'She talks a good game, but there's no substance': Dame Helen Mirren bashes Ivanka Trump and her 'ignorant' book, but highlights Melania's 'power' - and her ability to 'bring her husband down'.
Dame Helen Mirren has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and his administration, and the actress didn't hold back when it came to sharing his thoughts on his daughter's 'ignorant' book about working women.
Although Ivanka Trump has branded herself as a feminist who is dedicated to empowering women, 72-year-old icon and advocate for women's rights told Allure that she isn't buying it.
'[Ivanka] talks a good game, but theres no substance. Her book is so ignorant about how the majority of women live, talking about, "Make time for yourself to have a massage." Puh-lease,' Mirren said in reference to Women Who Work, Ivanka's latest book.
Women Who Work received scathing reviews from numerous publications that slammed the book for being tone-deaf when it came out in May this year.
In one excerpt, Ivanka discussed going into 'survival mode' while working on her father's presidential campaign, explaining that she didn't have time to treat herself to massages or meditate like she would have liked.
Critics found revelations like those to be cringe-worthy and oblivious to the realities that plague other working moms that don't have the financial means or outside help that Ivanka has.
Despite her obvious disdain for Ivanka, who works as her father's senior adviser, Mirren's feelings about First Lady Melania Trump are more mixed.

Yeah I go right to Helen Mirren for substance. /s
Actors, even British ones, aren’t generally Mensa members.
Yeah, I really dwell on every word of a 70 year old pornstar.
Helen you are a glittering jewel of colossal ignorance.
So we are not supposed to listen to a rich woman (like Ivanka)...but we are supposed to listen to a rich woman (like Helen)? Hmmmm....
I didn’t know she was still singing.
Screw her and the rest of Brits who think they control our county. Had a snoot FULL of them when I lived there. That’s why I became a conservative.
Ain’t No Way to Treat a Lady
A Dame claims to know how ordinary women live, and Ivanka Trump doesn’t, despite being on the campaign trail for months and running a business...riiight.
Know-it-all celebs are truly a dime a dozen.
They aren’t. But they would love you to think they are.
VERY bigoted people.
She seemed so nice. Now, “no”.
I suppose Mirren is unaware that many women actually like such activity? And that it is highly encouraged to take time out for oneself?
I've no idea who this Mirren is, and these statements do not give me any desire to find out. She's an idiot.
Helen Mirren’s late father was a Russian.
Mirren may be a good actress, but she is also a real Jezebel. That Trump seems to reveal this side in her and other feminazis, makes me like Trump more.
Says the woman who got nude on camera in six different decades.....
Everything Trump is just terrible. That is what the DNC-media says, what Hollywood says, what academia says, what the establishment says, and its all bullshit.
Every damn story is negative, every single one. So people stop believing it because it is impossible for every single Trump thing to be terrible. They just lie about Trump.
