Helen Mirren 65, shares her body secrets

02 October 2010

Dame Helen Mirren graces the cover of UK Women & Home magazine this month but claims she is by no means happy with her body.

"Bits of my body are all right, but bits of me are horrible," the 65-year-old star tells the magazine. "To be honest, anything from the waist down I don't really like."

Mirren stunned the world after she was snapped looking toned in a red hot bikini in 2008. In truth, she insists she was holding in her tummy.

"I don't know why, but I do, by nature, hold my tummy in," she says, calling it a "trick for making you look and feel good."

She claims her secrets are four-inch platforms that give her great height and make her legs look unbelievably long plus she always sticks to dresses made with sleeves!

The Oscar winning actress can next be seen opposite Russell Brand in a remake of the '80s comedy classic Arthur.
