Helen Mirren


Helen Mirren is an accomplished British actress (of Russian ancestry) with a pretty impressive resume. She has played sexy young women, middle aged, attractive & sophisticated women (Prime Suspect era), and now she plays older, wiser and still sexy women. She is head and shoulders above many of her peers. Maybe the secret is that she is a naturally beautiful woman who aged remarkably. She might not have been A number 1 at age 25 (she was striking), but she has aged far more gracefully than her acting competition, and whatever work she has had done, has been amazing. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. She has most likely had work done, but still looks herself and isn't hiding how old she is. She does not look like a hat rack or bean pole, and she has hips. She turns sixty five later this month; see below and remember 65.
