Inspiration for the day: Dame Helen Mirren

On why she wishes she’d told people to “f*** off” more:

She explained that the phrase is empowering to women especially because we’re so often taught to be polite in every circumstance. “We were sort of brought up to be polite and sometimes politeness, in certain circumstances, is not what’s required,” she said. “You’ve got to have the courage to stand up for yourself occasionally when it’s needed.”

And just check out the archive of Helen Mirren-related posts on Tom & Lorenzo. Pure awesome.
