Helen Mirren Thanks Kim Kardashian for Allowing Women to Have Thighs

"This is the big word: B-U-T-T."

In an interview with the Telegraph, hella hot septuagenarian Dame Helen Mirren said some fun stuff about getting older, her favorite swear word (f*ck—good choice), and being grateful that celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez have helped popularize a different, curvier kind of body type. 

"I'm not into the Kardashians, it's a phenomenon I just don't find interesting," she said. "But—and this is the big word: B-U-T-T—it's wonderful that you're allowed to have a butt nowadays!

For her own part in promoting "realness," Mirren refuses to let L'Oréal retouch her campaign images for the brand's moisturizer, which, if you'll remember, a watchdog group had to investigate because some people just couldn't believe how hella hot a then-69-year-old can be. Pffft. Fools.
