These days, chat shows are starting to lift restrictions and having guests on in-person, like Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Bravo. But, there are still a number of shows that are conducting interviews virtually.
We can only imagine what goes into getting ready for a video chat, with so many options, like, "What should I wear? How should I do my hair? Where should I sit in the house?" It seems that last one was on Dame Helen Mirren's mind, when showing up for a catch-up with Jimmy Fallon.
And, where did this fabulous actress decide to sit, when greeting the host and U.S. viewers? Oh, in the bathtub.
And, why not? She says it's her favorite place to be.
Mirren appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to share the deets on her returning to the Fast and Furious franchise, starring in F9.
But, like on the red carpet, when a person may have a wardrobe malfunction, bathtubs can have hiccups, more specifically the bubbles. It appears Mirren had been chillin' in the bath prior to the interview starting, "getting pinker and pinker," and she started to lose some of her foam. Not to worry, it's all PG.
It's not just Mirren's choice of interview spot that's interesting, she reveals in the interview that she finally gets to drive a car in F9, which she has been asking about since joining the franchise in 2017.
Mirren talks about how she convinced the filmmakers to agree to her request, saying, "I whined and moaned enough that they finally let me drive."
That is one way to do it.
This isn't the first time Mirren was spotted in a location that was quite unexpected. In 2011, some NYC public transit riders were surprised to find themselves sitting across from Mirren on the subway.
We really can't get enough of her. So much so, we wrote a post on 10 Reasons We Love Dame Helen Mirren, which you can find here.
If you'd like to have another catch-up with Mirren, F9 hits theaters on June 25.
Are you tempted to start working from home in the bathtub?
