Why Jane Seymour's claims that she's never had plastic surgery aren't quite true

Jane Seymour considers herself unusual in Hollywood – in fact, she says besides her, there's only one other female celebrity who's opted to age gracefully without any cosmetic intervention.

The actress claims she’s an anomaly in the surgery-loving industry as she’s never gone under the knife.

“I'm unusual in Hollywood in not having any work done,” Jane says. “I only know one other actress who hasn’t had it – though she might have now!”

The 71-year-old made the claims in an interview with the British tabloid Daily Express. She added that she’s chosen to remain natural as fillers and Botox would've hindered her acting abilities.

“I felt as an actress I needed to have all the moving parts moving,” Jane says. "I’m at the point in life where it’s not all about looking perfect – it’s about playing a character.”

But it seems she may have forgotten an interview she did with People magazine back in 2007 in which she admitted she'd had “minor” work done around her eyes in the 90s.

“Genetically I had baggy eyes and photographers said they didn’t want to spend money endlessly having to eradicate the bags,” she explained at the time.

In a later interview with Haute Living, Jane revealed she had a breast lift at 40.

“To set the record straight, when I was 40 and I’d gone through a horrible divorce, I had breast implants,” she told the publication in 2018.

“I did it because I breastfed my babies and there was nothing left. I was working as an actress and though I was against it, it seemed the right thing to do.”

But, Jane added, she never enhanced her breast size.

“I said, ‘I don’t want anything other than what I was born with. I just want what I was.”

Jane also admitted to trying Botox once but didn’t like it at all.

“The real problem was just as an actress, I couldn’t use my facial muscles. I’ve not done that since.”

Dame Joan Collins couldn't resist taking a dig at the former Bond Girl after her latest interview.

“I'm another #actress in #hollywood who hasn’t had any ‘work’ done @janeseymour – there’s many of us!" Joan wrote in an Instagram post.

The Dynasty star has previously said she doesn’t believe in tweakments – non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox or fillers – and simply relies on a good skincare routine.  

“I’ve never had them done and I’m not going to because I’ve seen some disasters,” the 88-year-old says.

But Joan has admitted in the past that she was tempted earlier in her career.

"I once went to speak to somebody during my Dynasty days and when they told me how much it'd cost, I told them, ‘No thank you, I’ll continue with my face cream’.”
