Actress Jane Seymour is featured in Playboy, marking the third time she’s posed for the magazine since she was first featured in its pages in 1973. And according to Seymour, 67, she feels even “sexier now” than she did when she played a Bond girl opposite Roger Moore in Live and Let Die.
“There’s an enormous freedom in having lived as long as I have. Like my father used to say, I’m comfortable in my own skin,” she told Playboy’s Rebecca Haithcoat. “I’m not trying to prove anything to anyone. When you’re younger, it’s all about ‘look at me.’ I’m not trying to get anyone to look at me.”
“[Back] then,” the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress added, “I was like, ‘Oh gosh, I’m supposed to be sexy. What is that?!’”

In November, Seymour revealed that she almost quit the entertainment industry entirely after her first Hollywood audition ended with her being threatened by a producer after she turned down his advances. Speaking to Haithcoat, Seymour said that she healed from that experience, and other traumas, by helping others.
“Everyone will have challenges,” she said. “Your natural instinct is to close up your heart and let it eat you up. Do something to help someone else. It will heal you. You’ll be like a magnet when you do that. Light to firefly.”
