Helen Mirren And Her Delightful Accent Take On Manspreaders

Helen Mirren is not a fan of manspreaders.

In a March 31 appearance on "The Tonight Show," the 69-year-old actress discussed her new Broadway play "The Audience," her NYC subway adventures and, of course, manspreading.

When Jimmy Fallon showed a picture of the regal Mirren sitting on an NYC subway, she pointed out that the man next to her was manspreading. “He’s doing the classic, the manspreading thing," she said. "I can’t do it in my dress. But guys do do that, don’t they?"

When Fallon agreed and commented that manspreading is the “new thing,” Mirren said, “No they’ve always done it! It’s just now they’re being called on it."

Go on with your bad self, Helen.
