Helen Mirren: I loved cocaine.

LONDON - Oscar-winning British actress Helen Mirren said she used to love cocaine, but stopped taking the drug after learning that a Nazi war criminal profited from the trade, according to a magazine.

The 63-year-old, who won an Academy Award for her role in "The Queen," was quoted by GQ magazine as saying she used to dabble in marijuana and cocaine when she was younger.

"I loved coke. I never did a lot, just a little bit at parties," Mirren was quoted as telling the magazine in an interview, which was made available to the media Monday. "But what ended it for me was when they caught (Nazi war criminal) Klaus Barbie, the Butcher of Lyon, in the early 80s. He was hiding in South America and living off the proceeds of being a cocaine baron.

"And I read that in the paper, and all the cards fell into place, and I saw how my little sniff of cocaine at a party had an absolute direct route to this ... horrible man in South America," she was quoted as saying.

Mirren also reportedly said she used to steal during what she described as a "very poor" youth.

"I needed to shoplift for food," she reportedly said, adding that while she enjoyed "the accoutrements of movie star life" she still had frugal instincts, cutting her own hair and wearing dollar-store glasses.

Mirren said she was not a royalist but had become a fan of Queen Elizabeth II since playing her in "The Queen."

"It's a miracle she's never gone mad," Mirren was quoted as saying. "She is a remarkable person, who has achieved an amazing thing with a life she neither chose for herself, nor particularly wanted."

Mirren's interview is carried in the British edition of GQ, which goes on sale Thursday.

A little bit shocking, wouldn't have expected that from her. But none-the-less almost everyone does something at one point or another. However, I would like to see her smoking some ganja.

Re: Helen Mirren: I loved cocaine.

Is this the same interview in which she says Mike Tyson isn't guilty ?

Re: Helen Mirren: I loved cocaine.

I find this shocking. Only because every time I see her in an interview or something she seems really dull and comes up with really corny jokes (so corny they should be served with butter... I couldn't help that one ). And SHE used to do coke? Then again I saw more surpising things in Uni so shouldn't be all that surprised.

But Helen Mirren... I remember one of her speeches during the Oscar run... "Ladies and gentlemen I give you the Queen " ... *crowd is silent and uncomfortable*. And she did coke

I thought the ending of her Oscar speech was pretty cool, toasting to the Queen. After I won the biggest acting achievement at my old school, I held up the award and toasted the character I played.

Boo you whore.

But if coke = oscar gold, wouldn't Lindsay Lohan be the best actress in Hollywood?

Ewww..what a shame. No originality at all.

Perhaps she will one day. Helen also waited almost half a decade and finally won one.

Helen
Actually people came up to me and said it was the best speech of the night.

Lindsay Lohan shouldn't even get an invitation to the academy awards, let alone win one.

Maybe that's the reason why she looks so hot at her age.
