Highlight Story

Dame Helen Mirren has dismissed reports claiming that she is writing a book about sex.

The Oscar winning actress said the rumours followed after an "offhand comment" was put out of context.

"Please! No! Sometimes you make an offhand comment to someone somewhere and it gets handed down," the Daily Star quoted her as telling the New York Post.

"But I would someday like to do a book. A whole different kind. A novel. I love the process. It came so easily to me when I sat down to write something, and took me by surprise because I didn't know I'd enjoy it so much. But writing about love and sex? Not until I'm dead," she added.
