Just in case we forgot that celebrities can act just like us sometimes, here comes Dame Helen Mirren with a reminder. The actress, who has Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe awards to her name, accepted a faux-award from “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon last night. The catch? Both sucked helium out of balloons before their impromptu presentation, making an otherwise mundane acceptance speech hilarious.

Mirren is currently starring in “The Audience” on Broadway and will headline the April release “The Woman in Gold,” but her celebrity status doesn’t preclude her from doing normal people things like commuting on the subway. Watch below as she tells Jimmy Fallon about her subway adventures.
