Dame Helen Mirren reveals her 'bikini body' secret

So what’s the secret to Dame Helen Mirren’s bikini body at the grand old age of 65? Sleep, according to the Dame herself. The Arthur star told me this week: “Well the thing is no one sees me first thing in the morning. Or after a late night. Do you know I think the secret is sleep. I sleep a lot, all the time, anywhere and anytime! I just love sleeping.” Interesting concept.
The star also says she turned into quite the agony aunt on set filming Arthur with regard to Russell Brand’s marriage to Katy Perry. “He did ask me about a few things,” Helen said. “I don’t like giving advice because everyone’s different – what works for you doesn’t work for someone else – but we did talk about it a lot.
“I mean, I say don’t be precious about it – the way the world is we are in the public eye and I just don’t worry about it. I carry on my life exactly the way I always have, I go to the supermarket, I get the bus and I go out for dinner. I just think live your life the way you want to.”
