Los Angeles, Jan 9 (IANS) Actress Jane Seymour says she is flattered to be considered a sex symbol and is thankful to people for considering her a full-blooded woman.
“I don’t quite understand what a sex symbol means, but am I still a full-blooded woman? Definitely! And 69, to me, just appears to be a number. (It’s) flattering. I’m feeling incredibly healthy and well,” Seymour said, according to a femalefirst.co.uk report.
The 69-year-old actress added that she feels lucky that she can “represent (her) own age group” on screen and also play younger characters.
“At the same time, I think it’s lovely that I get to play the 70- and 80-year-olds I’m playing and really represent my own age group onscreen as well. I also often play younger than me,” Seymour, who has been married four times, told people.com.
Recently the actress shared that she used her divorces to make herself a better person.
“(The most important thing I learned) is to let go. To try to find a way to communicate and keep what was good in the relationship. Especially when co-parenting. And I tried to look at my side of things: ‘What could I have done differently?’ But it’s hard when you’re a mother and you work,” Seymour said.
“It means sometimes you’re gone. And sometimes you may be in a relationship where they would rather that you were there 24/7 and never worked. That hasn’t actually been the case with me, but that’s the only thing I can look at that I did really wrong — I went to work. But I was providing for the whole family, so it’s very hard,” she added.
