So, how old is Helen Mirren?

And at this point, it turned out that the actress actually did not remember her age.

Mirren was sure she was already 73 and will turn 74 later this year. But when Ellen helped her do the math, they agreed that the British beauty was actually a whole year younger than she thought.

This is amazing,” said Mirren, “I've just made a whole year!
