British actress Helen Mirren has admitted to being absolutely stunned at winning a best body title and insists that she won it by getting the ‘sympathy vote’. 66 year old Helen was given the award by LA Fitness, the top health and fitness chain, and beat off competition from the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Brook and Elle McPherson. She was very vocal in saying that J-Lo should have one as she is a million times more beautiful.
She added that she was grateful to the fitness chain and in her opinion it was a recognition that you didn’t have to be perfect. LA Fitness have also spoken of the award and said that the very fact that Helen came top of their Best Body poll clearly shows that when it comes to well-being and body maintenance age is nothing except a number. They added it was a celebration of all ages and proof you can look fabulous once over 50.
Helen said on the Early Show on CBS that she intended discussing the award with J-Lo and telling her that she clearly should have won. Helen’s husband is currently working with J-Lo on a movie and said that he loved the fact both she and J-Lo were on the front page of a paper and made a big deal of his two leading ladies being on the same cover.
