Helen Mirren trips at the Berlin Film Festival as she walked the red carpet with Ryan Reynolds. Mirren, 69, arrived in a chauffeur-driven car. She then stepped out it to sign autographs for fans. Helen was left red-faced after she stumbled on her gorgeous green lace gown on the red carpet as she made her way into the screening of her forthcoming film, according to Canada Journal.

Taking the event in her stride, the stunning actress then posed for the world’s media with a huge smile on her face. Her vivid green dress had a beautiful train with a scalloped edge - when fanned out the train made quite an impression. But it was clearly causing Helen Mirren a few issues as she walked from her car to the steps to enter the festival.

Taking one step up the flight, the Prime Suspect actress oozed style and confidence. But the next foot forward went a little wrong and Helen fell forward, putting out her hands to catch herself. Gracefully landing on her hands and knees, Mirren composed herself before continuing up the steps with the help of a gentleman to the side.

The star carried on upstairs and into the festival where she was met by her co-star Ryan Reynolds. Helen Mirren is renowned for her wicked sense of humor and will, no doubt, laugh at her fall up the stairs. In a nutshell, the actress styled out the accident with good grace, jokingly wagging a finger at the photographers who captured her stumble, according to Hello Magazine.

Speaking at a press conference for the movie, she was emotional when talking about the painting which features a woman named Amalie Zuckerkandl.

“It’s beautiful and Amalie died in a death camp. That woman, just a few years after that picture was painted died in a death camp,” she told reporters.

“And there is her portrait up on the wall in the Belvedere and in a way I found that just the most emotional thing to see because now her portrait is on the wall in one of the most important galleries in Germany, and yet that woman died in a death camp,” Helen Mirren added. “To me that brings together the whole story together in one image.”

In the movie, Mirren plays a Jewish refugee named Maria Altmann who is determined to recover her family’s painting by Gustav Klimt which was stolen by the Nazi and ends up in Austria. Ryan Reynolds plays a lawyer who helps her.

Apart from Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds, the movie stars Katie Holmes, Daniel Bruhl, Tatiana Maslany, Frances Fisher and Charles Dance among others, notes OK Magazine. The Simon Curtis-directed drama is set for release in the U.S. on April 3.
