Helen Mirren Refused Free Plastic Surgery…. Mirren Angers Hometown Residents Dame Helen Mirren has angered locals by criticising her hometown of Leigh-On-Sea in England.

The Oscar nominee told a US interviewer last week (begs19Feb07) she hailed “from a little place called Leigh-on-Sea…the armpit of the world.”

Now residents of the town are bombarding their local newspaper with letters expressing disappointment at Mirren’s slur.

One letter to The Leigh Times reads: “I, as a local resident, will no longer look kinder on the (one-time) much loved local girl.”

Meeanwhile the star DAME Helen Mirren refused to accept free plastic surgery and Botox injections ahead of the Academy Awards in Los Angeles.

The 61-year-old, favourite to win Best Actress for her performance as British monarch Queen Elizabeth Ii in The Queen, received a free pre-Oscars goodie bag containing vouchers for free facial treatments.

But Mirren preferred to attend the event covering her wrinkles with the aid of make-up alone.

She said, “I’m very vain, which initially made playing Elizabeth Windsor in all those tweeds pretty daunting.

“But I’m not fond of all those needles and scalpels. I’ll try to get away with make-up, jewellery and a nice frock.”
