HELEN MIRREN

The serene Queen explains how she stays sexy at 61.

WHAT'S YOUR SECRET?
"Number one, I have never smoked. When you are young, you seem indestructible. As you get older, you realize how much it's helping you. I've never done anything to excess, really."

DESCRIBE YOUR OUTLOOK ON LIFE
"I have my dark moments—I am, after all, half Russian. But I have a fundamentally sunny nature. Unhappiness etches itself on one's face very quickly."

WHAT'S ETCHED ON YOUR FACE?
"Certainly my age. I am as old as I am. There's no running away from that fact."
