The 70-year-old actress has just one inking on her body, a small Native American-inspired design of interlocking 'Vs' on her left hand which she had done during when she was a lot younger and drunk.

Now, Mirren has admitted she is open to getting another design and thinks a David Beckham-esque sleeve would be fun.

Speaking to Radio Times magazine, she said: "I want to get another one, actually. I'd like a whole sleeve. As you get older, I think it's a better and better idea."

When pushed to describe what sort of design she'd like to get, she added: "Some sort of curving pattern running up my arm. Maybe a snake. I quite like snakes."

Mirren - who is married to director Taylor Hackford - also revealed she is "tired" of being called "sexy".

The blonde Brit has always been admired by men all over the world due to her occasional racy roles and willingness to strip off on screen but she insists she's bored of being an inspirer of lust.

Mirren - who walked the red carpet at the UK premiere of her new movie 'Eye In The Sky' in London on Monday night (11.04.16) - told the publication: "I've always been tired of being called 'sexy'. It's annoying and irritating - I just have to put up with it."
