Obama Says What We're All Thinking About Helen Mirren

100% accurate.

At his last White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Barack Obama did the impossible: he found something that both his supporters and opponents can agree on.

"Helen Mirren is here tonight," Obama said before the crowd of politicians, celebrities and reporters gathered at the annual black tie event on Saturday night. "I don't have a joke here, I just think Helen Mirren is awesome."

Indeed Mirren, whose staggering film career has amassed her a treasure trove of awards, is irrefutably awesome. The British actress showed up to the event wearing a stunning purple dress and fake tattoo honoring Prince.
