Mirren Backs 'Sensitive' Queen Movie
DAME HELEN MIRREN insists fans of British monarch QUEEN ELIZABETH II have nothing to fear from her controversial new movie THE QUEEN, because the royal will be portrayed "sensitively". The PRIME SUSPECT star plays the title role in upcoming film, which depicts her emotional turmoil following the tragic death of DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES in a car accident in 1997. But she is adamant the tragic time is dealt with respectfully and without any "bitchiness". She says, "Our piece is enormously sensitive to her; it's not some nasty little bitch piece, it's really trying to get inside what happened within the Royal Family in the week after Diana died. "The older generation - what I call my parent's generation - having to confront the Hello! magazine generation, with its fake grief."
