Jane Seymour was interviewed and photographed for Playboy, she revealed via Instagram.

The actress, 67, was photographed at her home in Malibu, California, and opened up about her new Pop TV show, Let’s Get Physical, as well as her 50-year career and her #MeToo experience.

After the Harvey Weinstein allegations flooded out in October, Seymour went on an Australian morning show to tell her story. In 1972, a producer asked her to do a screen test, but insisted she come to his house to do it. Once there, Seymour eventually realized that she wasn’t actually doing a screen test; the producer wanted something else. She left.

“The only reason I’ve ever told that story is that women should have a choice,” Seymour told Playboy. “A lot of women took the bait and lived happily ever after. My problem was that my agent knew. I was put in a situation where I couldn’t show what I could do. And I’m a person who, when something bad happens, I get over it and move forward.”

She also talked about aging and confidence: “I feel much sexier now than I ever did when I was younger. Then, I was like, ‘Oh gosh, I’m supposed to be sexy. What is that?!’ There’s an enormous freedom in having lived as long as I have. Like my father used to say, I’m comfortable in my own skin.”
