Helen Mirren's 45-Year-Old Stepson Got Mistaken for Her 71-Year-Old Husband at the SAG Awards
By Antoinette Bueno
People mistaking Helen Mirren's stepson for her husband happened multiple times at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday.
Helen brought her stepson, 45-year-old actor Rio Hackford, as her date to this year's SAG Awards, and plenty of people -- including photo agencies -- just assumed he was her husband, 71-year-old director Taylor Hackford. Of course, aside from Helen being a total babe at 70, it also doesn't help that father and son look incredibly similar, right down to the same white facial hair.

"That's the good thing about getting older, you don't have to do that sort of thing anymore," Helen told actor Alan Cumming during a CBS interview in September. "My pleasure pillows are purely for my husband."
Last April, her Woman in Gold co-star, Ryan Reynolds, gushed about experiencing the actress' famous allure firsthand. "Everybody who meets her flirts with her," he told Vulture. "I don't care who you are -- guy, girl, fat, skinny, tall, short, gay, straight -- everybody flirts with Helen Mirren."
