She launched to fame as Bond girl Solitaire in 1973's "Live and Let Die," but Jane Seymour thinks her body has improved.

The 62-year-old British actress, who has no less than four children, cuts a slim and toned figure in a pink bikini on the cover of the new issue of Closer Weekly. "God, I’m in better shape now in some ways than I was when I was doing the Bond film," she said.

In 1973, just four years after making her big screen debut as an uncredited chorus girl in "Oh! What A Lovely War," 22-year-old Seymour landed the role of virginal (but not for long, in the presence of Bond, of course) psychic Solitaire opposite Roger Moore in "Live and Let Die."

Four decades later, the "Franklin & Bash" star keeps up her appearance by spending three hours per week in the gym and doing various activities -- tennis, golf, swimming -- instead of dieting.

"I just want to be as healthy as I can be for as long as I can. No diets here," Seymour told Closer. "I hate to deny myself things. If I have pasta, I'll just eat half of it."

Though she did get breast implants after giving birth to twins in 1995, and has had an eye-lift and Botox, she said she would not try the latter again (she opts for bangs instead).

"For me it doesn’t work because I’m an actor and I need to be able to move every part of my face," she said. "I think I’m being hired a lot because I haven’t done all the stuff everyone else is doing."

So when does the sexagenarian feel at her most beautiful?

“When I’m holding my grandchildren and with people I love,” Seymour said.
