New York: Veteran actress Helen Mirren says she has had enough of stripping off onscreen after a lifetime of saucy roles in arty movies like "Caligula" and "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover".

The Oscar-winning actress, 70, said she won't sign on for anymore nude scenes, reported the Huffington Post.

"It seemed to be not a thing to get your knickers in a twist over. I was doing nude scenes (from) the first moment I started doing movies. It was the era.

"That's the good thing about getting older. You don't have to do that sort of thing any more... (Now) my pleasure pillows are purely for my husband," she said.

Mirren admitted she, however, never really understood what the big deal was about stripping on camera.

"Unfortunately, at least for my generation -- growing up we didn't say... And I love the fact that girls are so much more confident and outspoken than my generation were," Mirren said.
