Dame Helen Mirren has revealed she is not Russell Brands cougar, after he sung her praises in a recent interview.

Comedian Brand has starred with Mirren in two films recently, the Tempest and Arthur, and sang her praises saying he “wants to snog” the “sexy” two time Oscar winner.

Helen joked, “That’s his business! It’s got nothing to do with me,” adding: “I think he went off that whole idea when he saw me staggering into work at 5am.”

65 year-old Mirren has worked with a lot of people in her career and admitted Brand was one of the best.

“He’s great. He’s really smart, he’s really kind, he’s very hard working and he’s out there as well. I don’t know how he juggles being nice, kind, smart and hard-working with being the Russell Brand that we also know and love. He’s a truly extraordinary person,” she said.

The pair had a lot of laughter time together both on and off screen.

Helen added: “He was as funny off the screen as he was on the screen, he just can’t help himself. He reminds me a little bit of Robin Williams like that – his brain is always working
