Washington, Dec 19(ANI): Hollywood legend Dame Helen Mirren was flabbergasted by the support she received from American people ahead of her Oscar win this year.

The Queen star admitted to have been blown away by their charm and kindness.

“In the build up towards the Oscars, I was blown away by the sweetness and generosity of American, Contactmusic quoted the star, as saying.

I’d go through immigration, and they wouldn’t recognise me, but they’d look at the passport and say, ‘Oh Helen Mirren. Good luck. You’re gonna win. I hope you win,” she added.

Despite going up against American star Meryl Streep, the 62-year-old star was convinced that the whole country wanted her to win the Best Actress award for her role in The Queen. (ANI)
