Dame Helen Mirren paid tribute to Barbie in an iconic pink jumper four months on from the film’s record-breaking success as she stopped by a London co-working space on Wednesday.
The Academy Award-winning actress, 78, gave regulars a treat as she rocked up to The Nest in Wapping, a public co-working space.
Her long-sleeved jumper was emblazoned diagonally with ‘Barbie’ in bright yellow letters and its sleeves also had yellow hems.
She kept her hair out of her face with a black knot headband and wore her huge diamond wedding ring.
Helen narrated Greta Gerwig’s fantasy comedy film Barbie which grossed over $1.4 billion at box office, becoming the highest-grossing film by a female director.

Heard but not seen: Helen played the narrator in the film and was pictured in a London open office looking through a script for her upcoming film
Barbie is now also Warner Bros.’ highest-grossing film, ending the 12-year run Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part Two.
Helen splits her time between London and Hollywood, and has a house in East London.
She had just left Cherryduck Studios when she decided to do some extra work.
Helen picked up her large glass cup of coffee and prepared to take a sip – all while keeping her eyes on the contents of her laptop.
The script she was so intently reading may be for 1923, an ongoing American Western drama series from Paramount+ and led by Helen and Harrison Ford.
It began airing in December 2022 and also stars the fourth James Bond, Timothy Dalton, and Game Of Thrones’ Jerome Flynn.
Aside from this and Barbie, Helen starred in biopic Golda this year wear she played the eponymous character Golda Weir, prime minister of Israel from 1969 to 1974.
She faced backlash for this role, and was accused of ‘jewface’, as she is not Jewish and used prosthetics to more resemble Golda.

Helen Mirren is married to director Taylor Hackford, who used to be the president of the Directors Guild Of America.
The two met in 1985 when Taylor directed Helen in musical drama White Nights, but the two did not get on, with Helen being uncharacteristically cold with him.
Helen’s behaviour may have had something to do with the breaking down of her five-year relationship with Liam Neeson.
Regardless, Helen and Taylor eventually hit it off and have been married since 1997, with Helen becoming step-mother two Taylor’s two children from his two previous marriages.
