Judi Dench Gets A Tattoo For Her 81st Birthday!

Dame Judi Dench got a tattoo for her 81st birthday last year as a gift from her daughter Finty.  The actress got the words ‘carpe diem’ inked onto her right wrist and says it just one of the ways she attempts to stay young.

Dame Judi has admitted though that try as she may, the effects of age are totally catching up with her.
She said: ‘I just want to go on being mobile and able to do things. I’m not going to be beaten by my eyes. I have macular degeneration but you just have to settle for it. On my scripts, my font is point-size 22, so you can imagine… It’s ridiculous, it’s a farce but I’m not going to give in.’

The talented actress who played M in the James Bond films is a role model for older women with her sense of style, love of life and commitment to her craft. About retiring from film she says:  ‘It’s an awful word retirement. I see it as a step back in a way, a step down. And if you give up on one thing then it seems to me that you might as well give up another and so on, when it’s so much better to keep the mind active.’
