Dame Judi Dench says her eyesight has deteriorated so badly that she can no longer enjoy watching films, the Guardian newspaper reports.
At 82, she suffers from macular degeneration.
Dench was presented with the Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film at the Santa Barbara international film festival last week.
Jeff Bridges presented the award, saying he would vote for Dench for an Academy award for her performance in 'Victoria and Abdul,' in which she revived her role as Queen Victoria.
Dench praised Christopher Nolan’s 'Dunkirk,' though she admitted it was now hard to enjoy the movies.
“Because my eyesight is so bad now, I can’t actually see very much and so I do go, but a friend of mine usually has to say: ‘He’s kissing her now’ or ‘He’s walking away’,” she said.
