Mirren, actress who played Queen, mulls book on sex
Helen Mirren, 64, the British actress who won an Oscar for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II, says she may write a book about sex for older people, a German weekly reported Thursday, DPA reported.
Mirren told the magazine supplement to the weekly newspaper Die Zeit she resented young people treating sex by older people as taboo.
"Young people are the most puritan of all. They want to have it all for themselves and can't bear it when older people have sex," said Mirren, according to the German version of the interview.
Mirren, who has already published her memoirs, added, "Some day I've got to write another book. Maybe I'll call it My Sex Life. I think I'll write it and just save it on my computer and not let it be published till after I'm dead."
The actress, who played nude scenes in middle age on the London stage, had the title role in the movie The Queen in 2006. She currently stars in the recently released The Last Station, where she plays the wife of Russian writer Leo Tolstoy.
