Without thinking about it twice, I can safely say that Dame Judi Dench is one of the most badass actresses out there. By most people, the 82-year-old actress and author is recognized by her role as 007’s superior, M, in the James Bond series of films. Currently, she’s working on a new film, Victoria & Abdul, a movie about Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal)’s arrival from India at Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee, and you can probably already guess who’s playing Queen Victoria. In the directing chair of this film is Stephen Frears.
A journalist asked Dench if she had any new hobbies, because, you know, being a critically acclaimed actress is apparently not enough. Fazal immediately jumped in to drop a huge bombshell that no one would have ever expected.
“She owns a fidget spinner. Judi Dench owns a fidget spinner! It’s the coolest damn thing,” the 30-year-old Lucknow, India-born actor told the press. Dame Judi proceeded to calmly pull the fidget spinner out of her purse.
Needless to say, this story quickly made it to the internet and Twitter’s reactions to Dench’s fidget spinner were a sight to behold.

And to add to the awesomeness, it’s also a comically small fidget spinner, which makes things all the more awesome.
Yup, my mother is one cool chick ❤️

As this tweet says, the dame wasn’t afraid to spin it either.
With all of the crappiness going in, it’s strangely comforting that Dame Judy Dench has a fidget spinner (and isn’t afraid to spin it). pic.twitter.com/bripZWrw92

While the fidget spinner train seems to have stopped boiling its logs for now, Dame Judi Dench could be the one to throw the colored logs back into the boiler and make this train run free once again. Yeah, let’s see how many of you will get that [completely unrelated] reference.
I have loathed the fidget spinner craze but now that I know Dame Judi Dench has one, I’m all aboard this train.
