Feminists are insufferable: Helen Mirren bashes Ivanka Trump and says Melania has the power to bring down her husband

This is rich: From Hollywood Reporter

“Helen Mirren Gets Insulted When People Treat Her the Age She Is.” From the article:

Mirren doesn’t want anyone treating her like her age, either. “If people treat me like the age I am, I get absolutely insulted, really cross. I hate when people give up their seat for me,” says Mirren.

Yet she’s perfectly A-OK with insulting other people. Got it.

From Daily Mail: Dame Helen Mirren has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and his administration, and the actress didn’t hold back when it came to sharing his thoughts on his daughter’s ‘ignorant’ book about working women.  

Although Ivanka Trump has branded herself as a feminist who is dedicated to empowering women, 72-year-old icon and advocate for women’s rights told Allure that she isn’t buying it.

‘[Ivanka] talks a good game, but there’s no substance. Her book is so ignorant about how the majority of women live, talking about, “Make time for yourself to have a massage.” Puh-lease,’ Mirren said in reference to Women Who Work, Ivanka’s latest book.

Women Who Work received scathing reviews from numerous publications that slammed the book for being tone-deaf when it it came out in May this year. In one excerpt, Ivanka discussed going into ‘survival mode’ while working on her father’s presidential campaign, explaining that she didn’t have time to treat herself to massages or meditate like she would have liked.

Critics found revelations like those to be cringe-worthy and oblivious to the realities that plague other working moms that don’t have the financial means or outside help that Ivanka has.

Despite her obvious disdain for Ivanka, who works as her father’s senior adviser, Mirren’s feelings about First Lady Melania Trump are more mixed.

‘You look at old Mel there, and she is one of the most powerful women in the world because she could take him down,’ the actress said of Melania, noting that the former model ‘almost’ brought her husband down when she brushed off his hand.

‘I’m Eastern European, you know; [we’ve] got these dark souls,’ Mirren added. ‘That dark Slovenian soul is about to come out. She’s only got to do a nice interview with Allure.’

Now an outspoken advocate for gender equality, the Academy, Emmy and Tony Awards winner reflected on her past struggle to call herself a feminist, and how she has embraced the label.

‘I wasn’t into the very didactic feminism of the ’60s and ’70s because I liked wearing makeup and high heels. That was a no-no. It was sort of “That’s playing to the patriarchy,” ‘ she said.

‘I was thinking, “Well, I just really like it.” Then as feminism developed, they realized you can like nice dresses, high-heeled shoes, and makeup. That’s not stopping you from being feminist.’

The British-born actress, who had a Russian father and an English mother, recounted taking part in New York City’s Women’s March earlier this year, describing it as a ‘positive, funny… joyous’ event, even though everyone in attendance ‘had good reason to be angry’.

Bashing the current administration, she added: ‘[Trump] just said and did whatever it took to get what he desired. That is quite terrifying, because it means there’s a lack of morality there and a lack of conscientiousness.

  2. So she accuses President Trump of — “…..she added: ‘[Trump] just said and did whatever it took to get what he desired. That is quite terrifying, because it means there’s a lack of morality there and a lack of conscientiousness.” — exactly what every other politician for the last seventy years has done. Whoopie!!! I think this is called the-pot-calling-the-kettle-black!!.

  4. If your sooooo anti “treat women like women” then start working and acting like a man. Quit styling your hair, wearing make up, jewlery,dresses etc. Wear overalls, get some dirt on your face and hands a quit acting like a woman. If your OLD, your old and whining about it isn’t going to make you any younger.

  5. If actors would just do their overrated jobs, making mostly mindless entertainment for the masses, they wouldn’t make asses of themselves in public. With few exceptions they are self absorbed glorified mimics who make most of us cringe when they spout their offscreen nonsense.

  6. I am old, and proud to have gotten here the way it has been. Wrinkles, sagging butt, boobs covering my navel I can only see it with a mirror, and if that Mirren old bag gets insulted just too bad, she has an inferiority complex that I don’t have. Bcause these liberals cannot bring PresidentbTrump down they attack Melania, why can that old woman spend her time with women in need? HELLEN MIRREN FACE REALITY, YOU ARE OLD.

  9. What frys me is that Brit feels that it is okay to wade in with their negative opinion of Our President! I don’t really care what she thinks about the POTUS, or Our First Family . . . don’t you have enough problems over there to occupy your time? When you’ve solved all the problems of Great Britain, then perhaps we might listen to what you have to say.

  11. Well, coming from a woman that is determined to go out as a bitter old woman, maybe she should start acting her age and be a little more dignified. What is so special being a feminist, we already have every right a man has?
    Why would anyone want to bring her husband down? You marry for love, not what damage you can do. You marry a partner not a combatant.
    I wonder what her husband thinks of her snarky remarks?
    Maybe she should have spent part of her life and be a mother, it might have softened her a little. She seems like someone that wouldn’t even have a pet.
    Something has seriously damaged that woman. Being that nasty is not an attribute,

  12. Helen, look around and you should see that Melania is of no concern to you. Queens Elizabeth II is. She is taking down the United Kingdom in her effort to take over the world. With a few “well-qualified” tyrants.

  15. Since when, do actors have a clue about anything not included in a script?

    So quick to take offense. Has it ever occurred to Mirren that people give up their seat for her because she’s “Helen Mirren, movie star” or because of male chivalry? Of course, she would take offense at male chivalry as well.

    You would think that at age 72, with all her acting accomplishments, including an Oscar, Mirren would be more self-confident, less insecure, less bitchy, and not constantly bristling at imagined insults.
