Helen Mirren Enjoys Nudist Beaches

Monday, June 27, 2011

DAME Helen Mirren has been to nudist beaches and found the experience “comforting”.

The 65-year-old actress has revealed she has visited beaches where visitors strip off naked and thinks being nude in public is very liberating.

“I have been on a nudist beach about three times in my life and found it very comforting,” she said.

“It is a natural experience and instantly changes the way you think about nudity and sexuality.”

Despite having bared her body for several film roles, Mirren insists she is insecure about her figure just like most women.

“In truth, I have a much greater interest in a great nightie than nudity. I am not self-confident about the way I look. I think, at times, I look like the back of a bus. I do not have a great body. I have a crap body. Naomi Campbell has a great body. Let’s be realistic here,” she said.

I’m not a clubby person, have never been anyone’s fan, never even went to a nightclub and have never asked for an autograph. Yet my image, for what it was worth, seemed totally different to that. I suppose the number of nude scenes I’ve done over the years may have contributed to that.”

    yes, To me, being nude is being the same person but in a sensually charged ambience that is very pleasurable. Indeed I prefer being with my family and other sociable mixed gender naturists in clubs and resorts for all of our recreation or relaxation. My personal best was three weeks vacation at Euronat resort in France, with everything except sandals put away for the entire duration.

    At your first naturist experience, you may feel apprehensive and worried that people will be staring at you. But a visit to truenudist.net is much different than you would experience anywhere else. At there, you will not find people trying to undress you with their eyes, from afar or near, because there is nothing left for the imagination to remove. You will not find people throwing outdated, lewd or offensive pickup lines at you.


    “I have never been anyone’s fan”…
    How can you know?
    BTW Naomi Campbell is dreaming about beauty like your, be sure… :)
