Getting older in Hollywood sounds like a lot of work. Especially when you’ve been in the business (and consistently booking jobs) for nearly 40 years. Can you imagine how stressful it must be to have the whole world watching you go from age 20 to age 60, right before their very eyes and in the glare of flashbulbs? *shudders* Super strict diets, expensive beauty treatments, thousands of dollars in plastic surgery, constant exercise and body maintenance. Where do you find the time to act when you’re spending all your time trying to look young?
Jane Seymour got her big break at the age of 22, when she snagged the role of Bond girl Solitaire in the James Bond flick, Live and Let Die, she was instantly immortalized as a major babe. Flash forward half a century later, and Seymour, now 62 and a grandmother, still looks like a million bucks and is still starring in successful films. The actress hit the red carpet for the premiere of her latest flick, Thanks For Sharing, and stunned with a youthful glow typically reserved for stars half her age. Looking that lovely couldn’t possibly come naturally, could it?
“I cut bangs,” she said when asked about her noticeably energized look.
“It’s been a few months now, but it changed my life — cut bangs, cut my hair a little bit shorter, she said. “I had side bangs forever. [Now] I have full bangs.”
Earlier this year, Seymour and her husband of 20 years announced that they’d be getting a divorce. And I can’t help but think that he MUST be kicking himself repeatedly, with great force, right this very minute. Because even when standing next to her Sharing co-star, Queen GOOP herself (Gwyneth Paltrow), Seymour slayed.
“Since I’m not a Botox babe, you know, bangs work,” she said of alternative anti-aging methods.
Of course, if you are a Botox babe, ain’t nothin’ wrong with that. You do you. But it’s nice to see a more natural alternative to aging on the big screen every now and then. So you go, Jane Seymour! 4 inches of bangs for you, Jane Seymour!
