She’s a Hollywood icon who continues to remain an inspiration to many by seemingly defying age and gravity.

And in a new interview, the ever-youthful Jane Seymour, who turned 70 on 15 February, says she isn’t worrying about growing old in the slightest.

"I feel the same," the British-American actress told NewBeauty magazine, whose cover she graces, adding that it probably helps that she’s a naturally positive person.

"I’m a glass-half-full person. My thinking is, 'Just be as young as you possibly can be'."

Last year she famously revealed that she "weighs the same as I did at 17" while attending ballet school in the UK.

"I try to keep fit and I try to eat healthily and but I'm never on a diet or anything," she said. "Everything in moderation – it works for me."
