Helen Mirren: Brits are typecast in US

Helen Mirren has called on movie bosses to stop typecasting British actors as villains. The actress insisted that Brits are an easy target for Hollywood stereotypes, and wants the US to know that people across the pond are not limited to just the Royal Family.

“I think it’s rather unfortunate that the villain in every movie is always British, we’re such an easy target that they can comfortably make the Brits the villains,” she told The Daily Telegraph.

“It is just nice to say we’re not snooty, stuck up, malevolent, malignant creatures as we’re so often portrayed. We’re actually kind of cool and hip! It’s very important to let Americans know that we’re not just the Royal Family, there’s a lot more to us than that.”

Mirren added: “I love the idiosyncrasy of the British people, I love the eccentric nature of the British people, their boldness in fashion and I think the Brits have a very good eye for taste. They have a very good eye for what’s cool and hip and nuts.”
