It's hard to outshine a few of the hottest men in Britain, but Helen Mirren found a way. The actress stole the show in London last night when she took home the best actress award at the 59th Evening Standard Theatre Awards for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in The Audience. Helen was quick with the jokes while accepting her award, saying, "I'm dying for a pee, but I didn't have the five minutes to take off my Spanx." She later joined friend Maggie Smith, who won the award for icon of the year, and House of Cards star Kevin Spacey, who took home the editor's award for his contribution to British theater, for a round of shots. She also stole a chance to share a giggle and a glass of wine with the internet's favorite celebrity, Tom Hiddleston, who was working as a presenter at the award show. Other famous faces included Damian Lewis, Jude Law, and Hugh Grant.
