Dame Helen Mirren has laughed off suggestions she is too old to pose nude.

Speaking about her recent flesh-flashing photo shoot for New York Magazine, the 64-year-old actress insists she doesn't care what people think of her risque decisions.

When it was put to her that some people were upset by a woman of a certain age baring all during an interview with Collider.com, Helen laughed and said "too bad".

The Oscar-winning actress - who plays Grace Botempo, a whorehouse madam, in her new film 'Love Ranch', which is directed by her husband Taylor Hackford - loved the final photos because they were so natural.

She explained: "I like the photos because I thought they were naked in the proper sense of the word naked. I've got very little make-up on. There's no elaborate lighting. He just used a flash. And it's simple and it's real. I think that was the intention of the photographs."

Helen is adamant the nude shots were never supposed to be interpreted as sexy.

She said: "They weren't intended remotely to be sexy, I think sex and nudity are really two different things, you see, but then I'm a bit weird like that. Sometimes nudity is sexy. Sometimes it's not. Sometimes being clothed is more sexy than being nude. I think people tend to get the two mixed up."
