Helen Mirren Learns How to Punch From Evander Holyfield


Talking about the highlight of filming 'Arthur', the 'Red' actress admits she had the boxing champ giving her a little training on throwing a punch.

Oscar winner Helen Mirren ticked off another career highlight on the set of comedy "Arthur" - she landed boxing champ Evander Holyfield as a trainer. Holyfield has a cameo in the remake and Mirren decided to ask the fighter to show her how to throw a punch.

Mirren tells WENN, "Evander Holyfield was my personal trainer on the set. He is such a gentleman, but he is the champ and he's a big guy and quite scary, and he was very quiet on the set in the corner with his gang."

"So I went up to Evander and I said, 'I've got to punch co-star Russell (Brand), would you show me how to do it please?' He said, 'Sure'. And he gave me a little training, so that was one of the highlights of the shoot for me - being taught how to punch by Evander Holyfield."
