Judi Dench is not fond of her 'Dame' title
Veteran actress Judi Dench was not too pleased when she was made a Dame, confessing she "hates" the regal title.
The 75-year-old 'Bond' star was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, the female equivalent of a Knighthood, in 1988.
But she is less-than-grateful with the title bestowed on her, insisting it makes her feel like a "teapot" that should be put in storage.
"I just don't like the title! I really don't like it at all. It's a discarded, put-away thing. Like one of those things you're given and you think, 'What the hell am I going to do with this?'
"You make yourself sound like a teapot, put away in a cupboard, behind a piece of glass. No, I hate that," said Dench.
