Retirement is a rude word: Judi Dench

London: "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" star Judi Dench has no plans to give up work anytime soon.

The 80-year-old actress said she does not allow the word "old" to be used in her house, reported Daily Telegraph.

"I don't want any of those old words. I like 'enthusiastic' and I like the word 'cut' because that means you've finished the shot," she said.

Dench's latest film "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel", is a sequel to 2012's surprise hit movie.

The film follows a group of British pensioners who move to a retirement hotel in India, rediscovering themselves and love in the process.

"I think that's what the whole film is about. I don't want to be told I can't do something. I'll just have a go at it and I may make a terrible mess of it but I'd sooner make a mess than not have a go at all.
"I don't think age matters at all. What matters is your determination not to give up and not to stop learning new things, which I absolutely applaud," the actress said.
