Helen Mirren stopped by Madame Tussauds in London on Tuesday for the unveiling of a wax figure in her likeness -- a doppelganger even more double take inducing than George Lopez‘s statue at the Hollywood branch of the museum.

‘My husband wants to marry her,’ Mirren said, speaking of hubby Taylor Hackford, the film director and USC graduate. ‘I’m much more argumentative than she is.’ Mirren donated the gown, which she wore to an award show in 2008.

Our thoughts couldn’t help but drift back to January’s Golden Globe Awards, at which James Cameron was rocking his best impersonation of Mirren’s hairdo. Dare we say, wax or no wax, the dame wears it much better.
