She may be 68, but Helen Mirren can still drop it like it's hot.

While being honored with the 2014 Hasty Pudding Award from the Hasty Pudding Theatricals at Harvard University, the Oscar winner was asked to twerk.

"I refuse to do it," she said. "I'm gonna find another way around it!"

But of course, she didn't, much to the delight of the crowd. And though she may dance like Miley, it's really Beyoncé whom Mirren admires most.

"I thinks she's quite extraordinary. I had the great opportunity to be on the same stage as her, not on the same time, but I was in the wings, at the Kennedy Center Honors, and she was performing, and I was kind of watching her prepare," said Mirren, according to People. "She had this incredible sense of concentration and energy and preparation. I was very impressed by that. Standing in the wings watching her was this explosion of energy. Quite spectacular."
