Helen Mirren unaffected by Princess Dianas deathMarch 24th, 2008 - 5:51 pm ICT by admin
Washington, March 24 (ANI): Dame Helen Mirren has revealed that she was unfazed by the death of late British royal Princess Diana.
The Oscar winning actress admitted that she doesn’t even remember where she was when she heard the tragic news.
The 62-year-old won an Academy Award for her role as Queen Elizabeth II in 2006 movie The Queen, which focused on the repercussions of the princess’s death in August 1997.
However, Mirren said that she remembers very little about that time.
“I honestly can’t remember where I was when Princess Diana was killed. I was in America but don’t recall where. Everyone I know says they remember that moment, but I do not, Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
Mirren also confessed that she was sceptical about the public outpouring of sadness in the days after the tragic car crash in Paris.
“I did not see the public reaction as grief. I saw it as people, like addicts, having their drugs taken away from them, she said. (ANI)
