Actor WILLIAM H. MACY is full of praise for Oscar-nominated actress DAME Helen Mirren - because she has a tendency to strip off in each of her movie roles. Mirren, who is the favourite to win the Best Actress Academy Award at this year's (FEB07) Oscars ceremony for her role as British monarch ELIZABETH II in THE QUEEN, has previously bared all in 2003's Calendar Girls and 1989's THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE + HER LOVER. However, her former DOOR TO DOOR co-star appears to have forgotten the 61-year-old's recent conservatism in The Queen, which focuses on the difficult week following the death of DIANA, Princess Of Wales in 1997, and prefers to drool over raunchy roles from the past. He says, "There is a lot to like about Dame Helen Mirren. She's a babe, she's funny and she's known for dropping her knickers in every film."
