London (ANI): English actress Dame Helen Mirren, 63, denies that she looks as sexy in real life as she did in a bikini shot that was taken in France this summer. She revealed that a photographer had caught her at a flattering angle.
"I looked at that photo, I swear to you, I looked at that photo and thought, maybe if I exercise I could look like that," the Daily Express quoted her as telling columnists Richard and Judy on TV as they discussed the photo. "I started exercising the next day. I was doing sit-ups and thought 'Oooh, maybe I'll actually look like that if I do exercise'. But I don't," she added.
Mirren also insisted that she did not take to any fancy diets or personal trainers to make her look the way she did.
