Some know Jane Seymour as an actress who portrayed a James Bond girl. Others may recognize her as the author of Jane Seymour’s Guide to Romantic Living, released in 1986.
And others still may recall how she accomplished a more unlikely feat — posing for Playboy at the age of 67.
Yes, that’s how old Seymour was when she did a shoot for the men’s lifestyle and entertainment magazine back in 2018. That makes her the oldest woman ever to pose for Playboy. No big surprise there.
At Seymour’s appearance was more than just a photo shoot. She explained on Instagram at the time how it is an example of how she still felt great (and by all accounts, still does today).
“I’m THRILLED to finally share this with you! I was recently photographed and interviewed in my home by Playboy,” she wrote in February 2018 “I open up about my career, my family, feeling better-than-ever at 67 and so much more!”
Seymour reiterated those feelings in her interview with the magazine.
“I feel much sexier now than I ever did when I was younger. Then I was like, ‘Oh gosh, I’m supposed to be sexy. What is that?! There’s an enormous freedom in having lived as long as I have,” she explained. “Like my father used to say, I’m comfortable in my own skin.”
The result can be getting hit on by men half her age — or younger.
“I find that very flattering,” she said. “I mean, usually you’re invisible by this age! I’m not trying to prove anything to anyone. When you’re younger, its all about ‘look at me.’ I’m not trying to get anyone to look at me.”
What is currently happening with her?
Seymour, now 71, added she prefers an all-natural look over the work that celebrities often get done on their faces and bodies as they age.
“I haven’t done any surgeries or injections or anything. I haven’t done any of it,” she said. “So I still look like ‘me.’ Everyday I’m kind of tempted, but then I look at people I know and I don’t [recognize] them. I’m authentically being me. That’s important to me.”
Seymour most recently headlined the Australian movie Ruby’s Choice as Ruby, a woman who is facing the challenges of early onset dementia.
