Actress Challenges Helen Mirren To ‘Queen-Off’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Helen Mirren won an Oscar for playing Queen Elizabeth but that doesn’t mean she’s the best royal impersonator.

In fact, British actress Diz White is challenging Mirren to a “Queen-Off” to determine who does the best Queen Elizabeth impression.

White has been portraying the Queen for years, even doing a a striptease dressed as the British monarch.

White says Mirren did a good job in The Queen, but the portrayal was, perhaps, “far softer than the real Elizabeth.”

Therefore, White wants a “Monarch Match-Up” where she and Mirren compete in events like “handbagging,” where they see who can hit their minions the hardest with a handbag; and “royal tossing,” where they each grab a Sarah Ferguson-lookalike by the ankles and throw her as far as possible.

White also wants to measure her and Mirren’s upper lips to determine which one is the stiffest.

So far, Mirren hasn’t accepted the challenge, but White promises to donate any proceeds to the real Queen’s pet charity: the Royal Society of Prevention to Cruelty to Animals.
