Mirren Nabbed Brand's Pants

DAME HELEN MIRREN has got into RUSSELL BRAND's pants - literally.
The Oscar winner wanted a keepsake to remember her The Tempest co-star when they wrapped the film - and decided to nab his underwear.
She explains, "He was leaving and he was coming to say goodbye and he had a pile of books and papers (from his trailer) and on top of all these things were a pair of bright yellow, canary yellow underpants - Y-fronts.
"I grabbed them and said, 'Russell, I'm having those as my little memento of working with you.'"
And the actress reveals, "I put them on occasionally."
Mirren thoroughly enjoyed working with the outrageous funnyman and she can't wait to work with him again when she plays his nanny/butler in the upcoming Arthur remake.
She adds, "He's a great guy... He's very sweet. He's got a very good heart and I loved working with him."
