Jane Fonda is speaking about the plastic surgery she’s received.
Fonda, 84, spoke with Vogue about her H&M Move campaign in a feature published on Tuesday and opened up about her thoughts on aging.
Jane Fonda Regrets Getting a Facelift, Encourages Aging Gracefully
“I’m almost 85, but I don’t seem that old,” the Oscar-winning star said.
“So getting young people to stop being afraid of being old, helping people realize that just because you’re a certain age doesn’t mean you have to give up on life, give up on having fun, give up on having boyfriends or girlfriends, making new friends, or whatever you want to do.
She went on to confess how she doesn’t hesitate to reveal her age when asked, however, she also tells herself, “Yeah, Fonda. You have money. You can afford a trainer. You can afford plastic surgery. You can afford facials. You can afford the things that help make you continue to look young. That is true. Money does help. Good genes and a lot of money, as somebody once said.”
Speaking about her own history with plastic surgery, Jane Fonda said, “But then as I’m saying that, I’m thinking we all know a lot of women who are wealthy who’ve had all kinds of facelifts and things like that and they look terrible. I had a facelift and I stopped because I don’t want to look distorted. I’m not proud of the fact that I had [one].”
“Now, I don’t know if I had it to do over if I would do it. But I did it. I admit it, and then I just say, okay, you can get addicted. Don’t keep doing it. A lot of women, I don’t know, they’re addicted to it.”
She added that while, “I don’t do a lot facials I don’t spend a lot of money on face creams or anything like that, but I stay moisturized, I sleep, I move, I stay out of the sun, and I have good friends who make me laugh. Laughter is a good thing too.”
Fonda has no problem talking about aging.
Back in April, Fonda informed CBS Sunday Morning, “I’m super-conscious that I’m closer to death. And it doesn’t really bother me that much. What bothers me is that my body is, you know basically not mine!”
She continued, “My knees are not mine, my hips are not mine, my shoulder’s not mine. You’re looking at somebody who’s only me from here up.”
