Dame Helen Mirren is still hot in a red bikini at 65. This a real woman, not a doll or some weird photoshopped creature. Helen Mirren is self-confident, curvy, and playful.

Perennial beauty Dame Helen Mirren has no problems wearing a bright red bikini, showing her lovely big boobs to the world. In movie after movie, whether she's 20, 40, or 60, she throws off her clothes without worrying that age and gravity are battling her body.

Helen Mirren has always been outspoken, even admitting to drug use in the 1980s. She told GQ magazine, I loved coke. I never did a lot, just a little bit at parties. But what ended it for me was when they caught Klaus Barbie, the Butcher of Lyon, in the early 80s.

Barbie, she says, was hiding in South America and living off the proceeds of being a cocaine baron. And I read that in the paper, and all the cards fell into place and I saw how my little sniff of cocaine at a party had an absolute direct route to this horrible f-cking man.

Helen Mirren is not a classic beauty like Catherine Deneuve. Without much effort, Mirren can look plain and ordinary in movies, such as when playing Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison in the 'Prime Suspect' series.

Mirren's sexiness is about self-confidence. And there's a playfulness about her that works because it stands on solid ground. She says teasingly, hinting as lesbian flirtations, I guess I'm heterosexual, but I loved my girlfriend I had at college because there was a sense of camaraderie and physical closeness that doesn't have to be sexual.

She's known to love men. She prefers to be interviewed by male journalists because she finds women bitchy and catty: I prefer male journalists because there's a streak of female journalism -- the bitches -- who are mean-spirited and nasty because you are another woman and want to make you feel crap. It's very upsetting.

I'm more careful when I'm being interviewed by a woman because, from experience as well as reading articles about other women, I know there is a little stiletto knife hidden behind the back, she says.

Mirren understands that men love to be praised and flattered. Who would not like to be told, I learnt from wonderful men, wonderful relationships. They gave me support, made me feel good and made me laugh. Now I think men are absolutely great.

Dame Helen Mirren, we're think you're great, incredibly sexy in your 60s. Keep up the good work. You make millions of men very happy.
