Along with striking a stunning pose, Jane opened up to the glossy about fashion, body image and her world famous mug shot.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On her infamous 1970 mug shot:
"It was like I had Richard Avedon in that jailhouse taking my mug shot; it’s a beautiful mug shot."
On her battle with body image:
"I was raised in the ’50s. I was taught by my father that how I looked was all that mattered, frankly. He was a good man, and I was mad for him, but he sent messages to me that fathers should not send: Unless you look perfect, you’re not going to be loved."
On enjoying her fashion moment:
"I’m vain. My arms are thin, but I’m vain about loose flesh. And so I’m careful that what I wear will show off my best parts, which are my waist and my butt. I have people in my life who will say, ‘Honey, you’re trying too hard.’ I like being saucy, but I’m 73 and a half. I’m still trying to find my way between matronly and coltishness."
We think you're far from matronly, Jane.
Come on! Look at that picture! Hawt!
