Oscar winning actress, Dame Judi Dench, has urged her fellow octogenarians not to give up on healthy sex life.
The 82-year-old actress was explaining the role of Queen Victoria in her latest film ‘Victoria and Abdul’, which explores the relationship between the monarch and an Indian clerk, Abdul Karim.
According to her, Victoria’s infatuation with the clerk was an interesting exploration of how romance and intimacy were not just the domain of the young.
Speaking of her own experiences with the Radio Times, the actress who’s now dating British Conventionist, David Mills, 73, eight years her junior, said: ‘Well, of course, you still feel desire. Does that ever go? To the older reader, I would say, ‘Don’t give up!’
Dench who lost her husband of 30 years, Michael Williams to cancer in 2001, met her boyfriend David in 2010 when he asked her to open a red squirrel enclosure at the British Wildlife Centre.
The inseparable pair who have been dating for sevens years have also ruled out the idea of getting married due to their age.
