Mirren was interviewed by The Good Wife actor Alan Cumming for CBS in a special segment, Remember That Time?, posted online on Thursday (1st October). 

"That's the good thing about getting older," Mirren told Cumming of nude scenes (via Marie Claire). "You don't have to do that sort of thing anymore. My pleasure pillows are purely for my husband now."

Mirren is comfortable with her body and has not been afraid to show it throughout her career. She has shown her breasts in such films as Caligula (1979) and Calendar Girls (2003). Her breasts were also the focus of a Saturday Night Live feature, ‘Helen Mirren’s Magical Bosom’, in which a number of women had other worldly experiences after touching Mirren’s breasts.

She referred to her generally relaxed attitude to nudity in the interview, stating: "It was not the sort of thing to get your knickers in a twist about."

Mirren may be retiring her breasts but she’s certainly not heading for retirement altogether. This year alone she’s starred in three different films: The Woman in Gold, Eye in the Sky and Trumbo. Mirren stars in Trumbo, the biopic of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, as gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. Trumbo is due to be released next month in November and in January in the UK.
