The 'Ghost Whisperer' actress caused a sensation in 2010 when she introduced to the world the concept of adding jewels to her intimate area but she admitted it's not something she does very often any more.

She told America's ELLE magazine: "I did it for a few OB-GYN appointments. Just to make my doctor laugh. But I haven't vajazzled since.

"I did think about it yesterday."

Despite her years in the spotlight, the 39-year-old actress - who has children Autumn, four, and Atticus, three, with husband Brian Hallisay - insists her life is very boring.

She said: "Sometimes I think I've been so boring that people kind of had to create drama [around me]. Because, really, I'm doing my laundry and eating frozen yogurt at home."

Jennifer previously spoke about her love of vajazzling and how she enjoyed having a "sparkly secret" in her pants.

She said: "It's where you stick Swarovski crystals on the female area to add a little glitz and glamour. I actually named it that because it's like BeDazzling for your hookah.

"The fun part of being a girl is that there are little beauty things you can do to make yourself feel special. I can walk around all day and think, 'Nobody has any idea that I have a sparkly secret in my pants right now.' "

However, after Jennifer wrote about the practice in her 2010 dating guide 'The Day I Shot Cupid', she admitted she was inundated with strangers keen to show off their own intimate adornments.

She said: "It kind of took off after I wrote about it in my book, and now I have strangers coming up to me all the time like, 'Oh, my God, I'm vajazzled right now. Want to see?' I'm like, 'No, I don't - but congratulations!"
