I'm sorry; were Helen's "pleasure pillows" (oh Helen, no) somehow deterring your movie going exploits?

What is she? 100? I could be blinded.

Not to pick only on the girls but I wish the 4 oldtimers from Space Cowboys would also take a similar pladge. (Im lookin at you Eastwood, Jones, Sutherland and Garner). If your skin looks like it needs ironing keep your clothes on please.

I agree, any scene with Sutherland naked should include Julie Christie.

Absolutely agree. And an excellent horror film too.

The linked article says there's a movie out/coming out that has her topless. Otherwise, it was a 2010 magazine shoot and 2003 Calendar Girls. Though I know Calendar Girls because my wife loves it, and there's no actual nudity (i.e. you don't see anything a bikini would cover) if I remember right.

But on more of a tangent... it really pisses me off when people talk about nudity of old people as something that's so disgusting or abhorrent. OK, fine, they haven't been classic pinup material for thirty years, but surely we can all grow up a little and appreciate the human body at any age. To suggest that anyone's body could blind you is just unacceptable. I'm sure your poor delicate sensibilities can handle it.

I wish Kevin Bacon would make the same pledge, and after seeing his topless scene in The Gambler add John Goodman to the list.

I think you're wrong on both counts there. AFAICT the article says no such thing and IIRC in Calendar Girls there were brief flashes as they were getting into position that showed Mirren, (and possibly others).

I could have sworn she once said that she took any chance possible in a film to get her clothes off. Oh well.

Sad news. The Queen would have been less of a movie without Dame Helen's "Queen" smothering Michael Sheen's "Tony Blair" with her outsized funbags towards the end. His "motorboat" noises are what got Dame Helen that Oscar.

Here I thought it was the scene where her corgis were licking whipped cream off of her nipples.

I think that you are being highly neurotic. I saw a pic of Dame Helen's tits, with her naked in a bathtub. Very scary episode. To be sure, in a bikini she looks pretty hot, for an old broad. In that tub, though, I have to concur...I think my vision jumped immediately from 20/50 to something like 20/400. IANAD.
One's physical attractiveness can take quite a violent hit at any age. At 60 plus, if she wants to go showing her tits, she'd do well to get a few nips (I slay me) and tucks.

Helen Mirren talks about her boobs in a publicity garnering interview for her new film shocker.

Just a demonstration of how it's still socially acceptable to casually denigrate, mock, and demean the bodies and sexuality of old people , women who fail to meet a specific standard of beauty (or grow out of it), and people who are considered unattractive for whatever reason.

Because those people should either not have bodies or sexuality or at least hide it even if it's relevant to a filmed story.

Hey, she may not be all that in the buff nowadays, but she's no Kathy Bates.

Based on the number of times Mirran has gotten her kit off in movies, I would have thought it was a requirement in her contract she insisted on. Pity - her pleasure pillows are quite nice.

She's about 2 months older than I am. No more nude scenes for me either.
