When things are dark, there is still Dame Judi Dench to cast a light!
Dench is currently promoting her new film Victoria & Abdul, in which she plays Queen Victoria yet again. During her press tour on Monday, a journalist asked if Dench had any new hobbies, because being one of the world's greatest living actresses isn't enough. Her co-star Ali Fazal jumped in to enlighten us all.
"She owns a fidget spinner. Judi Dench owns a fidget spinner! It's the coolest damn thing," he said. Calmly, Dench takes it out of her purse to show us, saying her grandson gave it to her.
What! Why is it so tiny? Why is she so great?
Naturally, the Internet went wild:
Alright. I'm going to bed now. Nothing else I'll see tonight will top this. ✌🏽— Ethan Alexander (@EthanAlexIndie) September 12, 2017

Maybe you've hated the fidget spinner craze this year, but there's something about the fact that even Judi Dench gets restless that anyone can find comforting.
