The 66-year-old actress - who is married to director Taylor Hackford - is "fascinated" by "sexy" imagery and is a big fan of Madonna and Lady Gaga.
She told The Times newspaper: "I like sexy stuff. I like looking at sexy photos. I loved Madonna`s `Sex` book and I love Gaga.
"To be honest, I rather like watchingpoledancing. Not that I`m gay or anything, I just like the ballet of it."
Three years ago, Helen was pictured showing off her trim physique in a red bikini while holidaying in Italy, and after admitting she feels "haunted" by the picture, the actress is now desperately hoping it won`t overshadow her career achievements when she passes away.
She said: "I just hope they don`t print that bikini photo on my obituary page. Imagine it. HelenMirren passes - phwooar!"
The `Debt` star also jokingly admitted she may consider having cosmetic surgery in the future.
She said: "I`m sure the time will come fairly soon when I feel the need for it."
