James Marsden Says He 'Stalked' His Crush, Helen Mirren, At The Airport

When in Rome?

Another reason to envy Dame Helen Mirren — she’s got James Marsden crushing on her.

The hunky actor spoke about “stalking” the apple of his eye on Monday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” 

Marsden revealed that he’d never met the Oscar-winning actress (even though she was waiting backstage at “Ellen”), though he confessed he did follow her in an airport once. 

“I was on a flight with her once to Rome,” the actor said. “And when I got off the flight, I followed her to baggage claim, and in a very voyeuristic, creepy way, I took a photo of her while she was walking.” 

“I just love her ― I really do,” the 43-year-old actor said. “I’ve had a massive crush on her for years.” 

DeGeneres put the photo up onscreen for the audience to see (Mirren’s husband is actually in the shot!), before Marsden got the surprise of his life ― a kiss from the Queen herself!
