British actress Dame Helen Mirren has ripped Ivanka Trump for being vapid, out-of-touch, and for not living up to her promise to advocate for women's issues as one of her father's most trusted advisers.
"[Ivanka] talks a good game, but there's no substance," Mirren told Allure magazine. "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 added Melania Trump could undermine her husband's presidency with subtle forms of resistance, like swatting away his outstretched hand like she did during their trip to Israel.
"You look at old Mel there, and she is one of the most powerful women in the world because she could take him down," the Academy Award, Emmy Award, and Tony Award winner said. "She almost did that with the hand."
Mirren, who has gained a reputation for not mincing her words during her illustrious career in theatre and film, also slammed President Trump for being self-interested rather than presidential.
"[Trump] just said and did whatever it took to get what he desired," she said. "That is quite terrifying, because it means there's a lack of morality there and a lack of conscientiousness."
