Mir­ren isn’t a be­liever in the afterlife

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Vet­eran British ac­tor He­len Mir­ren says that she has ac­cepted that death is a part of life.

“As much a part of life as any­thing else, (death can’t be ig­nored). We are all headed in that di­rec­tion, sorry to tell you! It’s gonna hap­pen,” fe­male­first.co.uk quotes the 72-year-old as say­ing. “So one might as well con­front it, and what bet­ter time to con­front it than the lat­ter part of your life?” says the ac­tor.

“As you travel through life, you do re­alise that you lose friends and col­leagues and death be­comes a part of your life and that hap­pens at ev­ery age. It’s not just what hap­pens to older peo­ple,” she adds.

How­ever, she hasn’t spent much time think­ing about what hap­pens to a per­son when they die. “I have no con­cept of the afterlife. I’m not into that sort of thing,” says the star, whose new movie, Winch­ester, is about a woman who feels haunted.
