London: Helen Mirren has hit out at fashion critics for making stars feel stressed about their appearance.

The Oscar winning actress thinks it`s unfair that female stars are given such a hard time by fashion critics to look perfect on the red carpet and said it`s a challenge picking the right outfit to wear to high profile events.

"There is a lot of pressure about the gown. It`s very unfair on us girls, it`s uncomfortable and stress-making and then they tell you, `You look crap`," she said.

The 67-year-old also spoke about filming love scenes in movies and why she finds them particularly difficult, reported Daily Star.

"It is so technical it becomes a mathematical thing to be worked out," she added.
