The 70-year-old veteran actress Mirren is well known for her sense of humor and thanks to Saturday Night Live, where she has given her decision to keep her “legendary breasts” covered from now onward. She also joked and said that her “pleasure pillows” are now only for her husband Taylor Hackford.
“That’s the good thing about getting older. You don’t have to do that sort of thing anymore. My pleasure pillows are purely for my husband,” Mirren said during an interview with Alan Cumming, as reported by People.
She also straightly answered that she did not know that her boobs were legendary as there must have been much more legendary boobs than her ones. According to her statement, “profound sexism” is still alive in Hollywood that obstructs aged women from scoring more film roles.
“When I did ‘Caligula’ it was ‘shock horror,’ ‘triple X,’ ‘only in porn cinemas’ – now ‘Game of Thrones’ is on at 8 o’clock at night, and it is exactly what I did in Caligula. Basically every scene is sex, upfront,” Mirren added, confirmed by Yahoo Movies.
In the 1969’s movie “Age of Consent,” Mirren appeared nude playing the role of a beach babe in a remote island. The 1979’s movie “Caligula” was Mirren most sexually explicit film that had X-rated scenes. She appeared completely nude in that movie. MailOnline confirmed that an uncut version of the cult film was later released in 2008.
