Helen Mirren Does Not Approve Of Your Boyfriend's "Arm Draping"

Helen Mirren is indeed a wisewoman. So when she doles out a bit of feminist advice, it's probably worth a listen. In a recent interview with The Daily Mail she revealed why she thinks guys should keep their arms to themselves on the street.

She explained, "'It annoys me when I see men with an arm slung round their girlfriend’s shoulders. It’s like ownership." Ownership might seem like a bit of a stretch, but she has a point about the power of body language. Even if a couple was rocking the same height, it would look odd for a girl to become an arm-scarf across her BF's shoulders.

The interview was full of gems beyond her strong opinions about arm draping. She also had a particularly great piece of advice for her younger self and it's something her fans will surely appreciate. "At 70 years old, if I could give my younger self one piece of advice, it would be to use the words 'f*** off' much more frequently," she said.

Words to live by.
