London - Dame Helen Mirren loves getting "a jolly good spanking".

The 69-year-old actress featured in a comedic 'Snow White' parody entitled ‘Mirren Mirren on the Wall’ on 'The Tonight Show' on Monday evening, in which host Jimmy Fallon asked the star several questions to which she replied with some saucy answers.

When asked for her opinion on the upcoming ’50 Shades of Grey’ film, Helen – who has been married to US director Taylor Hackford since 1997 - quipped: “Well, whips and chains are not my style. But who doesn’t love a jolly good spanking once in a while?”

To a further question about what she orders at the high street sandwich chain Subway, the Academy Award winner cheekily responded with another innuendo.

She joked: “My motto in life is you can never go wrong, by treating yourself to a nice foot-long.”

The 'Calendar Girls' star - who celebrated her birthday last month - appeared alongside ‘Avatar’ director James Cameron on the show to celebrate its 100th episode.

Elsewhere in the sketch, Helen admitted that she is a fan of cult-film ‘Sharknado’ and revealed her dream job would be to be a contestant on 'American Ninja Warrior'. - BANG Showbiz
