Helen Mirren arrived at the Johnny Depp movie Jeanne du Barry by wearing an enchanting blue dress and matching it with her dyed hair at the Cannes film festival.

Previously, strong supporters of the Aquaman star used the #AmberIsWorthIt hashtag in her high-profile case against the 59-year-old last June.
However, the veteran actor poured cold water on hot speculations, saying, “No secret message was intended,” adding, “I am a L’Oréal ambassador, they are a sponsor of the festival, and quite truthfully, I picked up a fan because I was hot. ‘Because You’re Worth It’ is the official L’Oréal Paris slogan.”
