The 69-year-old actress has said she isn’t sure she “understands” what being a sex symbol means, but admitted she’s thankful people consider her to be a “full-blooded woman”.

She said: "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.”

The ‘Ruby’s Choice’ star also said she feels lucky that she can “represent [her] own age group” on screen, as well as playing younger characters.

She added to People magazine: "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.”

Meanwhile, Jane - who has been married four times - recently said she used her divorces to make herself a better person, as she evaluated what she “could have done differently” each time.

She said: “[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. 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.”
