Jane Seymour was stunned to be asked to star in new movie Wedding Crashers - because she didn't think Hollywood would trust her to do comedy.

At the age of 54, the actress, most famous for her roles as a Bond girl and Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman, was convinced she'd missed the chance to try being funny.

She says, "I think people didn't look at me and say, 'Oh yes, comedy.' I think they looked at me and said, 'Oh yes, she's either going to fall in and out of love or she's going to be a victim.' I don't think they ever said, 'funny.'"
