Looking good, Helen Mirren! The stunning actress recently posted a no makeup selfie via Instagram — and fans can't believe she's 72 years old. "Oscar night before," she captioned the headshot of her before the 2018 Oscars looking bare-faced.
"Wow. Still stunning," one fan wrote. Another added, "Strong, beautiful, woman. Without makeup, you are even more striking!" One commented, "Well done for showing that you are still stunning without makeup."
Helen has really embraced aging over the past few years. During a recent interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she joked that she forgot her how old she was! "I think I’m 73! My husband and I, we forget," Helen exclaimed to host Ellen DeGeneres. "Are you sure? I’m 72? This is fantastic! I’ve just made a whole year. Because my husband and I thought we were 74 and then we worked it out and no, we’re 73. So we both went, 'Oh, fantastic, we’ve got a whole extra year!' And now I’ve got another year."
And even though she's into her 70s, Helen has no plans to slow down. "I see myself stopping and not working almost every morning. I never want to go to a party, I want to stay at home and watch TV. I never want to go out to dinner, I want to stay at home and watch TV. I never want to go on Ellen, I want to stay at home and watch TV."
The Queen star is happy with her age regardless. "I don’t often wish that I’m younger because I think that it’s pretty cool to be older. What I love the most about being older is that lovely I don’t give a f–kness kind of thing," Helen shared. "All you young things don’t be afraid of getting older because it’s f–king great."
