Helen Mirren Advises Amanda Bynes: "Don't Be Up Your Own Bum"
When it comes to troubled young actresses like Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan, Helen Mirren isn't mincing words.
The Oscar winner didn't hold back when she was recently asked what kind of advice she would give to the starlets. "I don't know if you're allowed to say this on television: Don't be up your own bum," Mirren said during a junket for her film Red 2. "People get up their own [bum], and you really don't need to. It's the thing of the young, and just don't do that."
The biggest celebrity feuds
While Lohan — who turned 27 on Tuesday — has been lying low after beginning her 90-day rehab sentence, Bynes, who has a court date next Tuesday to face charges in her bong-throwing arrest, has been as busy as ever on Twitter.
On Monday, Bynes revealed that she had her eye on a special someone other than rapper Drake, about whom she frequently tweets compliments. "I'm In Love With Someone Else Who I Do Not Follow On Twitter Who Is The Most Gorgeous Man I Know But Drake Comes In Second," she wrote. The following day, Bynes seemed to have marriage on her mind. "I Need To Have Surgery To Look Beautiful For The Man I'm In Love With So I Feel Comfortable With The Way I Look When We Get Married," she tweeted on Tuesday.
In addition to plastic surgery, Bynes sounds like she is also watching her weight to achieve her ideal body type. "I just weighed myself and I'm 114! Only 14lbs closer to 100," she posted on Wednesday.
Help her, Helen Mirren. You're her only hope.
