According to the incredibly informative Mr. Skin, Helen Mirren has appeared nude onscreen a total of 17 times. From 1969, to her last breast flash in 2010, Helen Mirren's "Mirrens" have been co-starring with her for over 40 years.
In case you are unfamiliar with just how magical Hellen Mirren's titties are, be sure to watch this SNL sketch featuring Nassim Pedrad, Andy Samberg as God, Kristen Wiig, and David Grohl. This might give you an idea:
70-year-old Mirren has now decided it's time to throw in the towel (and perhaps throw on a towel) and keep her girls covered. In a CBS interview with Alan Cumming, Helen explains:
“I was doing nude scenes [from] the first moment I started doing movies… . It was the era… . It seemed to be nothing to get your knickers in a twist over. That’s the good thing about getting older. You don’t have to do that sort of thing any more… [Now] my pleasure pillows are purely for my husband.”
He's one lucky man.
Let's take a stroll through the ages as we uncover, and watch Mirren uncover, in her top five sexiest roles.
1. Age of Consent - 1969
2. Caligula - 1979
3. Cal - 1984
4. The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover - 1989
5. Love Ranch - 2010
Thank you, Helen, for showing us the breast -- I mean, best -- of you in every film you have ever been in, nude or not.
I look forward to your future acting roles, in which you might be more covered up physically, but definitely not emotionally.
