Mirren: I'm not in great shape

Dame Helen Mirren revealed one of the "secrets" to her youthful looks as she hit the red carpet for the premiere of her latest film.

The Oscar-winning actress attended the UK screening of The Debt at the Curzon Mayfair cinema in central London.

She said of her looks: "One of my secrets is that I'm actually not in great shape.

"I just cover it up well, mind over matter to a certain extent.

"I'm not nearly as in good shape as I should be, let's put it that way."

The veteran star was decked out in a burgundy Donna Karan dress, Chopard jewellery and Rene Caovilla shoes

Dame Helen, 66, who plays a former Mossad secret agent in the film, backed calls for the creation of a Palestinian state, saying that it was a "necessity".

In response to the Palestinian bid for statehood at the United Nations, Dame Helen said she was in favour of a two-state solution to the conflict.

She said: "I think it's a necessity that Palestine has a state.

"It's an absolute necessity certainly for the future of that part of the world."
