Experience is a wonderful thing: Helen Mirren

believes she has become better with age.

The 67-year-old actress enjoyed doing stunts in 'Red 2' where she returns as the retired assassin Victoria.



Mirren, who won the best actress Oscar for her role in 'The Queen', says she does everthing better than before, reported New York Daily News.

"I do almost everything better now than I did 20 or 30 years ago. I eat better. I exercise better. I act better. And there are a few things I can do now that I probably couldn't do before. Experience is a wonderful thing," Mirren said.

The British actress says she does not have the time to sit back and enjoy accolades.

"You don't listen to that. It doesn't mean anything. It's your inner voice you listen to - you know, the one telling you, 'You're not great, you're crap'. I think the mystery of life is to constantly challenge yourself," Mirren said.

The actress now wants to be part of small but interesting projects.

"I want to mix it up more. I can't wait for another movie... I like doing small movies, art movies, with really visionary directors.
