Helen Mirren enjoys pole dancing

DAME Helen Mirren likes watching pole dancing.

The 66-year-old actress - who is married to director Taylor Hackford - is "fascinated" by "sexy" imagery and is a big fan of Madonna and Lady Gaga.

She told The Times newspaper: "I like sexy stuff. I like looking at sexy photos. I loved Madonna's 'Sex' book and I love Gaga.

"To be honest, I rather like watching pole dancing. Not that I'm gay or anything, I just like the ballet of it."

Three years ago, Helen was pictured showing off her trim physique in a red bikini while holidaying in Italy, and after admitting she feels "haunted" by the picture, the actress is now desperately hoping it won't overshadow her career achievements when she passes away.

She said: "I just hope they don't print that bikini photo on my obituary page. Imagine it. Helen Mirren passes - phwooar!"

The 'Debt' star also jokingly admitted she may consider having cosmetic surgery in the future.

She said: "I'm sure the time will come fairly soon when I feel the need for it."
