In a new interview with Megyn Kelly, Jane Seymour revealed a high-powered producer harassed her when she was in her early twenties. Jane said she was “told to go to his house” because there was a big screening of a movie with many people, but the producer said he needed to show her a “little test.”
The 66-year-old Golden Globe Winner said she – naively – went there and didn’t expect for him to make a pass at her. She explained, “you have to understand, this guy was the single most powerful man in Hollywood at the time – I mean the most.”

The producer allegedly told Jane she was “amazing” and was “fantastic” and was excited to include the young actress in the movie, but he implied that she had to sleep with him to get the part.
The unnamed person said to Seymour, “you know what you have to do” and put his hand on her leg. As a response, she became alarmed and backed down immediately which caused the executive to become angry.
The producer told the Wedding Crashers star, “If you ever tell anyone you won’t work in the industry ever again or anywhere in the world.”
As a result, Seymour decided it would be best to step back from Hollywood. She claimed that she “gave up” and had no intentions of returning to the USA. After some time, Jane came back to America to work on her career and had another encounter with the man.
However, she brought her agent along and avoided a possible altercation. Seymour said he didn’t even remember her. While many people are curious to know the man’s identity, she revealed that – out of respect – she wouldn’t say his name.
