Helen Mirren on how songs and paintings differ from acting

“As an actor I’m always jealous painters and indeed of singers because a song can travel straight into the heart the way a painting can. What I do has to be processed by the brain. People have to follow the story. It has to make sense. A song, just a note of a song, can make you feel something. I think likewise a painting can do the same thing.” — Helen Mirren in this video clip
