Helen Mirren stole the show at this year’s SAG Awards. The legendary actress took this opportunity to share some great anecdotes, including one about how she chased a real bear while she was quarantined in Nevada!
It all started with a number of actors telling their own stories about the isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic.

It prompted Mirren to talk about something memorable that happened to her at the time as well, which was that she chased a bear away, believe it or not!
‘I once met a bear. I was so excited to see a bear, but of course you cannot allow bears to become too familiar with humans because they are wild animals. So I chased him away. ‘
But how did she manage to get rid of the huge wild animal?

Well, the star said she just said it, “ You bad bear, go on. Go away!’ And he did. ‘
And that wasn’t the only personal story she shared on the Awards show.
During the ceremony, Dame Mirren also gushed over Pen15, emphasizing that she ‘thinks that’s just so funny’.
She also joked that her personal SAG Award is having a “ steamy affair ” with another big trophy she’d received: her Oscar picture!
“I catch them together and I swear to God I didn’t put them together,” Mirren told the audience.
The celeb even thought about an iconic old portrait photo, and used that as a fashion lesson for others: ‘Oh, you shouldn’t wear those boots with that skirt. That was a terrible idea. ‘
But Mirren had another advice that was mainly aimed at young actors, but that of course can apply to anyone, in any situation or industry: “Be on time and don’t be a ** hole.” Wise words!
