She may be nearing her 60s but the British actress maintains her health and fitness by sticking to a clean diet. This doesn’t mean that she practices a strict diet though. It only means that she opts healthy foods rather than consume processed ones. Also with her age, it is important for her to be conscious of the foods she eats in order to stay in shape and healthy as well.
In general, though, the award-winning actress doesn’t feel pressure when it comes to her weight. While she knows that the acting industry somehow judges actresses who are heavier, this doesn’t affect her. In an interview, she said: “People were obsessed with weight as much then as they are today.” She went on to say: “I also did not go on a diet. The weight fell off me when I married. I would never think of criticising anyone over their weight.”
