London, June 6 (IANS) Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren says the best part about getting older is “being relieved of the whole sex-symbol tag”.
Mirren, 70, says she has enjoyed every stage of her life in “different ways,” reports telegraph.co.uk.
“For me, one of the best things about getting older is finally being relieved of the whole sex symbol tag,” Mirren said.
“There is good and bad in ageing. Each age you become reveals a new person you have become. I loved being young, but I have enjoyed every stage in different ways,” she added.
The actress is also “incredibly grateful” for her health.
“I am happy being in my 70s and there will be another person in me at 80, hopefully, and I can’t wait to meet her. I am just incredibly grateful to be here and incredibly grateful for my health. When I do anything it is always to do with health, not beauty,” she added.
