How hard is it to step in Helen Mirren’s flats?
Not so tough if you’re the amazing Maria Bello. Helen “The Body” Mirren famously played no-nonsense Detective Jane Tennison in the British version of the hit series “Prime Suspect.”
Now, it’s Maria Bello who is bringing a new version of Jane to NBC this fall when “Prime Suspect” hits prime time.
MARIA BELLO ON BEAUTY
Personally, I love Maria Bello’s beauty advice. She’s one of those women who look effortlessly gorgeous in movies like “A History of Violence” and “World Trade Center.”
Don’t ever expect her to talk about products. Her beauty routine starts inside.
“Beauty is about someone who feels secure in who they are in life. I’m happy in my life. It shows on people if you’re happy,” says the single mother of a ten-year-old son.
MARIA’S PRIME LIFE
This summer she starred in the indie film “Beautiful Boy” and in September she plays Taylor Lautner’s mom in the upcoming “Abduction.” Of course, he’s the dark hair teen hottie in the “Twilight” movies.
“My 17 year old nice was with me when I found out I was doing the role. I said, ‘I’m playing the mother of some ‘Twilight’ kid. His name is Taylor.’
“She screamed, ‘Oh my God, and burst out crying.’”
“Everyday it was 300 screaming fans outside the set. I never want that kind of fame.”
As for her new TV series, she plays a tough detective on what’s destined to be a major ratings hit. Helen Mirren’s version of “Prime Suspect” is also so delicious that it warrants a rental or download during the waning days of summer
