Jane Seymour: Sexy at 62!

Brooke Baldwin talks to guests about Jane Seymour as a bikini cover girl, and the living habits that keep her looking young and fit!

    My wife and I just finished viewing the News Room video clip discussing Jane Seymour’s cover for the magazine Closer. We were appalled by the anchor and commentators ensuing myopic discussion. The shows’ hosts appeared, albeit jokingly, threatened by Ms. Seymour’s physical appearance. The anchor even suggested, in not so many words, that although beautiful Ms. Seymour’s “countenance” did not seem to match her body. The other commentators flatly said it was wrong to have a 62 year old woman who looks like Ms. Seymour on the cover of a magazine. They asserted it set unrealistic standards for other women.

    The direction of their conversation was quite off point and misleading to the obvious intent of the article. On the cover of Closer magazine, Ms. Seymour clearly states “I hope I can inspire people”. Yet the majority of the discussion revolved around Ms. Seymour’s seemingly unattainable “God given”, “ectomorphic” figure.

    Given the alarming rise in obesity rates in Western culture, Ms. Seymour’s bikini cover photo merely provides objective proof that her diet and exercise regimen have made for good health and fitness into her 60s. It’s a shame the producers of CNN News Room, its anchor and commentators did not see fit (no pun intended) to focus on Ms. Seymour’s healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise regimen in “hopes of inspiring people” themselves.

    In many other cultures, Scandinavian and French to name just two, Ms. Seymour’s appearance would be much more the “norm”. It only appears “out of the norm” due to the high prevalence of obesity and unhealthy lifestyles in Western society.

    Magazines such as Victoria’s Secret, Vogue, and Cosmopolitan routinely feature models whose pictures are aggressively photo shopped into unattainable, dysmorphic and objectified images. These magazines exist solely to sell the idea: “buy this clothing and you will look like her”.

    Amusingly, both of the guest commentators are models, one by her own admission is beautified by “a village” of individuals. It’s almost a joke: Ms. Seymour is not a model and is not made up. She looks the way she does because of how she lives her life.

    Yet, there was no mention of anorexic looking models appearing in the aforementioned publications and the real damage they do in espousing a fictitious, physical feminine ideal. An ideal which has no relationship to a healthy lifestyle.

    Finally, I doubt there would have been much fanfare had a male actor in his 50s or 60s buffed up for a magazine shoot merely to promote a movie.

    The real culprit here appears to be the media who has propagated a supposed controversy in an effort to merely attract viewership. Ironically, relative to real journalism, this type of “infotainment” is sadly analogous to the unattainable feminine ideals which were criticized in this CNN News Room segment.

    Kind regards
    Dan
