DAME Helen Mirren hates watching romantic films, branding herself "a man in disguise".
The Oscar-winner, most famous for portraying British monarch Queen Elizabeth II, reveals she doesn't enjoy typically girlie movies because she doesn't like to discuss her feelings.
And Mirren insists her upcoming film Love Ranch - in which she plays a brothel boss - is "about as romantic as I can handle".
She says, "I don't really like romantic movies very much and I hate talking about feelings, so I'm definitely a man in disguise.
"I don't even really like seeing people kiss in movies. This movie is about as romantic as I can handle."
