London: Actress Helen Mirren has revealed that the secret to having a bikini body like hers all lies in sucking the stomach in.

Mirren, 65, had been photographed wearing a bikini and looking in top shape while sporting a toned midriff.

“Holding your tummy in is another trick for making you look and feel good,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

“I don’t know why, but I do, by nature, hold my tummy in,” she said.

According to Woman And Home magazine, Mirren also revealed that she does have body hang-ups.

“Bits of my body are all right, but bits of me are horrible. To be honest, anything from the waist down I don’t really like,” she added.
