Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren says she and legendary director Alfred Hitchcock had a mutual dislike for one another after they met in the 1970s.
The 67-year-old actress was not a fan of the horror filmmaker when she was considered for a role in his 1972 thriller "Frenzy", and he thought she was too high-maintenance to join the cast, reported Daily Express.
"When I was a very young actress, just starting out, I was sent for an audition - or a meeting with him. I don't think he would have auditioned me; I think he either thought you looked right or you didn't. I was arrogant and ignorant and, at that time, he was just not my kind of film director. I was into Federico Fellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Roberto Rossellini; those were the directors I loved.
