Helen Mirren, 77, gazed longingly at her devoted husband Taylor Hackford, 77, as they attended The American French Film Festival awards ceremony in Neuilly-sur-Seine on Wednesday night.
The British actress looked amazing in a black sheer ensemble, teamed with a black headband over her long white locks and wore a matching lace jacket.
She also sported a mesh dress, cranberry tights and Baroque-style booties selected by stylist Rachel Fanconi.
Meanwhile, Helen’s husband Taylor donned a two-piece black suit, paired with a white shirt and teal tie.
Helen and the film director have been married since 1997, with the pair meeting after her breakthrough role in the 1980s film The Long Good Friday.
Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford dated for ten years before tying the knot
Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford married in 1997 when they were both 41. The actress once shared her secret to a long-lasting relationship, coming from experience having been married to Taylor for over 25 years. She said: “You know, I believe in unconditional praise from one’s loved ones. I don’t want any criticism. And I give him unconditional praise likewise—more or less. We allow each other to do our own thing, and get on with it. A really important part of love is to maintain your own sense of identity. In a way, that’s the most important thing of all, to not subsume yourself into someone else, far from it. Be honestly and authentically who you are,” she revealed to the PEOPLE.
