Los Angeles: Helen Mirren beat Jennifer Lopez to top a recent Body of the Year poll but the veteran actress says the pop diva is "about 1,000 per cent more beautiful" than her.
   
The 66-year-old British star, who is famed for her natural beauty and elegant style, earned almost 18 per cent of the votes compared to Jennifer, 42, who took nearly 8 per cent of the votes cast by over 2,000 members of LA Fitness gym.

But Mirren remained modest about the result, saying that Lopez, who is renowned for her curvaceous physique, deserved the award more than her, reported USA on Thursday.

"I think the voting was rigged in some way. It had to have been. JLo is about 1,000 per cent more beautiful from the top of her head to her little toe," Mirren said.
   
"I'm grateful for small mercies. I'll put it that way," she added.
   
Mirren's husband, filmmaker Taylor Hackford, is currently working on the film 'Parker' with Lopez. The Oscar-winning actress vowed to put voters of the poll to right when she next visits the set of the movie.

"When I get on set I am going to have a photo taken next to JLo to show what a terrible mistake they have made. I know she will be absolutely gracious and funny about it," she said.
