While Lucy Lawless is helping tear up the small screens in the Starz series lust and gore fest that is "Spartacus; Blood and Sand,” the tough beauty thinks that she may be too old to reprise the role that made her name if “Xena – the Warrior Princess” ever hits the silver screen.

The Kiwi actress, 41, says her days as the whip-ass warrior princess are almost surely done.

“By the time somebody does come up with that  (a movie version) I’m just going to be too old and I’m really sad about that. I feel like it’s a completely wasted franchise,” Lawless told Out magazine.

More is the pity Lucy, but with Starz having ordered a second series of Spartacus already, at least we will get to see you do your thing on the small screen for some time to come!
