Helen Mirren's Wise Words

Happy birthday, Helen Mirren! The actress and 2011's Body of the Year turns 67 today, and to celebrate, we're taking a look back at some of Helen's quotes on aging, healthy living, and looking good.

On moderation: "I've never done anything to excess," she told People. "I've never drunk or eaten too much. It helps to stay balanced."

On that famous bikini shot: "I happened to be holding my stomach in because my husband was taking my photograph," she said. "Three weeks every six months, I decide to work out. I'm unbelievably lazy. If I had any form of self-discipline, I would look a lot better than I do."

On why younger isn't always better: "The hardest period in life is one's twenties," she told Esquire. "It's a shame because you're your most gorgeous and you're physically in peak condition. But it's actually when you're most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don't know what's going to happen, it's frightening."

On fashion's obsession with thin: "I think it is completely iniquitous to have incredibly skinny girls on the runway. A lot of the girls are horrifically thin and of course they have a problem. Mostly the fashion industry chooses to turn a blind eye . . . The whole thing is based on fantasy," she's said.
