Dame Helen Mirren was date-raped twice when she was younger


The 63-year-old actress – who won an Oscar for her performance in ‘The
Queen’ – revealed she was too scared to say no and forced to have sex.
Helen said: “I was date-raped, yes. A couple of times. Not with excessive
violence, but rather being locked in a room and made to have sex against my
will. If a woman voluntarily ends up in man’s bedroom with her clothes off…
it's such a tricky area, isn't it? Especially if there is no violence. I
think she has the right to say no at the last second. But I don’t think she
can have that man in court under those circumstances.
“I guess it is one of the many subtle parts of the men/women relationship
that has to be negotiated and worked out between them.
“I was polite and didn't have the courage to say that to men who wouldn't
accept ‘no’ for an answer.
I was very innocent when I went to college in London. I went to a convent
school and had never spent a night away from home or gone to parties or any
of that.
Helen, who is married to American director Taylor Hackford, also revealed
she used to regularly take the class A drug cocaine when she was in her 30s.
She decided to quit when Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie was uncovered as a
drugs baron.
When she was asked if she had ever taken any illegal substances, Helen added
to GQ magazine: “A bit of dope when I was younger. A bit of cocaine. I loved
coke. I never did a lot, just a little bit at parties.
“But what ended it for me was when they caught Klaus Barbie, the Butcher of
Lyon, in the early 80s. He was hiding in South America and living off the
proceeds of being a cocaine baron. And I read that in the paper, and all the
cards fell into place and I saw how my little sniff of cocaine at a party
had an absolute direct route to this f***ing horrible man in South America.
“And from that day I never touched cocaine again. Until that moment I had
never grasped the full horrifying structure of what brings coke to our
parties in Britain.”
