Jane Seymour became the oldest Playboy model when she posed for the men’s lifestyle publication four years ago at age 67.
Now at 71, Seymour has opened up in an interview with The Mirror about her appearance in the magazine, saying she hoped women her age would be encouraged.
“I just thought, ‘What? Why would they want a woman in her mid to late sixties to do Playboy?’ I was never going to be naked, but they were going to be celebrating being a woman at my age,” she said.
“And I just thought, ‘well, you know, that might be inspirational to some women who kind of give up.’”
The former Bond Girl noted that she’s always being told about women giving up as they get older, saying cutting your hair is often one of the first ways it happens.
“People have said, ‘When I had my first child, my husband told me I had to cut my hair off.’ Like, really?,” she said.
“And then I meet women who say, ‘I never cut my hair. Even though I have four children. I told my husband until Jane Seymour cuts her hair, I’m not cutting mine.’
“And then I point out the only reason I didn’t cut my hair is I had it cut once and I wanted it to flip – but it flops!”

“I feel much sexier now than I ever did when I was younger. There’s an enormous freedom in having lived as long as I have,” she said.
The Live and Let Die actress continues to prove she isn’t shy in showing off her figure, flaunting her toned body on social media during an intense pilates routine recently.
“Have you gotten your Wednesday workout in yet? One thing I like to remember when it gets tough is that although you may not be there yet, you’re so much closer than you were yesterday! You can do this!,” she wrote.
Seymour is set to star as the titular character in the upcoming television show, Harry Wild, in which she plays a retiree with a love of sleuthing.
