Dame Helen Mirren is "mesmerised" by Twerking.

The 68-year-old actress admits she loves the butt-shaking dance move and she tends to get her inspiration from watching Beyoncé, 32, wiggle her hips on stage.

She told HELLO! magazine: "I'm a huge fan of Beyoncé and I do love to Twerk. I am mesmerised by it. It's unbelievable how they do it. I always like it when a new dance arrives on the scene."

The blonde beauty even had a go at shaking her derrière on stage at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, after accepting the Hasty Pudding Theatricals' Women of the Year award in January.

However, Dame Helen admits the energetic dance move didn't come easily to her and she may have had to practice a few times in front of a mirror beforehand.

When asked if she secretly practised in front of a mirror first, she replied with: "I actually might have done that".

The Woman of the Year honour is given to performers who have made lasting contributions to entertainment.

She said of her award at the time: "How very saucy of the Hasty Pudding organisation to offer me their award. As someone who adores Pudding in all its manifestations ... Suet, Christmas, Treacle, Bread and Butter, Yorkshire, Plum, Figgy, etc., etc., I am so looking forward to the famous Hasty Pudding."
