What Helen Mirren Didn't Have on Under Her Dress | Helen Mirren
Those rumors that Helen Mirren went commando at the Academy Awards are false – well, sort of. While chatting on The Oprah Winfrey show, the Best Actress winner brought out the custom-made Christian Lacroix gown she wore to the Oscars. "You look at the inside of this dress," Mirren said, showing off the boning and built-in bra. "It was all made for me, so I didn't have to have any underwear – well I mean, I did have underwear!" But up in Cleavagetown, it was a different story: Clutching her bosom, Mirren explained to Winfrey, "It held me like two angel's hands." Sure, it's not the first time we've seen her show off the goods (remember the Golden Globes?) Let's just hope she keeps 'em covered for her tea with the Queen.
