1. Helen Mirren: the first words I’d teach my daughter to say would be “fuck off”.
Dame Helen Mirren doesn’t have children but boy do we reckon she’d make a great mother.
She’s told the Mail on Sunday that the first words she’d teach her hypothetical daughter to say would be “fuck off”.
The Dame’s comments were in a direct response to the sexism she endured in the 60s, 70s and 80s in the entertainment industry and the type of abuse British entertainer Jimmy Savile was able to inflict during his time at the BBC network.
The 67-year-old feminist said, “If I’d had children and had a girl, the first words I would have taught her would have been ‘fuck off’ because we weren’t brought up ever to say that to anyone, were we?
“And it’s quite valuable to have the courage and the confidence to say, ‘No, fuck off, leave me alone, thank you very much.’”
“You see, I couldn’t help saying ‘Thank you very much’, I just couldn’t help myself.”
You have to love a woman who doesn’t forget her manners when using expletives.
