Watch this hilarious clip of Helen Mirren as she reenacts her Academy Awards acceptance speech after inhaling helium.

We often hear of so many actresses who become divas after winning an Oscar.

Thankfully Helen Mirren isn’t one of them.

The 69-year-old award-winning actress got up to some hilarious antics and has us in stitches on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon this week.

After Fallon, a notorious prankster, convinced her to inhale helium so he could hear her voice, which he believed sounded ‘posh, in a high pitch, the British screen legend decided to take things up a notch.

She suggested he should pretend to give her an award at which point she decided to inhale some more helium and playfully reenact her 2007 Academy Awards speech for The Queen.

Safe to say the video has been doing the rounds on the internet and social media spheres and we’re very glad to share this little bit of fun really, with all of you.
