Actress Helen Mirren did not wear make-up for the big screen adaptation of William Shakespeare play “The Temptest” because it would look ridiculous.
The 65-year-old actress played sorcerer Prospera and says the subject matter and time period the movie was set in didn’t allow her to wear cosmetics, contactmusic.com.
“The director Julie Taymor was an absolute demon about me wearing no make-up. And of course she was quite right. It would look ridiculous,” she told The Scotsman.
