Dame Helen Mirren looks so well for her age that a body double 39 years her junior has been hired for her new movie Eye In The Sky.

The Queen actress wowed fans with her figure when she was famously pictured in a red bikini in 2008, and she frequently receives comments that she looks more youthful than her 69 years.

Her body is in such great shape that 30 year old Fleur Van Eeden has been hired to stand in for Mirren for some scenes in the war thriller, which is being filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.

Eeden tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "It's amazing to be playing her body double when I'm 40 years younger her. But Helen looks fantastic... No way does she look her age - she looks amazing. I want to look like that when I'm 69."

Mirren will play a colonel leading a drone operation in Eye in the Sky, which also stars Alan Rickman and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. It is due for release next year (15).
