading lady Janet Leigh, who took the screen's most famous shower in the 1960 classic of its genre. James D'Arcy (Madonna's W.E.) will play Anthony Perkins, whose acting career never quite recovered after he was typecast as Norman Bates, a motel owner with something of a mother complex.

Oprah Winfrey is not the only big star staying up late after the Oscars next Sunday. PEOPLE has learned that there are even more celebrities joining Jimmy Kimmel's seventh post-Oscar special!
Jessica Biel, new dad (again) Jason Bateman, JJ Abrams, Steven Tyler, Tyler Perry, Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Ryan Philippe are on board for the show's big bit "Movie the Movie."
Given the show's history, it's promising – even if Samuel L. Jackson has choice words for those potentially involved (ABC previously announced Meryl Streep, George Clooney and Tom Hanks.) Check out a very bleeped teaser here: Moviethemovie.com.
It should come as no surprise that the skit will push the envelope. Kimmel's annual special has produced LOL-worthy comedy pieces in the past including "F*@#ing Ben Affleck," "Handsome Men's Club," "Hottie Body Hump Club" and "Tom Hanks's Toddlers in Tiaras".
