Helen Mirren, Ellen Degeneres, Russell Brand and Katy Perry - Wednesday 8th December 2010

Academy Award winning actress Helen Mirren makes an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Wednesday, December 8th. Helen shares her experience working with Russell Brand on The Tempest and Arthur. Plus, she reveals the story behind the hilarious photo involving the two of them...and a bathtub! Helen on her co-star Russell Brand... Ellen: Katy Perry is here and Russell is in The Tempest. You're shooting Arthur [with him]. Helen: Yeah, we just finished it. Ellen: You finished it? Helen: Yeah. Ellen: That's going to be great. I can't wait to see it. How is it with Russell Brand and you? He just sent me an email to say hello to you. Helen: Yeah, he would. Ellen: He said some other things. I'll tell you off camera. Helen: I'm sure he did. Ellen: He said you were very sexy. Helen: He's just the best bad boy in the world. I'm just very jealous of Katy being married to him, I must say. She's a lovely girl...He's great. Helen on the photo of Russell Brand in a bathtub as she leans over it (he posted on Twitter)... Helen: It was me sort of fulfilling a fantasy because he always did a bit in his comedy show about his fantasy of me giving him a bath. And this is before we did the movie. Ellen: Really? Helen: Yeah, apparently. I never saw it. His stand up show. And there we were. Playing a scene where he is in a bath and I was playing his nanny walking around so I said, Why don't we recreate your fantasy, Russell? Photo (1 image)
