Did You Know?
I had no film career until Mrs Brown
(1997), which Harvey Weinstein
oversaw. He gave a lunch for me at the time and I told him I had his name tattooed on my bum. I hadn't, I had my make-up lady design something that I showed him. He's never forgotten it.
Received the Film Actress award
for her role in Chocolat at The Variety Club Showbusiness Awards 2002. Unfortunately Ms Dench was in attendance at the Berlin Film Festival and couldn't attend the Awards ceremony, but was able to send a televised message congratulating the charity on its 50th anniversary.
Known for often playing dignified, strong willed women in positions of authority who are sometimes opposed or criticised by those under her.
