Veteran actress Judi Dench was left unimpressed when she was made a Dame - confessing she "hates" the regal title.
Bond star Dench was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire - the female equivalent of a Knighthood - in 1988.
But she is less-than-grateful with the title bestowed on her - insisting it makes her feel like a "teapot" that should be put in storage.
She tells Britain's The Times Magazine, "I just don't like the title! I really don't like it at all. It's a discarded, put-away thing. Like one of those things you're given and you think, 'What the hell am I going to do with this?'
"You make yourself sound like a teapot, put away in a cupboard, behind a piece of glass. No, I hate that."
