Photos: Hot Dame! Helen Mirren Gets Her Star on the Walk of Fame
Mirren was celebrated by scribe David Mamet and director Jon Turteltaub for the ceremony held outside the Pig N' Whistle pub on Hollywood Boulevard. As these ceremonies tend to do, today's honor happened to align with Mirren's current promotion of the HBO television movie "Phil Spector," penned and directed by Mamet, in which Mirren plays the attorney who defended the music producer in his first trial, notes City News Service.
Among Mirren's many credits are her work in films like "The Queen," "Hitchcock," and "Gosford Park," as well as her famed lead role in British TV's "Prime Suspect."
