Helen Mirren says she’s “tired of being called sexy”

“It’s annoying and irritating.”

Dame Helen Mirren wants you to know she’s really bored with people calling her sexy.

In an interview with the Radio Times, the Oscar-winning actress revealed she’s never been comfortable with her status as a pensionable pin-up, saying: “I’ve always been tired of being called ‘sexy’. It’s annoying and irritating – I just have to put up with it.”

And when asked about the 2016 dating scene including apps like Tinder, the Eye in the Sky star said she reckons it would be “more fun than going to bars”, adding: “It’s very difficult to go to a bar to find a date.”

Mirren is currently starring in the technological war thriller as Colonel Katherine Powell, a military intelligence officer leading a top-secret drone operation on a mission that quickly spirals out of control
