Judi Dench has made history as the oldest person to be featured on the cover of British Vogue.
The 85-year-old Oscar winner is photographed wearing a floral silk organza Dolce & Gabbana trench coat for the magazine's June issue.
"Before the coronavirus pandemic forced the world into lockdown, @GilesHattersley visited her home in deepest Surrey to discuss everything from why retirement is completely out of the question, to how she has become a social media phenomenon – without being on social media herself," British Vogue captioned a photo unveiling the new cover.
Dench opens up about life, love and quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic.
"I am sure I feel like everyone else, such unprecedented times are quite hard to comprehend,” she said in an interview with the magazine. “What is a good thing is that it has made people aware of the predicament of others who are completely alone. If a great deal of kindness comes out of this, then that will be a plus.”
British Vogue Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful also shared the latest cover on Instagram, saying, "In uncertain times, Dame Judi Dench is comfort personified. Now in her ninth decade, and one of the most celebrated actors of a generation, as well as a national treasure, she is still a firm fixture on Hollywood's A-list."
He continued, "For the June 2020 issue of @BritishVogue, the star gets candid with @GilesHattersley to discuss romance and marriage, her impressive accolades, and the art of aging gracefully."
When asked about her thoughts on retirement, Dench answered, "No, no, no, no. Don't use that word. Not in this house. Not here. Wash your mouth out" -- signaling she has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.
Previous to Dench's historic debut cover, actress Jane Fonda was British Vogue's oldest cover star at 81.
