Brand said that when he found himself with an extra pair of briefs during an impromptu outfit change on-set, he quickly offered Mirren his spare underwear. "On the last day of filming I was running late, so I just shoved on a yellow pair of American Apparel underpants. At the end of filming I rushed back to my dressing room and spotted a black pair and thought I'd change," the Daily star quoted him, as saying.
"As I rushed out of the dressing room I came face-to-face with Helen, still holding my dirty pants head high. That's when I heard my voice saying: ''Would you like these?'' She took them and said ''Thank you''. Why? Because she was being polite because she's a Dame," he added.
