The Judi Dench Interview: “Retirement? Wash Your Mouth Out”
Giles Hattersley (Vogue, 04/05/2020)
It was the third Wednesday in March, and profound panic had arrived in Britain. Schools were in limbo, businesses were shuttering, and the streets had taken on the surreal air of a science-fiction film as the country hovered on the brink of lockdown. For many, the first true sense of what the coronavirus pandemic would mean for everyday life was finally descending.
As the early spring sunshine streamed down on a fractious nation, in the English countryside a cool, calm 85-year-old was handed a pair of plush white doggy ears. “I don’t do social media at all,” Judi Dench tells me on the telephone, chuckling at the memory. “It was only because I had been given the ears by my daughter, Fint. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing. A bit of light-hearted fun to try and make people smile, hopefully.”

Judi Dench has become British Vogue’s oldest cover star, securing her first front page for the style arbiter at the age of 85.
The Oscar-winning actor was photographed just before lockdown for the magazine’s June issue, but the accompanying interview explores her experiences self-isolating at home in Surrey.
“I am sure I feel like everyone else, such unprecedented times are quite hard to comprehend,” she says. “What is a good thing is that it has made people aware of the predicament of others who are completely alone. If a great deal of kindness comes out of this, then that will be a plus.”
