I dreamed a dream: Les Misérables director Tom Hooper presented the age-defying acting icon with the statuette at the awards galaI dreamed a dream: Les Misérables director Tom Hooper presented the age-defying acting icon with the statuette at the awards gala’Actually we appreciate the lack of romance in the other person. I’d be completely horrified if Taylor gave me a Valentine’s card! That’s not our sort of relationship at all – we would pour cold water on that sort of thing,’ Dame Helen revealed.

‘We even forget to get each other birthday presents – I’m always thinking the day before, “Oh, I must get Taylor something for his birthday.” Without being corny, we try simply to be considerate to each other every day rather than lavishing each other with gifts.’

The festival runs from January 3-14 and Saturday night’s awards gala, emceed by Entertainment Tonight’s Mary Hart, honored several potential Academy Award contenders.
