Jane Seymour showing pieces at Wentworth Gallery

Jane Seymour likes to keep life interesting.

The English actress, 62, is wearing her artist hat when she appears at Wentworth Gallery to show off her original works at two separate shows. Seymour will gladly discuss the pieces, from small watercolors to oils and mixed media.

But if you want to chat about other topics, she’s amenable.

When wearing her grandmother hat, Seymour revels in speaking about her brood, especially her three grandkids. She’s especially proud of 4 1/2 month old Willa, whom Seymour just taught to swim.

“She’s a water baby, a Zen baby, very chill,” she says of Willa. “She’s just one of those beautiful, calm children. She’ll just stare at you and melt your soul with her beautiful blue eyes.”

Must be in the genetic makeup. Seymour looks fantastic, crediting good eating and taking care of herself. She works out at least three to four times a week, drinks power juices in the morning and stays away from the stuff she craves.

“I try to eat my vitamins from nature, from food,” she explains. “But I love crackers, salty things rather than sweet. If I cheat, it’s dark chocolate with orange peel.”

What’s great about the Hollywood vet’s career is the unexpected roles. Few could forget the randy cougar from Wedding Crashers. On a recent episode of TNT’s Franklin & Bash, the sexy senior was jailed for being a prostitute, aka sex surrogate, and kissed Heather Locklear.

TV diehards still remember her as sweet, kind Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. She and costar Joe Landa remain pals. “It was funny; he came over the other day, and I have the old costumes in my attic. And for a laugh we dressed up and posted the pictures on my Instagram and got about 50 comments right away.” Tech-savvy, too?

“I love Instagram. You don’t have to write anything. You just put it out there,” she says. “I’ve been a dinosaur, and I’m trying not to be one anymore.”

    Cameron Diaz defends bestie Drew Barrymore

    Don’t mess with Cameron Diaz, at least when it comes to her friends. During the around the world media blitz for her latest bomb Sex Tape, the actress called in to Australia’s KIIS 106.5’s Kyle & Jackie O show, and cut short an interview with co-host Kyle Sandilands after he made a comment about her Charlie’s Angels costar Drew Barrymore. Sandilands remarked that the girl in the raunchy comedy (Giselle Eisenberg) reminded him of Barrymore in ET, adding snarkily that he hoped she didn’t go down the same path of drug use. Diaz hit back: “I’m sure, Kyle, you’ve never been through a drug phase, have you? Or alcoholism or anything like that? Pretty clean; always did it right? Congratulations,” then cut the interview short and hung up.
