Helen Mirren Having Tea With the Queen?

In her wonderfully gracious acceptance speech at last night's Oscars, Best Actress winner Helen Mirren gave a sincere and playful shout-out to Queen Elizabeth II, who she portrays in The Queen, saying "For 50 years and more, Elizabeth WIndsor has maintained her dignity, her sense of duty, and her hairstyle."

It seems Her Majesty may have been paying attention: Variety is now reporting that Helen Mirren may actually be having tea with Queen Elizabeth II. According to a palace spokesman:

"The Oscar winner — along with director Stephen Frears and screenwriter Peter Morgan — are in discussions to have a sitdown with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace in the near future."

To watch Mirren's very lovely acceptance speech,

I'd rather have tea with Helen myself, but if it's true that would be awesome. You'd think the Queen would have seen the movie and like Helen Mirren's performance.

Helen Mirren is classy. Wonder if she will share the gold star with Queen Elizabeth when they have tea?
