AceShowbiz - Judi Dench finally got a tattoo, a "carpe diem" on her wrist. The Dame who turned 81 in December has been hoping to get inked as she got older but she didn't get it done until her birthday last year. The body art was actually a birthday present from her daughter Finty.
"That's my motto: Seize the day. Finty gave it to me for my 81st birthday - she's wonderful with surprises," she explained to The Mirror. "Mind you the company of A Winter's Tale, which I was doing at the time, used to say that it said fish of the day."
She initially planned to have "an Indian symbol that I like which supposedly represents life and love and everything." She said, "One of the cameramen who worked on The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel told me what it meant, but I'm a bit nervous in case I'm being set up ... It might be unbelievably rude!"
