  • As of June 23, 2020 I have been starving for charm, elegance, and dignity that has been missing in the USA since 2016. I am grateful for a bit of relief from the chaos.

  • why isn't Sir Ian McKellen's amazing style not discussed more?? out of roles, he is iconic (hell - in roles, he's iconic!) also, Dame Helen Mirren is just delightful

  • Is it me or this interview felt very awkward? I mean they're obviously good friends, but they're two Actors with capital A and both amazing story tellers. It felt like they were interrupting each other a lot.

  • Do not let the movie ruin the stage show for you. If you get a chance to see the stage see it.

  • The wisdom that comes out of their mouths is just overwhelming. I would pay to attend their masterclass sessions but I'm not sure if I can even afford a ticket.

  • Ian is Godsent, and Helen a blessing :) Such a poetic, true description of how human beings choose to portray aspects of themselves depending on the audience. Now that hit home. And in these times we can still choose to give good to others - an uplifting word; gestures of kindness; a call/email or donation. Cheers for sharing, Stephen. Through mirth & conversation, we learn to be better.

  • Dear Sir Ian Mckellen, I have always had the feeling that you defend freedom and that you support those in need. Today I would like to ask you to say some sentences in public demanding the release of Julian Assange. Assange has been fighting for free information and bringing war crimes to the eyes of the public. Thank you for your understanding and all the best. Michael Haas

  • Helen almost scares the hell out of me, lol. She's in her mid 70s and looks her age, but despite that, there's just something about her... she's somehow hot and sexy anyway, and I can't really explain why. I find her very attractive. She makes me feel funny.

  • There will never be more epic moments in any movie than 65 year old Helen Mirren unexpectedly shooting at Julian McMahon with a giant f*ck off machine gun in a parking lot, or the wizened Ian McKellan channelling the earth-shaking majesty and righteous fury of Valinor to banish the Balrog at the Bridge of Khazad-dûm.
