Dame Judi Dench certainly knows how to bust a move!

Appearing on the Tonight Show to promote her movie, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, the 80-year-old actress showed host Jimmy Fallon that despite her age she really knows how to have a good time...dancing! While discussing her forthcoming sequel, she dished to Fallon that everyone had to learn some Indian dance moves for a sequence at the end of the movie.

"There was a move I couldn't quite get at all," she explained of the "random" choreography.

The move she struggled to learn involved a circular hand motion and a clap, but in order to finally do it successfully she had to think of it as "wash the dog and clap when it's over" LOL!

Even with that visual, Fallon also had trouble mastering the move! Before transitioning to commercial break, he requested some Bollywood tunes so he could practice the "wash the dog and clap when it's over" dance move. Needless to say, he might want to leave it do Dame Dench!

The Philomena star, who has become known for her wit on and off the screen, continues to surprise us with her gumption! She previously revealed onstage at the Beverly Hilton that not only did someone famous once tell her that she would never make it in the entertainment business but also that she has a Hollywood icon's name tattooed on her bum!

"Blessed Harvey Weinstein, whose tattoo I still have on my bum, said [Queen Victoria] would be a proper [theatrical] film and it was," she revealed. "Well, he asked for that."

Multiple reports suggest Dench had his name tattooed on her backside because she owed her success in part to him. 

Whatever the reason, we can support any decision Dench makes! Watch the video above to see her get her groove on with Fallon.
