September 1, 2008: "Dame Helen Mirren Confesses To Being Date-Raped Twice When She Was Younger"
Dame Helen Mirren was date-raped twice when she was younger, but never reported the crimes. The 63-year-old actress revealed she was too scared to say no and forced to have sex.
Helen said: "I was date-raped, yes. A couple of times. Not with excessive violence, but rather being locked in a room and made to have sex against my will. If a woman voluntarily ends up in man's bedroom with her clothes off... it's such a tricky area, isn't it? Especially if there is no violence. I think she has the right to say no at the last second. But I don't think she can have that man in court under those circumstances."
"I guess it is one of the many subtle parts of the men/women relationship that has to be negotiated and worked out between them."
"I was polite and didn't have the courage to say that to men who wouldn't accept 'no' for an answer. I was very innocent when I went to college in London. I went to a convent school and had never spent a night away from home or gone to parties or any of that."
Helen, who is married to American director Taylor Hackford, also revealed she used to regularly take the class A drug cocaine when she was in her 30s.
August 1, 2008: "Helen Mirren Has The Sexiest Stomach In The World, According To New Poll"
Dame Helen Mirren has one of the sexiest celebrity stomachs in the world, according to a new survey. The 63-year-old actress came third in the poll, which was carried out by stomach-flattening supplement AntiBloat.
AntiBloat spokesperson Jalal Janmohamed said: "The survey results reveal that a sexy stomach isn't governed by age, which is good news for all those wanting to tone up or maintain a flat tummy."
'Umbrella' singer Rihanna topped the poll. The 20-year-old Barbados-born beauty is renowned for her revealing stage outfits and shocked fans with a variety of bondage-style costumes during her tour earlier this year. British actress Keira Knightley came second in the survey.
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star is famous for wearing midriff-flashing costumes, and has bared her taut abs in movies including 'Bend It Like Beckham' and 'King Arthur'.
Keira's 'The Edge of Love' co-star Sienna Miller - who showed off her enviable toned figure in a skimpy bikini while on holiday recently - secured fourth place on the list.
