The 64-year-old actress whose latest film 'Love Ranch' is directed by her husband Taylor Hackford said she trusts he would make her looks good on the scene.
Dame Helen Mirren was completely at ease having her husband Taylor Hackford direct her in a steamy scene for their new movie "Love Ranch", because the couple has become "comfortable" in its decades-long relationship.
Mirren and Hackford teamed up for the racy film about a Nevada brothel, in which "The Queen" star plays a madam. One scene called for the actress to get intimate with hunky Spanish actor Sergio Peris-Mencheta, who is almost 30 years her junior. But the 64-year-old star insists she had no qualms about being groped by another man in front of Hackford - because she knew he would make her look her best during the on-camera romp.
She says, "Honestly it was kind of great because obviously I trust my husband. He knows me; he knows what I look like in the morning and the last thing at night. He knows me. He knows my body, he knows my face with make-up, without make-up, so I can trust him and I'm comfortable with him."
Mirren and Hackford began their romance in 1986 and married 11 years later.
