Helen Mirren's 'SNL' Kiss With Abby Elliot In 'The Roosevelts' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Helen Mirren is known for being much saucier and fun in person than the her most well-known characters, such as the queen. So it's no surprise that 'SNL' mined that dichotomy for all it was worth in several sketches.

We thought they'd done all they could with the topic when Nasim Pedrad and Kristen Wiig groped Mirren's bosom in the digital short. But another opportunity to witness Mirren's playful sexuality came during a parody of "The Kennedy's" mini-series, "The Roosevelts." As historical inaccuracies piled up in the sketch, Marilyn Monroe finally entered the oval office to serenade FDR (even though she would have been only 5 at the time), just before getting some serious face time from Mirren's Eleanor Roosevelt.
