    As Helen Mirren reveals she will no longer be stripping off on screen, MailOnline looks back at some of her sexiest moments


    She has appeared nude in no less than nine of her films.

    But after almost five decades of stripping off on screen, Dame Helen Mirren has revealed she plans to keep covered up in future and will no longer be baring her body for the sake of her art.

    The 70-year-old Oscar-winning actress revealed in an interview with Alan Cumming on CBS America: 'That's the good thing about getting older, you don't have to do that sort of thing anymore.'

    What a woman: Helen Mirren, pictured at the Golden Globe Awards in January 2015, has announced she is officially retiring from taking her clothes off on screen

    Beginning her career by treading the boards with the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1967, Helen is one of the few stars to have achieved the Triple Crown of Acting, with a Best Actress Academy Award (The Queen, 2007), a Tony Award and several Emmys under her belt for Prime Suspect.
    While Helen is known for her incredible talent, appearing in over 80 films and countless plays over the course of her illustrious career, she is also an international sex symbol and has never shied away from disrobing for a role.

    She explained: ‘I was doing nude scenes from the moment I first start doing movies. I never wanted to show much boobs, but I thought, “Does it really matter?” It seemed to be nothing to get your knickers in a twist over.'

    ‘When I did Caligula it was “shock horror”, “triple X”, “only in porn cinemas” – now Game Of Thrones is on at 8 o’clock at night, and it is exactly what I did in Caligula – basically every scene is sex – upfront.’ :eek::eek:

    Making a name for herself: Helen first disrobed for a role aged just 22, as a young painter's muse in 1969 romantic drama Age Of Consent

    Young sex symbol: The young actress, who started out with the Royal Shakespeare Company, earned a legion of fans thanks to her first major film

    As Helen admits her days of appearing nude are over, MailOnline looks back at some of the screen icon’s sexiest moments – both on and off-screen.:eek::eek:


    1 – Age Of Consent

    Helen’s first major screen role launched the 22-year-old to sex symbol status. The 1969 drama leaves little to the imagination as her young character poses nude for a passionate painter. While the full version was aired in UK cinemas, overseas distributors were allegedly shocked by the amount of nudity in the film and cut six minutes from the final edit.

    2 – Savage Messiah

    The 1972 biopic about the fiery French sculptor Henri Gaudier-Brzeska features a memorable scene in which a topless Helen descends a staircase. The actress has since confessed she considered throwing herself out of her trailer and breaking her leg so she didn’t have to go through with it.

    Iconic scene: One of Helen's first seductive screen moments was in 1972's Savage Messiah, in which she descends a staircase topless

    :eek::eek:
    X-rated: Caligula (1979) is Mirren's most explicit film to date and was branded ‘trash’ and ‘degraded’ by critics at the time

    3 – Oh Lucky Man!

    The screen siren plays Malcolm McDowell’s love interest in the 1973 comedy-drama, which features plenty of seductive scenes. Discussing nudity in a 2010 interview, she joked, ‘It's never comfortable. The best thing would be if all the crew took their clothes off too and then you'd feel fine but it's never comfortable to be the only one without clothes on.’

    4 – Caligula

    The 1979 film about the rise and fall of Roman Emperor Caligula was panned by critics at the time, who branded it ‘trash’ and ‘degraded’. Produced by pornographic magazine Penthouse, the historical drama is Helen’s most sexually explicit film to date and contains X-rated sex scenes in which she appears fully nude. An uncut version of the cult movie was released in 2008.

    'Enraging': The actress has often spoken about how reductive people's attitude towards women was in the early years of her career


    The following year, Mirren appeared in fantasy film Excalibur, a retelling of the legend of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table. Helen goes topless in a memorable scene as villainous temptress Morgana, earning her a legion of fans.

    She's still hot and if she did a nude scene at 70, I say go for it. Still gotta be better than Kathy Bates on the big screen.

    When I first saw Caligula years ago, I had no idea she was in it. I always think Brits would be too prudish to play those types of roles. She certainly wasn't/ isn't. Good for her. That's a young 70.

    True - I like to keep on top of the people trying to kill us, but back to your comment, what does that have to do with anything? You are a shitty poster.
