Veteran actress DAME Helen Mirren learned how to perform risque 'twerking' dance moves by watching footage of pop star Miley Cyrus on the Internet.

The Oscar-winning actress raised eyebrows in January when she showed off her butt-shaking skills during an event at America's Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Onlookers were stunned when the British star enthusiastically responded to a challenge to perform the dance, and now she has revealed she learned the routine by studying online clips of serial twerker Cyrus.

Mirren tells The Times newspaper, "I YouTubed it. If I read about anything I always look it up and see what's going on. I didn't practice. That was from memory. Me going, 'I think it's like this'."

The actress also spoke out to defend Cyrus, whose racy antics have drawn criticism since she overhauled her 'nice girl' image last year, adding, "I did a chat show with her three or four years ago and I was so impressed with her. She's so smart. Brilliant, clever girl. And confident. I was a huge fan immediately. I love her 'F**k you' attitude."
