It's hard to imagine actress Helen Mirren having many regrets in life.

After all, this is a woman who has won an Oscar, a Tony and several Emmy Awards, has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

Not to mention she's bad-ass feminist who dyed her hair candy floss pink after watching a model do it on America's Next Top Model.

But this week the Clinton campaign group Humanity for Hillary released a video of Mirren warning Americans not to be left with the same regrets some of us Brits had after finding out we'd voted to leave the European Union earlier this summer. The leave vote won with a 52% majority, while almost 30% of Brits failed to exercise their right to vote.

Discussing life's lost opportunities, Helen addressed American viewers to say all their regrets will 'pale in comparison to the regret' they'll feel after November 8th if they don't vote.'

'This was not only a hit to our economy but to our humanity because this was a vote cast in fear, rather than hope,' she explains.

She then urges viewers to vote to avoid 'abstainers regret'.

'Because love must trump hate,' she concluded.

The video comes days after the British star accepted an award at the ELLE Women in Hollywood event in Los Angeles and told the audience: 'To make you proud that you chose to honour me tonight, I am going to be the nastiest of all nasty women,' referring to Trump's description of Clinton during the third presidential debate.
