British comedian Russell Brand is delighted to be working with DAME Helen Mirren - because he has a huge crush on the actress.
The pair will star in a new adaptation of William Shakespeare's The Tempest, with Mirren taking on the role of Prospero and Brand playing jester Trinculo.
And the comic admits it will be a challenge to work with The Queen star, because he thinks she is so attractive.
He say, "She is so hot. There's something about her that drives me wild. She's so sexy and enchanting. Just look at her form. They're going to have to hold me back when we start work. I'll be all over her, I don't know how I'm going to get any work done. I'm going to try and get off with her."
