London: Dame Helen Mirren has kept a rather sexy memento to remember her `The Tempest` co-star Russell Brand — his underwear, and she got into his pants, literally.
"He was leaving and he was coming to say goodbye and he had a pile of books and papers (from his trailer) and on top of all these things were a pair of bright yellow, canary yellow underpants - Y-fronts,” a news daily quoted her as saying.
"I grabbed them and said, `Russell, I`m having those as my little memento of working with you,’” she added.
In fact, she revealed, "I put them on occasionally."
Mirren has said that she thoroughly enjoyed working with the outrageous funnyman and she can``t wait to work with him again when she plays his nanny/butler in the upcoming ‘Arthur’ remake.
She added: "He`s a great guy... He`s very sweet. He`s got a very good heart and I loved working with him."
