Party pooper Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren hates the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.

The Oscar-winning actress - who lives in Los Angeles with husband Taylor Hickford - is not interested in walking the red carpets because she prefers to concentrate on her career.

She said: "I do live in Hollywood with my husband, but I can't be doing all that partying stuff. I just do the work I'm asked to do and that's it."

Helen - who starred as Britain's Queen Elizabeth I in hit TV miniseries 'Elizabeth I' and Britain's Queen Elizabeth II in 2006 movie 'The Queen' - also revealed she is ready to take on another regal character.

She added to Britain's BBC Radio 2: "I'd love to play Queen Catherine of Russia next - another queen! She was a very interesting character."

Queen Catherine II of Russia reigned as the Empress of Russia for 34 years from June 1762 until she died in 1796. She never married but had a series of lovers, including Sergei Saltykov who was the father of her son Paul.
