Dame Helen Mirren loves Vin Diesel

Dame Helen Mirren has a crush on Vin Diesel.

The Oscar-winning actress, 69, admits she is "a little bit in love" with the 'Furious 7' star and thinks he is "just so smart and so funny and so cool."

Asked about the latest action film, the British star said: "I'm a huge fan of Vin Diesel. It came from me watching him make a speech once at some ceremony. He was just so smart and so funny and so cool. And I just sort of fell a little bit in love with him right there and then."

The 'Woman in Gold' star then turned to the camera on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' to send a special message to the 47-year-old star, saying: "Vin, I love you. I love you, Vin. You don't know who I am, but I still love you."

The 'Queen' star also respects the fact Vin does a lot of his own stunts.

She said: "I love doing my own stunt driving. I've done a little bit. I did drive my own Land Rover as the Queen, which is kind of stunt driving. I had to get stuck in a river and did that all by myself. There is 'Prime Suspect' - I did a little bit of stunt driving on that, sort of.

"I got a very good time on 'Top Gear'."
