During Jane's "first act," she made a name for herself when she fell into modeling and acting in the early '60s, even studying at the famed Actor's Studio with Marilyn Monroe. But it was her role as the sexy space siren in Barbarella that really made Hollywood take notice. Jane became a sex symbol.

Oprah: Was [being a sex symbol] important to you?

Jane: No.

Oprah: Would you have imagined yourself looking this great at 72?

Jane: Never. No. Not looking as good and not being in love and not moving back to Los Angeles. A lot of things that I would never, ever had imagined!
