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.”
