About a year ago, we at Nerve published a list of the twenty-one sexiest elderly people. Our readers seemed to agree with our choices, except for one complaint: where the fuck was Helen Mirren?! Sadly, Mirren had missed our cut-off age — sixty-five — by one year. Believe me, it was a painful thing for us to accept. Mirren may very well have been the inspiration for the list, and we couldn’t include her. (Obviously, we hold ourselves to a very firm ethical code when making lists about sexy, sexy people.) But given this photo shoot Mirren just did for New York Magazine to help promote her upcoming film Love Ranch, maybe we could just do it again right now and bump someone off the list? Because yowza:
She may not be your cup of tea, but you have to give her credit for just doing it, you know? (Even though she does say, in her interview, "I’ll never make it as a bad girl … I’m not a prude or a moralist and I never have been, but I’m too fearful, too much of a wimp, really." If this her her being "too fearful", would she be knocking over 7-Elevens if she wasn’t?) And here’s one more, definitely NSFW shot for you:
Love her. And you should definitely head over the NY Mag for more pictures and a very charming interview with Mirren.
