James Mars­den has ad­mit­ted to "stalk­ing" Dame He­len Mir­ren. In an ap­pear­ance to be broad­cast to­day on 'The Ellen De­generes Show', the 43-year-old ac­tor con­fesses to hav­ing a "mas­sive crush" on the 71-year-old Hol­ly­wood leg­end, who just so hap­pened to be ap­pear­ing as a guest on the same episode. Speak­ing to host Ellen, the 'West­world' ac­tor said: "I just love her, I do. I've had a mas­sive crush on her for years." The 'X-Men' star - who has three chil­dren, Jack, 15 and Mary, 11, with for­mer wife Lisa Linde, and three-year-old Wil­liam with model Rose Costa went on to ex­plain how he had "fol­lowed" 'The Queen' ac­tress af­ter they shared a flight to Rome. He con­tin­ued: "I was on a flight with her once to Rome, and when I got off the flight, I fol­lowed her ... to bag­gage claim, and in a very creepy voyeuris­tic way, I took a photo of her while she was walk­ing." When Ellen then pulled up the sly pic­ture James had taken, he couldn't stop him­self from cring­ing with em­bar­rass­ment. He said: "Very creepy. I was avoid­ing see­ing her back­stage be­cause I didn't want her to know that I was stalk­ing her in the Rome in­ter­na­tional air­port." In a twist that came as a shock to the 'Se­cond Noah' ac­tor, Ellen then urged He­len to "come on out" to meet James. The 'Caligula' star then treated James - who is 28 years her ju­nior - to a peck on the lips, as well as pos­ing for pho­tos with the star-struck ac­tor. Be­fore leav­ing the stage, He­len said to James: "Very nice to meet you. You're bril­liant, and you're so hand­some."
