At the premiere of her new movie “Philomena,” Judi Dench, 78, walked the red carpet like a champ even though the Oscar winner had recently undergone knee replacement surgery.
Without the use of a cane for support, the British actress told The Daily Mirror that she was determined to walk on her own by the time the premiere rolled around.
"I have a completely new knee now," the movie star said. "It's brilliant."
"When I had it done on September 6, I said to my surgeon, 'On October 16 I will walk up a red carpet unaided', and so I did," she said. "You set your mind to a goal and go for it."
The actress also told the Mirror that she doesn’t feel like a 78-year-old, but instead like “a tall willowy blonde 43-year-old with long legs.” She also has no desire to “slow down at all.”
