Sixty-five year old actress Helen Mirren couldn’t be looking better! The word is “wow”! Those famous curves must be making a lot of women her jealous, women of all ages jealous for that matter.
With an Oscar on her mantel and the right to use “Dame” before her name, Helen Mirren definitely doesn’t need to strip down for the camera to publicize her latest movie. But when you look as good as she does at 65, why wouldn’t you? The British actress has caused quite a stir by posing naked, soapy breasts quite visible through bathwater, in one of the recent issues of New York magazine. The photos, shot by artsy fashion photographer Juergen Teller, have an understated quality that helps Mirren come off as in control and anything but desperate for attention. They’re interestingly beautiful and beg the question, how the hell does she look better than many 45 year olds?
What’s her big secret to staying in bikini worthy shape? Well to start off, unlike many younger Hollywood celebrity women, Helen never bothered to stick to any unhealthy weight loss diet plans or excessive and gruelling fitness exercise programs for that matter.
Her attitude towards her diet plan and her fitness exercise program is simple: maintain a healthy attitude towards fitness exercise and weight loss without getting obsessed:
“I go through phases of fitness exercise programs, if I start getting puffy when I go upstairs, I’ll force myself back into minimalist fitness exercise. I’m a great believer in the Canadian Air Force fitness exercise program because they only take 15 minutes…I’ve gone through many diets that are also very boring. You stop eating, and that’s what makes you lose weight: not eating. But as you get older, unhealthy weight loss doesn’t make your body look better, don’t you think?’
This attitude towards keeping a healthy weight loss program and fitness exercise program is probably the main reason why Nintendo approached her to become their new fitness exercise and weight loss ambassador.
Wait? Nintendo? Oh yes, you got that right! Helen’s big secret to a healthy weight loss nowadays is nothing more than Nitendo’s Wii Fit Plus. Dame Helen, who has stated in the past that she does not like much of her body, especially from the waist down, is certainly relying on the Wii Fit Plus game for her fitness exercise program and weight loss that will surely whip her body into shape.
“The Wii is fun, and it’s infinitely varied so it’s a great fitness exercise program and it’s a healthy weight loss plan too. You can hula, jog, do yoga exercise, step, all in one session. You need never get bored as every day you can tailor a new fitness exercise program,” she says.
Plus, the Wii Fit Plus program allows her to get her fitness exercise program and weight loss plan at home in her old yoga exercise pants and a t-shirt where she doesn’t have to worry about anyone looking at her while she does her fitness exercises.
“It’s my new best friend,” she confides.
She gets to execute a healthy weight loss plan and fun fitness exercise program but as cherry on top, Dame Helen Mirren was paid £500,000 to advertise a keep-fit video game.
The 65-year-old actress received the staggering sum for just two days work shooting the commercials for the Wii Fit Plus title which encourages owners of Nintendo’s motion controlled console to do their fitness exercise program and healthy weight loss program from the comfort of their own home.
The company insisted on Helen for their new Wii for fitness and weight loss campaign because they believe her glamorous look and svelte figure will attract over-50s to the game.
A friend of the Oscar winner said: “Nintendo insisted they wanted Helen and no one else. They wanted an older, more attractive woman to show that the Wii isn’t just for children.”
The game allows users to undertake a variety of fitness exercise programs and weight loss including yoga exercise and aerobics exercise and sets individuals weight loss goals as well telling you your BMI.
In the TV advert Helen is seen using the game and praising the amount of fitness exercise programs available, saying: “You need never get bored with your fitness exercise program and weight loss plan as every day you can tailor a new fitness exercise program.”
Weight Loss Tips #1:
Diet, but not too strictly. She once told USA Weekend that she does weight loss diets just like everybody else but she also gives herself a break from her diet plan.
Weight Loss Tips #2:
Exercise, but not obsessively. Mirren does go the gym but she doesn’t do it out of vanity. She does her fitness exercise program to stay healthy. Before Nintento Wii, she also said that she gets lots of fitness exercise by walking her dogs.
Weight Loss Tips #3:
Don’t overindulge either. “I’ve never done anything to excess,” she told People. “I’ve never drunk or eaten too much. It helps to stay balanced.”
Weight Loss Tips #4:
Beauty sleep is serious biz. Even when she works late during filming, she makes sure she gets her sleep.
Weight Loss Tips #5:
Be yourself. “Her sensuality comes from her honesty,” Mirren’s husband Taylor Hackford told USA Weekend. “She’s not hiding behind makeup or a baby-doll hairdo. She’s the real thing.”
