The Queen on why she hates women interviewers

Helen Mirren, the British actress who won the Oscar for playing The Queen, on why she likes to be interviewed by male reporters, in The Sunday Times magazine:

“I prefer male journalists because there’s a streak of female journalism—the bitches—who are mean-spirited and nasty because you are another woman and want to make you feel crap.

“It’s very upsetting.

“I’m more careful when I’m being interviewed by a woman because, from experience as well as reading articles about other women, I know there is a little stiletto knife hidden behind the back.”
