Dame Judi Dench has seized the day and with her first tattoo at 81 years old.
The legendary actress had ‘carpe diem’ inked on her right wrist as a birthday gift from her daughter, Finty, according to The Sun.
“That’s my motto: Seize the day. Finty gave it to me for my 81st birthday — she’s wonderful with surprises,” she said.
“Mind you the company of A Winter’s Tale, which I was doing at the time, used to say that it said fish of the day."
Dench has been thinking about getting her first tattoo for a while, telling Surry Life last year: “I am tempted to have a tattoo to mark my birthday. Finty’s very keen on me having one.
“There’s an Indian symbol that I like which supposedly represents life and love and everything.
“One of the cameramen who worked on The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel told me what it meant, but I’m a bit nervous in case I’m being set up … It might be unbelievably rude!”
The James Bond actress is quite the jokester, playing a prank on Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and pretending she had a tattoo of his name on her bottom.
“He still thinks it’s tattooed. My make-up lady painted it on. He didn’t believe me so I showed him,” she said.
