Stunning: The actress defied her 67 years at the star-studded event
Mirren has already won an Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, and SAG awards for her four-decade career.
The silver-haired beauty posed on the red carpet alongside a cherry red 2013 Mercedes-Benz – a sponsor for the fest – fellow Oscar winner Helen Hunt, and her director husband Taylor Hackford.
The age-defying actress, who has said she married for ‘economic reasons,’ recently told Woman & Home Magazine that she and her partner of 26 years aren’t romantic with each other.
‘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.
Aside from Mirren, the festival honored her best actress competitors Naomi Watts and Helen Hunt as well as Hooper, Richard Gere, Sally Field, Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, Bradley Cooper, Robert Zemeckis, and composer Mychael Danna.
The Excalibur star is currently being hailed for her performance alongside Anthony Hopkins in Hitchcock, in which she portrays the famous director’s wife Alma Reville.
The role has already won Dame Helen critical acclaim as well as nominations for the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards.
Another accolade: The Queen star accepted another prestigious honour on Thursday as she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
The Queen star described her character as the director’s ‘artistic and domestic rock.’She added. ‘People say there were four hands on Hitchcock’s movies and two of them were Alma’s.’
The London-born actress will soon star in a West End play that exposes some unlikely alliances between the Queen and a few of her 12 prime ministers, who stretch from David Cameron all the way back to Winston Churchill.
