Dame Helen Mirren may be 62, but it seems she has no plans to stop stripping off. The Oscar and Emmy-winner, who has taken her clothes off in The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover and more recently in Calendar Girls, says she enjoys baring all, reports the Daily Express. "I am a nudist at heart," she said. "I have been to many nudist beaches. It is amazing how quickly feelings of self-consciousness disappear. "Of course it only works if everyone else is naked too."
