Sir Michael, who was then in his 30s, went on to tell her that she was an “in quotes, a serious actress” and asked if her “equipment” undermined her credibility. “Your figure”, he added when questioned by the actress what he meant. “Serious actresses can’t have big bosoms, is that what you mean?” she replied, outraged. He also quoted a review that described her as “projecting sluttish eroticism” during the encounter, which Dame Helen later described as “enraging” and “extremely creepy”.Yesterday, in an interview with Event magazine, Sir Michael admitted that he might have been a “bit over-reactive” but defended his comments. He also denied that his attitude was sexist, saying: “You have to judge it by what happened in that time. If you didn’t live in that time, you’re not allowed an opinion in my view.”He continued: “Am I a sexist? No, I’m Yorkshire. I’ve been married for 57 years so something must be going right.”Their television clash has prompted years of questions, with both Dame Helen and Sir Michael talking about it in previous interviews. The actress, now 71, later told The Telegraph: “That’s the first talk show I’d ever done. I was terrified. I watched it and I actually thought, bloody hell!

In an interview with Event magazine, Sir Michael admitted that he might have been a “bit over-reactive” but defended his commentsCredit:Bryn Lennon/Getty Images Recalling the spat with Dame Helen, which began when she appeared on his talk show in 1975, Sir Michael described their confrontation as “good television” and said it had not been resolved because: “I don’t want to make up and nor does she.”He also refused to accept his comments were sexist, arguing: “If you didn’t live in that time, you’re not allowed an opinion.” His refusal to apologise comes more than four decades after the uncomfortable exchange, which began when the talk show host introduced Dame Helen – then a young actress who had played lead roles in Miss Julie and A Midsummer’s Nights Dream – as the “sex queen” of the Royal Shakespeare Company. He said: “She presented a provocative figure as she walked down the stairs carrying a feather boa, half dressed as I recall, with love and hate tattooed onto her knuckles. I would not have done my duty as a human being had I not reacted in a certain way.”I mean, we didn’t like each other. We have not done much since to repair the damage, but that sometimes happens in life.”When asked if there was a chance the pair could make up, he said: “I don’t want to. Nor does she. I don’t regard what happened as being anything other than good television. There is no need to apologise, not at all.”She didn’t want to do an interview and after about ten minutes I didn’t want to interview her. There’s no problem, it’s not World War III for God’s sake.” “I did really well. I was so young and inexperienced. And he was such a f—— sexist old fart. He was. He denies it to this day that it was sexist, but of course he was.”Last year, Dame Helen, who has described interest in her body as “prurient”, also reflected on how sexism remained a problem throughout the 1970s.She said: “That decade, after the sexual revolution but before feminism, was perilous for women. Men saw that as a sort of “Oh fantastic! We can f*** anything, however we like, whenever we like. They’re up for grabs, boys!” In the interview, he quoted a review that described her as “projecting sluttish eroticism” Their disagreement was first sparked more than 40 years ago, when Michael Parkinson dared to suggest to an up-and-coming Helen Mirren that her figure may undermine her credibility as an actress. But the clash, which prompted a huge sexism row and saw the pair ignore each other for decades, has little chance of repair – at least according to the presenter, who claims he has nothing to apologise for.

Add to that a child who is gay, and coping with not only his or her own sexuality, but the effect on those close to him, like parents and friends.Psychotherapist John Sovec will address this issue February 20 as part of the Fusion Academyâ€™s Professional Speaker series. The interactive workshop will provideexploration, discussion, and tools to address the challenging issues facing LGBT teens as they discover their own sexuality.John Sovec, MA, LMFT, specializes in working with LGBT teens and their families during the coming-out process. He is a nationally recognized expert on LGBT teens and has been seen on the Ricki Lake Show, YHTV, The Advocate, Good Therapy and other programs.â€œThis is something that early on in my career I ran into, while working with LGBT teens who felt totally unsupported in their lives and their community,â€ Sovec explained.â€œI started looking around and had to explore to find training to specialize in this, and be able to put together a strong set of skills. But in doing that, I realized there are very few people out there doing what I thought there was a need for. I work with family service agencies, schools, and fellow psychology professionals to help train them and educate them as well as offer seminars for teachers and staff,â€ said Sovec.A young gay teen will face challenges at school and at home, as Sovec explains. â€œIf you really think about it, theyâ€™re living between their own developing LGBT identity and an environment where everything is skewed towards, â€˜Okay, this is a straight world, this is how it is,â€™â€ he said.Sovec adds, â€œThereâ€™s no straight teen who has to come out and say, â€œBy the way, Iâ€™m straight.â€And while parents might be accepting, the challenge can go beyond that, says Sovec.â€œA lot of parents will come to me and say, â€˜But they know that it wouldnâ€™t be a problem.â€™ But thatâ€™s not the point. The point is actually that moment for that kid to say it out loud, how it will influence how their parents view them, what will it do to their school environment, because there will be some kids who will be comfortable with it, and some that may bully them and make fun of them, and how will teachers accept it? What about if theyâ€™re on a sports team? How will the team or the coach accept it? So thereâ€™s a lot of fear that comes out for these kids really looking at, â€˜Iâ€™m making a statement about myself, and once I make that statement, I canâ€™t take it back and itâ€™s going to have huge repercussions on the community that I live, work and play in,â€™â€ he explained.Sovecâ€™s workshop will explore the realm of teen gay sexuality, as he explained, saying, â€œWeâ€™re actually going to be looking at some of the real basic things, all of the different flavors of sexuality and sexual identity that are out there right now. Weâ€™re going to look at the developmental phase that happens in the coming out process. Weâ€™re going to look at what your kid is going through when theyâ€™re in the process of coming out and the stages of that. And weâ€™re going to explore how the families, and adults and caring professionals can support that journey and be present with our kids.â€Sovec realizes that coming out today is vastly different from even one or two generations ago, but says, â€œI think for each family that goes through it, it really is a very individual experience. A lot of kids will decide that there is one parent who it would be easier for them to come out to first, and then theyâ€™ll practice that and then come out to the other parent later on.â€œAnd I really think it depends a lot on the parents upbringing themselves,â€ he continued, â€œas well as cultural and spiritual components. Weâ€™re lucky because weâ€™re in Pasadena, or Los Angeles, big cities where coming out is a more normalized experience. But when we move out of the bigger metropolitan areas, it still is a really challenging story for these kids to go through this.â€Sovec continued, â€œHere in Pasadena, a lot of kids kind of initially come out as bisexual, and strangely enough itâ€™s a cool thing to do these days. And, I think for kids come out as, being a gay or lesbian, it really does depend on the environment, their family their friends, and their school, as to how theyâ€™re accepted.â€John Sovec will present his workshop at Fusion Academy February 20, at 6:30 p.m.Fusion AcademyPasadena is at 825 Colorado Bl., Suite 118, Los Angeles.To learn more about his work visit www.JohnSovec.com or www.GayTeenTherapy.comFusion Academy is a fully accredited, private, middle and high school where all classes are taught one to one.
