We reported about this a few years ago, and it's so sad to hear that Dame Judi Dench's macular degeneration has progressed this far.
She can officially no long read scripts — or menus in restaurants — but the worst of it is that she can't really watch movies anymore either.
BUT, at 79, with 95 award nominations in her career, she STILL isn't ready to retire!
In fact, her powerful words bring tears to our eyes! She said:

Look who's fancy and dazzling??
Why, it's Dame Judi Dench!
The 77-year-old badass stood out in the crowd at the Skyfall premiere held at the Royal Albert Hall Tuesday night showing off some major bling!
And we're not just talking about her David Morris necklace and the rest of her sparkling jewelry!
Matching her floor-length ice blue gown and coat, Judi's neck ice was certainly shining bright as she sashayed down the red carpet.
What a neat idea, especially for a mature and elegant woman! Just goes to show you that age is only a number!

Oh man. This is starting to sound absolutely effing AMAZING!
And to think that this movie almost didn't happen!

Although the future of the James Bond franchise was uncertain for quite some time there, production of the Sam Mendes directed 23rd installment is gearing up, and it's being reported that Daniel Craig's third Bond girl will be none other than Pirates of the Caribbean actress Naomie Harris!
According to a spokesperson from Eon Productions, nothing is official, but the actress has been meeting with filmmakers about the part. Furthermore, the only person other than Craig confirmed for the flick is Judi Dench!
Well, no surprise there!
And Harris can certainly kick ass, as we saw in 28 Days Later, so we think she'll be a solid female lead!
Fingers crossed that the deal works out! We're starting to get psyched!
What do U think?? Are U looking forward to Bond 23?

Nice gams! Ha!
We kid, we kid! We applaud this whole-heartedly! It's inspired!
Narrated by Dame Judi Dench, Daniel Craig put together this TV spot for WeAreEquals.org, in honor of International Women’s Day.
See just how fierce 007 looks in drag in the video (above)!
Make sure you appreciate the ladies in your life on March 8th, from your mom to your friends to your co-workers!
P.S. - Does Dame Dench not have one of the most "fierce"some yet soothing voices you've ever heard???
