Academy Award winner DAME Helen Mirren has a passionate crush on soccer hunk David Beckham. The pair met this week (begs21May07) at an award ceremony to celebrate the 'Greatest Britons' - and Mirren confesses she was starstruck. The 61-year-old actress tells British radio station Heart, "A soft spot doesn't really start to describe how I feel about David really and I have done for many years. "When you've admired someone and loved them and had a crush on someone for ages you can never quite believe they've heard of you but when go, ‘It’s nice to meet you’… it’s so exciting.”
