Washington, Nov 14: Dame Judie Dench has admitted that she has "worse nerves" now, when it comes to acting, than when she entered the industry, 54 years ago.
The 76-year-old veteran actress admits that she "never" has confidence in her ability and always relies on her director.
"I have worse nerves now, 54 years after entering this business, than when I started. I'm never confident about the work I do and I'm very, very reliant on a director," Contactmusic quoted her as telling The Observer magazine.
The 'My Week With Marilyn' actress however admits that she doesn't ever want to quit acting because she thinks the learning process is far too important to leave behind.
"If I retire I think I should fall over. You've got to keep learning. I think everybody should take the time to recite two lines of something every day. I've also just taken up Sudoku - bloody difficult, isn't it?" she added. (ANI)
