The Queen Prefers The Rolling Stones to The Beatles

(Gibson) In the battle of all-time great rock bands, Oscar-winning actress and international film star Helen Mirren has made it clear which side she's on. According to an interview with The Canadian Press, Mirren says she always has preferred The Rolling Stones to The Beatles.

While at the Toronto International Film Festival, Mirren discussed the '60s mod-rocker clashes that are depicted in her new film Brighton Rock. Although she has indistinct memories of those times, Mirren knows where her sympathies lie.

"I would've been more of a rocker than mod," she said. "I didn't like all those neat little [mod] suits and neat little haircuts. I liked the more rough and ready, and leather jackets and bikes and stuff like that."
