Jane Seymour, 68, claims she is ‘photographically better looking’ than when she was thinner – and refuses to cut her long hair just because she’s ‘over a certain age’

  • Actress says she weighs more than she’d like but being thin makes you look older
  • Claims she looks better ‘photographically’ and wouldn’t have cosmetic surgery
  • Told Platinum magazine she is ‘pretty low maintenance’ when it comes to beauty
  • Keeps figures by fast walking every day plus Pilates, Gyrotonics and weights
  • Refuses to cut her long hair because she has ‘never done what everyone says’

She may weigh ‘more than she likes’, but age-defying beauty Jane Seymour claims she is ‘photographically better looking’ now than when she was slimmer.

The actress, who turns 70 next year, says the old adage that ‘being thin makes you look older’ is true.

She also claims she’s ‘pretty low maintenance’ when it comes to her beauty regime, which involves getting her hair coloured every three to four weeks – and also refuses to cut her long longs purely because she’s ‘over a certain age’. 

Speaking to Platinum magazine, the London-born former Bond girl admitted she does suffer from insecurities, as ‘everyone does’.

‘Right now, I look at myself and think, “Gosh, I weigh more than I’d like” but photographically I’m looking better than I did when I was thinner,’ she said. 

‘The old adage that being thin makes you look older is true.’

Mother-of-four Jane has previously stated she is happy to fly the flag for older women ageing gracefully, and refuses to have cosmetic procedures like Botox.

She told Platinum: ‘I tried it in the past and just looked in the mirror and thought, “You know, this is not going to work for me.”

‘As an actor, you need to move your face as well as your body, so why would you paralyse it?’

She revealed her secret to looking youthful is ‘simple things’ like fast walking every day – which she enjoys doing on a beach when she’s in Malibu and in a warm coat when she’s marching around London.

‘I do Pilates, Gyrotonics and light weights,’ she added. ‘But beauty-wise, I’m pretty low maintenance — except for getting my hair coloured every three to four weeks. 

‘People say women shouldn’t have long hair over a certain age, but I’ve never done what everyone says.’

Speaking ahead of her milestone birthday in February next year, Jane said she is ‘very accepting’ of who she is and knows her ‘best attributes’.

‘I don’t feel old, because I like being part of the present tense rather than giving up and thinking, “Oh I just don’t know what’s going on these days! Oh, these young people!” That’s not me. Plus I’m very healthy and I have an amazing amount of energy,’ she told the publication.

Jane also revealed she is hopeful for a revival of Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman in her interview with Platinum magazine

‘By the time you’re in your sixties, you usually know which parts of your body are your best attributes. I’m short, I’m only 5ft 4in, so I do not look good in things that cut me up in lots of different colours. 

‘People think wearing black is flattering, but I think something light-coloured near your face is better because it reflects the light. There’s a reason Chanel designed a little black dress with a white collar.’

Jane also revealed she is hopeful for a revival of Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman, as its creator, Beth Sullivan, has written a concept for a series which starts 26 years later. 

‘It’s a different period of American history but actually even more important,’ she said.

‘It’s dealing with two things that we deal with today – immigration and women’s rights. So it could not be more pertinent in today’s world.’

Jane earned critical praise for her role as Dr Michaela ‘Mike’ Quinn in the Nineties television series, which earned her a second Golden Globe Award.
