Helen Mirren's no stranger to getting her boobs out and generally flashing her flesh in her later years. And she's done it again. Posing for a photoshoot in New York magazine for photographer Juergen Teller.
To be honest, I'm full of admiration for Mirren for being so self confident to do this, but it's also a bit like discovering nude photos of your granny. You've never discovered nude photos of your granny? Oh...just me then.
However, the celebrity website Yeeeah describes the photos as having a voyeuristic quality to them:
The lighting is weird–it looks like a picture you or I would take. It’s kind of like walking in on Nana as she’s bathing, which is all kinds of icky. Although walking in on Helen Mirren is a lot less icky than walking in on my Nana, who’s 300 pounds and wears a colostomy bag.
On the other hand, the Washington Post suggests that Mirren isn't blazing any kind of trail for the older generation. They note the relationship between the release of Mirren's new movie Love Ranch and the appearance of the photo spread. The thing is, if it's good enough for Kelly Brook (another Calendar Girl?), it's good enough for Dame Helen.
As we continue to speculate about the Pandorica, Riversong and just whats going to happen in The Big Bang. I thought I'd mention this interesting bit of news concerning the next season of Doctor Who ;)
Matt Smith hinted at last night’s finale BAFTA screening that a change could be on the way, although his preference to add a hat has not gone down well.
We all watch TV so I wanted to distract your minds towards poetry. I want all the people to be happy, for an Utopian future with sunshine faces instead of sourness! remember Woop!
On a rainy day, when you begin to lose your way;
as it begins to thunder and people faces are under;
Your beer and your dear will help you on your way!
When the sun starts to shine showing peoples alful yellow nashers, so you begin to moan...
Your beer and your dear will help you on your way! by Kirsty anne symonds (2009)

Diddy, P Diddy, Fiddy, Puff Daddy....whatever you want to call him has revealed that he considered buying British football club Crystal Palace.
The American hip-hop star told BBC news that he dreams about owning his own sports team.
"There was somebody that had looked at it but the business of it just wasn't the right business move for me at the time," the 40-year-old said.
He added: "I'm always looking into different business ventures and it's definitely one of my dreams one day to be a part of a sports franchise, especially a football team."
"If the situation comes my way and it's appealing, we can make the splash and, most importantly, build the right team and win … I'm into winning and if it's the right situation then I'm open to it."
Crystal Palace F.C went into administration on January 2010. Last week it was taken over by CPFC2010 consortium (made up of Martin Long, Steve Parish, Stephen Browett and Jeremy Hoskins).
We couldn't help but laugh at this video of a student from Kalamazoo Central, who fell asleep during one of Barack Obama's speeches this week.
Falling asleep would have been OK, if he wasn't sitting directly behind the American President and in the direct line of all the cameras focused on his country's leader.
The student earned his well located seat as he was singing in the choir. During the video we can see him yawning and fighting to stay awake. At one point, he leans back, only to jump alert and join in during applause. But when the clapping dies down, so does he and it leaves us wondering what he was up to the night before!
It's not like I need an excuse to post a picture of Kelly Brook in her skimpies, but today is a celebration. Miss Brook intends to showcase her lovely assets in a future edition of Playboy.
According to The Sun, Hugh Heffner's iconic publication is set to pay Kelly a cool half-a-million dollars to pose. The shots are said to be "arty", but no word yet as to whether she'll be fully topless.
In what could be one of the best movie promotional campaigns, it's said that Brook is doing this as part of the publicity for her new movie, Piranha 3D.If this type of thing catches on I can't wait for the next Jennifer Love Hewitt movie to come out. I'm just saying.
Brook will jet off to the Mediterranean for the two-day shoot, which means she gets a nice little sunshine break on top of the half-million payday. Lucky b*tch. A 'source' tells The Sun newspaper:
This is a huge opportunity for Kelly who is without doubt one of the world's most beautiful women. Playboy is an iconic publication which is known across the world as a sophisticated title. Kelly can't wait as they are promising a very arty shoot.
Quite tragic news emerging that Brittany Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack has died at the Los Angeles home the couple shared. Monjack's death comes just five months after Brittany died in the bathroom of the same house.
He was found unconscious by his mother-in-law Sharon, who called paramedics to the scene. Although they tried to resuscitate him, their efforts failed, and Monjack was pronounced dead at the scene. Early reports suggested the cause of death to have been a heart attack, but celebrity gossip website TMZ claims that bottles of pills were found at the scene, but say there is no evidence of suicide.
Interestingly, TMZ also note the similarities between the death of Monjack and the death of Brittany in December:
The similarities are remarkable. Murphy was found unconscious by her mother Sharon. Sharon found Simon unconscious as well. Murphy was found in the master bathroom. Simon was found in the master bedroom of the same home. Paramedics administered CPR to Simon. Simon administered CPR to Brittany. And they may have both died from cardiac arrest ... five months apart.
The must-have accessory for married celebrities this season is the secret mistress. Just ask Ronan Keating who's apparently just been caught fooling around with a Boyzone backup dancer.
According to newspaper reports, Keating has been having an affair with 26 year old Francine Cornell, a dancer on his band's UK tour for as much as seven months before being discovered. His wife Yvonne apparently found a 'secret' mobile phone that the singer used to stay in contact with his girlfriend.
Initially, the couple released a statement suggesting that they were separating on amicable terms. However, after a slew of celebrities caught cheating in the last 12 months, most of us suspected that there may have been a deeper cause to the split. It wasn't long before the tabloid press unearthed evidence of an affair that led to the split.
Well it was only a matter of time.....but Ashley Cole has been outed as a slimeball once again!
The estranged husband of X Factor judge Cheryl ruined his marriage with his infidelities and it seems that despite claiming to be heartbroken, the Lothario hasn't changed at all.
Blonde beauty Lucy Phillips revealed on Facebook that she recently chatted to the football star in Swanky Sundays at the Supper Club in Notting Hill, and how he tried it on with her in a toilet cubicle.
She later told The Mirror:
“I was walking past the guys’ toilets when I saw a big group of blokes gathered round. I looked in and saw Ashley Cole holding court, and I went in.”
She says that Cole “then tried it on with her,” but insisted that she “laughed it off” and didn't even lock lips with the star.
Not to be deterred, Lucy said that Ashley gave it one more shot later in the evening.
“A few minutes after I saw him in the toilets I was with my best friend and we walked past Ashley and his mates,” she said. “They saw us and called us over. I sat on the arm of Ashley’s chair and we chatted. After about 10 minutes we decided to leave and enjoy the rest of our night.”
“I definitely didn’t kiss him – I would remember if I had. I’m not like that at all.”
The American Idol judge proposed to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy on Valentines Day of this year, but he is yet to confirm an actual wedding date.
his ex lover and so-called friend, Sinitta clearly doesn't think a wedding will ever take place.
She told the Daily Mirror, "I really don't know if he will go through with it. If he is really true to himself, he probably won't."
Sinitta who first heard of Cowell's marriage plans via the announcement made in the media says, it will be a miracle if he does.
a few of the old cliche's come to mind here;

jealousy is such a waste of an emotion
