Find out who 2014 BAFTA Fellowship winner Dame Helen Mirren has loved in her life!

Dame Helen Mirren has had a wild life: Theatre! Sex! Cocaine! Pink hair! A longstanding fear of childbirth!

This year's BAFTA Fellowship goes to the 68-year-old star of The QueenRedCaligula and more — and we can't think of a more interesting actress more deserving of the honor.

Born Illiana Lydia Petrovna Mironova on July 26, 1945, Mirren told GQ she frequently used cocaine at parties in her 20s. Prior to receiving this year's BAFTA Fellowship, Mirren won an Academy Award for Best Actress, four BAFTAs, three Golden Globes, four Emmy Awards, and two Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Awards. Oh, and she received damehood in 2003!

Although Mirren has stated she has "no maternal instinct whatsoever," she does play the role of stepmother to husband Taylor Hackford's two children. Get to know all the men who've been lucky enough to love the stage and screen legend IRL!

Peter O'Toole
Peter O'Toole met Dame Helen Mirren on the set of Caligula, one of the most scandalous (and critically panned) movies of its time. The late O'Toole and Mirren were rumored to date, but they're more known for their screen legend statuses than their romance.

Liam Neeson
Helen Mirren and Liam Neeson lived together in the '80s, and he credits her with getting him an agent. Say a silent prayer of thanks to the Queen every time you watch Taken.

Taylor Hackford
London-born Helen Mirren has been with American director Taylor Hackford since 1986. Although she once vowed against marriage, the couple wed on New Year's Eve 1997 -- her first marriage and his third. Double champagne toast, anyone? They now reside in both Los Angeles and London.
