Age is just a number, an adage epitomized by Dame Helen Mirren.

The 66-year-old actress was named “Body of the Year” by 2,000 people who exercise and take polls conducted by L.A. Fitness. She beat model Elle MacPherson, Kelly Brook and Jennifer Lopez. The Dame even bested Pippa Middleton, who came in eighth place with only 4 percent of the vote. The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister also lost the coveted “Rear of the Year” award earlier this year.

Mirren’s win should came as no surprise to people who have seen pictures of the sexagenarian in a bikini or sitting topless in a bathtub

On the male side of the rankings, new dad David Beckham was No. 1.
