Even the famous have bad days too...

As spotted in the Mirror today :

Former sex bomb Jane Seymour admits she has never recovered from the "audition from hell" which took place during her days as a breast-feeder.

It happened back in 1983 when she was hoping for a part in The Thorn Birds.

"I was told I should stop breast-feeding because I was looking too voluptuous. I had just given birth to my daughter, Kate Flynn. I really wanted this part, so I stopped four weeks before the audition."

Then came the screen test with leading man Richard Chamberlain. "I was lying on top of Richard and my hormones jolted," recalls Jane. "My milk came back. There was this puddle on Richard's bare chest. I was mortified. I knew I had failed the audition.

"They hired Rachel Ward. Richard axed me from any show he ever did."
