It’s good to be the Queen. Yet according to royal performer Helen Mirren, maintaining looks for good parts can be a royal pain as well. In her interview with British lifestyle magazine Woman’s Own, her “highness” spoke candidly about her plans for plastic surgery and anti-aging strategies.

In spite of the praise of Mirren’s beauty, the 69-year-old movie and stage icon claims she is not terribly satisfied with her looks as she has gotten older. In fact, the master thespian stated she is considering plastic and cosmetic surgery “very, very soon” but does not want to look “ridiculous.”

Father Time and Mother Mirren

Mirren opened up about her Woman's Own interview exclusive.

"I think about all those women you see with duck or fish lips and you don't ever want to look like that,” Mirren commented in Woman’s Own. “But I wouldn't rule it out. People have the freedom to do what makes them happy. It's sad when people destroy their faces with too much work but there are also many people who have had success with cosmetic surgery. If you can look in the mirror and feel good about yourself, even when you have these ridiculous lips, why not?”

Up until now, the The Long Good Friday and Prime Suspect star has always resisted media coercion to enhance her already celebrated looks. It also seems that Mirren does not even rely on a steady workout routine.

"I don't do much of anything," she claimed. "I've done about three Pilates classes and it was great. I should do more."

Be that as it may, now that the Oscar-winning celebrated actress is a year away from becoming a septuagenarian, she admits to considering plastic and cosmetic surgery, and a slew of other anti-aging techniques.

"Very soon, I think,” Mirren told Woman’s Own. “Very, very soon. Watch out!"

Feeling Great About Her Age!

As for turning the big 7-0, Mirren has her own strategy for that as well. "I've been telling everybody I'm 70 for the last two years," she revealed. "I knew I was getting near 70, so I just decided to say, 'You know, I'm 70.’ It's perfect for me, because I'm surprised that I'm not 70 already. Like, 'Wow, I'm only 69. That's fantastic!'"
