The 56-year-old, aka man-eater Samantha Jones, says she doesn’t need a man in her life these days but revealed she’s still on diet she started over three decades ago to look hot.

‘When I hit my forties I thought, “I can’t play a sexy siren any more.” Almost 20 years later, it’s still going on,’ said the Liverpool-born actress. ‘I like to step outside of what people’s idea of me might be. I suppose that makes me a bit of a rule breaker.’

The star credits careful eating for her ability to snap up toy boys.

‘I think that’s because I take care of myself, which includes dieting, exercising and minimising stress. I joke that I’ve been on a diet since 1974, which is basically true.’

Shooting down men that are ‘intimidated’ by her sex appeal, Kim told Woman & Home: ‘If my accomplishments frighten someone, it’s nothing to do with me – that’s to do with them. But the men who are in my life see me as a person – as a woman – not as a character I’ve played.’

‘My male friends don’t seem to have any feelings of intimidation that I’m a 100-watt sex bomb standing next to them; they are able to distinguish between the Kim that is their friend, and the characters I have played.’

For now the ravishing star says she’s done with the fellas. ‘I’m not really looking for a man.’

‘My professional life has a lot of ups and downs but in my personal life, I’m pretty easy-going.’
