Helen Mirren won't be showing off her pleasure pillows anymore

Los Angeles - Dame Helen Mirren won't do anymore nude scenes.

The 70-year-old actress - who famously stripped for Calendar Girls in 2003 - has said the only person who will get her to remove her clothes now is her director husband Taylor Hackford.

She said: "My pleasure pillows are purely for my husband.

"That's the good thing about getting older, you don't have to do that sort of thing anymore."

The Oscar-winning actress wasn't keen on going nude to begin with, but when she first started acting, stripping wasn't considered a big deal.

In an interview with CBS, she questioned: "Does it really matter? It seemed to be not a thing to get your knickers in a twist over.

"I was doing nude scenes in the first moment I started doing movies. It was the era."

The Woman in Gold star - who also bared-all in 1979's Caligula - said sex scenes are everywhere now, even before the watershed on the small screen.

She added: "When I was doing Caligula, it was 'shock, horror!'

"But now, with Game of Thrones, it's on at 20:00 and everything's a sex scene."
