Helen Mirren's surgery dream

Dame Helen Mirren claims she would have had cosmetic surgery ''years ago'' if she wasn't in the public eye

Dame Helen Mirren wants "full-on" cosmetic surgery.

The 64-year-old actress admits she often thinks about going under the knife and insists she would have had procedures done "years ago" if she wasn't in the public eye.

She said: "I'd think about it even more if I was in a different profession. If I wasn't on camera I would have had it done years ago.

"It's the full-on for me. Suck it all up, tie it up and then cut it all off!"

The 'Last Station' star is about to start work on a new movie called 'Red', in which she plays a retired CIA agent called back into action and Helen admits she is not looking forward to preparing for the role as she hates exercise.

She added to The Times newspaper: "I should be going to the gym now but I just don't want to do it.

"I don't do anything like that regularly at all. But because I'm filming I should."

Helen recently revealed she has a small tattoo which was a "drunken mistake" because she wanted to shock.

She said: "I was very, very drunk. It was a very, very long time ago, when only sailors and Hell's Angels were tattooed, honestly, and prisoners.

"I decided to get a tattoo because it was the most shocking thing I could think of doing.

"Now I'm utterly disgusted and shocked because it's become completely mainstream, which is unacceptable to me."
