Dame Sheila Hancock said she’s glad she no longer has to “neglect” to have sex.
The 89-year-old actress, whose second husband John Thaw died in 2002, ponders why anyone is still the same after a “certain age”.
“Who’s going to bother?” she asked. “No, I’m happy, I really am.
“I mean it’s complicated, all about trying to please men.
“I don’t have to worry about that anymore. I do my own thing. ”
Dame Sheila is talking to Jo Brand, who suggests she might want to pay for a “child”.
But Sheila replied, “No, I have better things to do with my money…chocolate!” The pair spoke during Sheila’s Old Rage tour at the Richmond Theatre, South West London, this week, where she also revealed she can’t be bothered to worry about death.
“I can’t pretend that I don’t think much about death,” she said.
“I belong to a book club, it was our 20th anniversary, and one of them said: ‘This is our next 10!’
“I thought: ‘Are you sure about that?’
“Inevitably, you think you’re getting closer and closer to it… about what happens next, I can’t be bothered to worry about it.
“I’ll probably go and meet all the people I hate.”
