And if they did venture there, it would be in the most modest of concealing attire.
Dame Helen Mirren, however, is happy to flaunt her enviable curves and flat stomach in a bikini.
How does she do it? Dame Helen Mirren looked sensational while holidaying in Puglia, Italy this weekIt seems hard to believe that this is the same actress whose portrayal of the Queen won her an Oscar.
Yet this was no retouched studio shot, with the only work to transform her toned body having been carried out during gruelling hours in the gym.
Dame Helen is holidaying in Puglia, on the southern tip of Italy, with her film director husband Taylor Hackford, 63.

Bikini queen: The actress flaunted her enviable curvesShe bought a castle in the neighbourhood to celebrate her 2007 Academy Award for Best Actress.
She bought the 500-year-old building and grounds near Lecce for around £680,000 and immediately drew up big plans for the estate with refurbishment work starting last summer.
The property was uninhabitable, with tumbledown walls and a driveway that was little more than a dirt track.
One is cooling off: Helen takes a dipWhen the couple first visited the nearby village of Tiggiano to greet locals and - once they heard - civic officials, the welcome was so warm that a baker even made her a cake decorated with a scene from The Queen.
Her new Italian home is surrounded by high fortified walls and has a mature vineyard within its grounds. The Mediterranean can be seen half a mile away.
Dame Helen also owns an enormous home in California and a property by the Thames in Wapping, East London.
I can’t recall ever seeing a woman of 63 wearing a bikini. That doesn’t mean I haven’t seen one, just that I have probably blocked out the memory, but I am sure if they looked as good as Helen Mirren does in these pics, she’d warrant a second glance…
I think I can safely say that she totally fits into the GILF category; I would say GGILF, but I am not sure there even is one of them.
This is the same woman who played the Queen and won her an Oscar. She definitely was not sexy in that role.She is now a Dame and even has her own castle in Italy, so she does have Queenly manners, if not a Queenly figure.
See ladies, it is not hard to look good
OK, I gotta go and look at some young chicks now, just to get back on track, this granny stuff is starting to become a little disturbing.
Before I go, here is another pic for you.
