Dame Helen Mirren won the Icon award at the annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards on Tuesday night (03.06.14).
The Oscar-winning actress, 68, was thrilled to be presented with the prize by Ryan Reynolds, with whom she is currently filming 'The Woman In Gold,' and used her moment on stage to urge young stars not to be afraid of getting older.
She said: ''There are a lot of really young women here who are very beautiful, incredibly talented, and I salute you and respect you all. I'm so proud to be a member of your sex.
''Your 40s are good. Your 50s are great. Your 60s are fab. And 70 is f**king awesome. I'm not quite there yet, but almost.''
Davina McCall was named Glamour Hero for her gruelling 500-mile cycle, swim and running journey from Edinburgh to London in February, which raised £1 million for Sports Relief, and 'Orange Is The New Black' actress Taylor Schilling, 29, won the Editor's Special Award.
Other big winners included 'Grace of Monaco' actress Nicole Kidman, who won the Outstanding Contribution award, and Taylor Swift, who was awarded Best International Solo Artist, but neither of them were able to attend the glittering ceremony.
'The Hunger Games' star Sam Claflin - who plays Finnick Odair in the franchise - was named the Man of the Year at the ceremony, which was presented by Graham Norton in London's Berkeley Square Gardens.
