Helen Mirren thinks of French movie star Gerard Depardieu everytime she has to disrobe for a sex scene - because he's never afraid to get naked on screen.

The PRIME SUSPECT star has never been shy about baring all in films like Calendar Girls and THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE + HER LOVER, and she boasts she's the "female Gerard Depardieu."

She explains, "I don't care anymore. I'm a great admirer of Gerard Depardieu - he's very chunky, but he doesn't have that attitude of, 'Oh, my God, I've got a nude scene. I've got to work out.'"
