In an interview with The Guardian, Mirren cited the "shameless women" like Kardashian and Pussy Riot as role models for a new, bigger definition of beauty thanks to their rejection of the label "slut."
Mirren admitted she wasn't a fan of the Kardashians, but admired their role in making big butts acceptable, saying, "it’s wonderful that you’re allowed to have a butt nowadays.
"Thanks to Madame Kardashian, and before her, J-Lo, we’re also allowed to have thighs now, which is great too. It’s very positive,” she said. “When I was growing up, it was thought to be unbelievably sluttish to even have a bra strap showing,” Mirren said. “Everything was about women conforming. I love shameless women. Shameless and proud!"
