Dame Judi Dench, one of the world's best actesses just announced that she was diangosed with macular degeneration and that she could completely lose her eyesight. Judi is best known for playing M in the James Bond series and has recieved an Academy Award, two Golden Globes, a Tony, and she's a Dame! She's awesome!
Judi described how her eyesight is now so bad that she has people read her scripts to her, “I can’t read scripts any more before because of the trouble with my eyes. And so somebody comes and reads them to me, like telling me a story.” We can't even imagine what that must be like, especially when you are actor!
Right now Judi is working on promoting her newest film, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which is about a group of British seniors who retire to India. It stars Dev Patel (from Slumdog Millionaire), Maggie Smith (Harry Potter), Bill Nighy, and Tom Wilkinson. It looks really cute and we can't wait to see it. Also, look out for Judi in the newest James Bond movie that comes later this year. (celebitchy)
