*Dame Helen Mirren was singled out and gushed over by the President of the United States during his White House Correspondent’s Dinner speech, but for the beloved actress on Saturday night – it was all about Prince.
Not only did the British treasure show up in a bright purple gown in honor of the late musician, but she also sported a tattoo of his symbol, prominently displayed just below her clavicle — which she made a point to show photographers.
“I admire great artists and he was a great artist,” Mirren said of the temporary tatt, which she drew herself, according to The Washington Post’s Roxanne Roberts.
Mirren says she wishes the drawing had a cooler story. “I’d love to say that Prince himself did it in 1988 or something, instead of me in the bathroom this morning,” Mirren told WaPo’s Emily Heil.
