Helen Mirren had a pajama party with prostitutes to research a movie role!
Dame Helen Mirren spent a night
with prostitutes to research her
role in forthcoming film Love Ranch,
WENN reports September 8th.
The actress directs and stars in
the movie as the madame of
Nevada’s first legalised brothel.
And she prepared for the part by
staying over at the state’s infamous
Mustang Ranch in order to learn
more about the vice trade.
“I researched the whole notion
of a brothel and went to a legal
brothel in Nevada.
“I loved the girls and the madame
was wonderful –
she became our advisor.
She was invaluable –
a wonderful woman.”
And Mirren has reasserted her belief
that prostitution should be legalised
across the US and the UK.
“I am a complete believer in legal brothels.
The girls are protected and free and it
takes out that horrible situation
of pimps and drugs.
“Also the men who go there know
the girls are medically checked and
it is very carefully controlled –
everyone is in a safe environment.
“I don’t think you are ever going to get
rid of prostitution so you might as well
make it as safe as possible.”
