Los Angeles Jane Lynch thinks Dame Helen Mirren is a ''vixen''.
The Glee actress doesn't find stereotypical beautiful women attractive, but admits she is more drawn to British actresses - with the star being a particular favourite.
She revealed: ''Someone like Helen Mirren [does something for me]: she's a vixen and she's got a potty mouth and she'd be crazy. When I met her, she was so immediately familiar and hilarious.
''What I love most about British actors is that they don't have to be beautiful to work. Remember Juliet Stevenson in Truly, Madly, Deeply? All those tears and all that snot coming out of her nose? She's beautiful in her own way but not classic looking.''
Jane, 52, has been happily married to her partner Lara Embry since 2010 and - although the couple are content - Jane is aware that certain strong-willed celebrities would make her wife jealous.
When asked if there are any actresses Lara would be worried about, Jane replied to Britain's Glamour magazine: ''Yes; Jennifer Saunders. I love actresses who make big choices, and she makes huge, gargantuan choices.''
