For a lot of us 2016 has been a rough year.
At Christmas time we often reflect on the year that’s been, looking back at the good and the bad that has happened.
This year we lost a little of familiar faces and saw some terrible things happen around the world, and now Helen Mirren has summed up 2016 in a few fitting words.
Dame Helen has given a brutally honest review of the year that was while appearing on The Graham Norton Show, and if you had a tough year, you’ll probably agree with her words.
When asked by Norton to deliver a Christmas message, Dame Helen did it in fine form.
With her regal tone of voice, she gave a Queen-like Christmas message with a twist.
“Hello, at this time of celebration and togetherness we have the chance to reflect on the year gone by,” she said.
“And I think we can all agree that 2016 has been a big pile of sh*t.
“So my advice to you is to drink responsibly and be merry, have a very happy Christmas and above all, go see Collateral Beauty, out on Boxing Day.”
Earlier on the show Dame Helen, dressed is a playful leopard print dress, got a little cheeky with her Collateral Beauty co-star Will Smith.
Smith gave Norton a little slap on the bum, and Dame Helen didn’t want to miss any of the action.
