Fabulous Helen Mirren takes her place on the Norton sofa tonight to talk up her new film, Hitchcock. She’s been nominated for a Bafta for her role as the director’s long-suffering wife, Alma Reville, opposite Anthony Hopkins as the Master of Suspense.

Mirren is teetering dangerously close to becoming, like her fellow Dame, Judi Dench, a national treasure – she’s funny, never appears to take herself too seriously and is a super-fantastic actress who played the best EVER television detective, Jane Tennison in all of those Prime Suspects.

Keeping her company is the underrated, hugely brilliant comic actor Paul Rudd, who can make any ropey old movie (have you seen The Object of My Affection?) seem not so bad after all. He’s in London promoting his new film, This Is 40, Judd Apatow’s sequel to Knocked Up.


Graham's guests include actress Helen Mirren, star of The Queen, Calendar Girls and Prime Suspect, and who can also be seen alongside Anthony Hopkins in big-screen biopic Hitchcock. He also chats to Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann about movie This Is 40, in which they reprise the characters they played in hit comedy Knocked Up. Little Mix provide the music.
