Say what you will about her movie choices (and you'd be right to say what you're saying), but never say that the Dench isn't up for it.

Her Royal Highness Dame Judi Dench was one of James Corden's guests on 'The Late Late Show' last night and, ever curious, asked her why, after 80 years of being ink-free, she decided to get a tattoo last year.

Turns out it was all on the whim of her daughter, who challenged her mother's sense of spontaneity while walking down the street in London and next thing she knew, she had 'Carpe Diem' tattooed on her wrist.

But it's not something she's going to repeat, although we agree with Corden in saying that she could definitely pull off more.
