Alfred Hitchcock hated me: Helen Mirren
The actress was not a fan of the horror filmmaker when she was considered for a role in his 1972 thriller 'Frenzy'.

London: Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren says she and legendary director Alfred Hitchcock had a mutual dislike for one another after they met in the 1970s.

The 67-year-old actress was not a fan of the horror filmmaker when she was considered for a role in his 1972 thriller 'Frenzy', and he thought she was too high-maintenance to join the cast, reported Daily Express.

"When I was a very young actress, just starting out, I was sent for an audition - or a meeting with him. I don't think he would have auditioned me; I think he either thought you looked right or you didn't. I was arrogant and ignorant and, at that time, he was just not my kind of film director. I was into Federico Fellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Roberto Rossellini; those were the directors I loved.

"I was, you know, as one is when one is young, just ridiculously self-opinionated. So, I didn't really like him, and I know he didn't like me very much. He certainly didn't cast me. He took one look at me and went, 'Oh, good God. She's going to be a nightmare.' I didn't want to do it because all those roles were horrible anyway," she said.
