With so much experience in Hollywood over the years, it doesn’t seem like anything could intimidate Helen Mirren anymore.
However, in her new feature article in the August 2014 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, the “Calendar Girls” gal admitted she freaked out when she met Queen Elizabeth II.
She told Oprah Winfrey, “I was terrified. There are certain people who can deal with meeting the queen. But the vast majority of us get queenitis. You just – you cannot think of anything to say.”
However, Mirren was also taken aback by winning an Oscar for portraying the English royal in her film “The Queen.” “The Oscar is just one of those amazing, magical moments that came out of the blue. Years ago, there used to be an ad in England for the lottery that featured an ordinary family going about their life and this big, sparkly finger coming out of the sky and pointing in through the window as if to say, ‘It could be you, winning the lottery.’ I feel that way about the Oscar. It was a big finger that came out of the sky and said, ‘It’s you.’ You witness in your life so many talented people who deserve the greatest success but are not getting it for all kinds of reasons. So much of it is hard work, but it’s a lottery as well.”
And though she didn’t marry her husband Taylor Hackford until 1997, Helen has no regrets about waiting so long to get hitched. “I used to say to Taylor, ‘I wish we’d met earlier on. We’ve missed so much time together.’ And he’d say, ‘We’d never be together now if we met earlier.’ And I think he’s actually right because we were both on a trajectory of work and ambition and, of course, to a certain extent, wanting to resolve ourselves as ourselves. Before I met Taylor, all my relationships took second place to my work. If I had to go to Africa, it was ‘Bye-bye, I’m off to Africa.’ And then he came into my life, and I started thinking, Maybe it’s time to have a different attitude – and to say that my relationship is at least as important as my work. To give it the time.”

With Ciara on maternity leave and approaching 30, it’s time for a new girl to work her lane!
The 21-year-old from Kentucky has got the looks, the dance moves, the voice and now the song!
2 On is a slice of urban pop heaven!
This reminds us of some old school Aaliyah …
The original version of this song didn’t resonate with us, but the Oliver Heldens remix of Robin Thicke’s Feel Good is major major major!!!!!!
If THIS would have been the single version, it would have been a big hit!
Dancefloor anthem – yet we could still hear this on the radio!
Cool yet …
That story and more in today’s roundup!
According to Page Six, our fave Leo DiCaprio did everything in his power to avoid the Keeping Up With The Kardashians kameras:

There was a made-for-reality-TV scene as Brody Jenner was DJ-ing at the party, with his progressively weirder-looking dad, Bruce Jenner, fist-pumping (“Jersey Shore”-style) by his side in the DJ booth, along with brother Brandon Jenner.
A spy said, “Leo didn't want to be filmed for 'Keeping Up' and didn't want to arrive until filming was over.” Leo joined his close pal Lukas Haas and a group for a Mexican-themed party for Frankie Delgado.
Apparently Paris Hilton kept her distance, too (but we all know how far back her beef with Kim goes).
Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian are allegedly pregnant with their third child, though neither have confirmed the rumor. E! suggests you watch the season premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians this Sunday to find out the (obvious) TRUTH.

Breaking news: Prince William told reporters about his musical tastes, saying, “I really like Coldplay, Linkin Park.”
Speaking at Cannes today, Quentin Tarantino reportedly revealed loose plans to turn Django Unchained into the blood-drenched Roots of our age. “My idea, frankly, is to cut together a four-hour version of Django Unchained,” the director explained. “But I wouldn’t show it like a four hour movie. I would cut it up into hour chapters. Like a four-part mini-series. And show it on cable television. Show it like an hour at a time, each chapter. We’d use all the material I have and it wouldn’t be an endurance test. It would be a mini-series. And people love those.” It’s true. We do.
