Cape Town - Helen Mirren can add fearless to her resume.

The British film icon didn’t bat an eyelid about sharing her recent Oscars transformation with her legion of fans on Instagram!

Baring her make-up free face and tousled hair in a photo, the 72-year-old posted a snapshot of herself before the process of hair and make-up started.

Later she shared a photo afterwards where she looked like her typical glamorous self.

While she is often hailed for her age-defying looks as well as her incredible talent, the Oscar-winner revealed in a recent interview that she’s nothing like the confident star she appears to be, Daily Mail reports.

“I have experienced insecurity all my life, and I still do on a daily basis,” she told The Daily Telegraph. “I remember having these panic attacks but not at the obvious moments.”

She admits there have been many things she didn’t like about her body when she was propelled into the limelight as an actress in the late 1960s.

“Because I have never felt beautiful. There are people who are beautiful and I'm objective enough to know that I don't fit into that category. For me, still now, it's to do with wit and intelligence rather than the way I look. I don't feel clever or funny enough.”

We know most of the world will disagree especially rapper 50 Cent.

“Yeah I think I love her man, I’m trying not to stare at her. She knows she turns me on. She just has that thing, you know I can’t describe it,” he wrote on Instagram last year.
