We all know Helen Mirren for her delightful sense of humor, moving performances and, thanks to Saturday Night Live, her "legendary" breasts, though the latter will be covered from now on, she's decided. The 70-year-old Oscar- and Tony-winning actress has officially declared her days of baring all for the camera over.
In an interview with Alan Cumming for CBS, Mirren said that there's a benefit of aging. "You don't have to do that sort of thing anymore...[Now] my pleasure pillows are purely for my husband." She previously appeared nude in 1979's Caligula and more recently in a 2011 photo shoot for New York Magazine.
Mirren said that she remembers not thinking much of appearing nude when she first began her career. "It was the era," she said. "It seemed to be nothing to get your knickers in a twist over." Though, as she notes, it doesn't seem to mean much today either. "Now, with Game of Thrones," she said, "[nudity is] on at eight o'clock at night and everything's a sex scene."
