Washington, Aug 2 (ANI): English actress Dame Helen Mirren has expressed regret for turning down a personal invitation from the rockers The Who.

Mirren had been asked by the bands late drummer Keith Moon to join them on stage for a show, but the actress declined the invite.

And shes regretted it ever since.

The 63-year-old actress, who had earned herself a name as a theatre star in the late 1960s and 1970s, looks upon that moment as her biggest mistake.

“It was my absolute failure as a rock ”n” roller - I so blew it, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

I really lost out there. I”ve regretted it all my life. It was a terrible mistake,” she added.

Moon, who was known for his exuberant drumming and his destructive lifestyle, died in 1978, aged 32. (ANI)
