Helen Mirren: “I’m not beautiful”

Helen Mirren is happy with who she is.

The actress may not think she is beautiful, but she is very comfortable with her sexuality.

“I’m not beautiful. I was never beautiful. I just clean up nice! Sexiness is different. I don’t mind being sexy — but on my own terms. I’ve always felt very comfortable about my sexuality,” the 65-year-old said.

“Women don’t lose their sex appeal as they get older, it just moves into a different kind of arena. I don’t mean full-on sex appeal – that’s really for the young. No, it’s some kind of indeterminate thing — an appreciation of life and wisdom and other things, perhaps. There should be a special word for it.”
