Helen Mirren ‘Insulted’ That Hackers Didn’t Try to Find Her Naked Selfies

In a radio interview, 66-year-old actress and preeminent foxy lady Dame Helen Mirren wondered why she, of all celebrities, wasn’t targeted in the celebrity photo hacking scandal that rocked Hollywood last week.

“I kept desperately looking at the list of people whose phones were hacked, hoping to see my name,” the Oscar-winning actress told Magic FM, but was jokingly disappointed that the hackers didn’t even try to get at her. “You weren’t anybody if your phone hadn’t been hacked”.

Mirren added that she found the entire act of hacking people’s phones was “infantile” and “offensive,” and condemned the hackers’ actions. “It’s insulting and stupid to hack phones. The best thing is to be superior and not take it too seriously.”

At the same time: “Who on earth would put nude photos of themselves on their phone anyway? That I don’t quite get.”

The question of whether Dame Helen Mirren actually has naked selfies remains unanswered, but this is the part of the post where we are obligated to link to a photo of her infamous bikini moment.
