During L’Oréal's spring-summer 2020 ready-to-wear show at Paris Fashion Week, the 74-year-old actress decided to change things up a bit and run down the runway. Not only did the "Catherine the Great" star skip and prance, much to the audience's delight, she did so without her shoes.

"Stole the show," one fan commented, while another added, "YASSSS queen."

Opening up to Vogue backstage at the show, Mirren talked about the experience of aging while sharing her personal philosophy on the matter.

“It’s much better to age disgracefully!” she told the magazine. “Take it on the chin and roll with it. You die young or you get older. There is nothing in between! You may as well enjoy it.”

“My mother once said, ‘Never worry about getting older. I know the thought of you being 45 when you’re 25 is, ‘Oh, my God! Who wants to be 45?’ But it’s amazing because when you get to be 45, you’ll realize it’s actually very cool and you don’t want to be 25 again,’’ she explained.

“And I have to say, she was absolutely right. With every age comes advantages and disadvantages. And you tend to find that you don’t want to go back. You want to be exactly where you are with everything you’ve experienced.”
