She looks so bored in this advert, and has no enthusiasm whatsoever.

She is a good looking old lady...

I've seen her up close in real life,
and trust me, she looks her age.

The wonders of modern airbrushing and make up.

well of course, if you see any celebrity in person they look uglier in person. People think that celebrities are like gods and goddesses. No they are just like everyday people on the streets...but with more money.

For instance I was like 6 feet away from Christopher knight's wife in the summer.

she looks absolutely NOTHING like in the image. Its amazing.

So...I take it Helen Mirren isn't a gamer then?

She's like, 'expanded audience', or something.

I think the definition of that is an old person that once used a Wii.

"However she is now immensely proud of her involvement, having learned that the consoles are now being used to help patients that are suffering from the crippling neurological condition Parkinson’s disease.".

Fetch me a bucket.

Are you telling me Parkinson's sufferers can't attempt to stand on one leg without the aid of this crap??

If you are so thrilled about it, why not donate your pay check to some Parkinson's charity then. It killed my Grandfather.
