Jane Fonda: “I know I’m close to death”

Speaking of the seventh (and final) season of the “Grace and Frankie” series, Jane Fonda confessed how she experiences aging.

In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning to promote the latest season of her series Grace and Frankie on Netflix, Jane Fonda frankly confessed how she experiences her aging. And, without putting aside her irony, she inevitably left her audience a good life lesson. That exceeds any age limit.

Jane Fonda: “You can be young at 85!”

“I am aware that I am close to death. And that doesn’t bother me much. What bothers me is that my body, after all, is not mine! “She started the 84-year-old actress, two-time Oscar winner and a true forerunner of fitness. “My knees aren’t mine, my hips aren’t mine, my shoulder isn’t mine either. You’re looking at someone who is me, but only from here up (while she points to her face, ed) », she continued.

So what does aging mean for the actress and activist? “The thing is, if you’re alive… And I’m relatively healthy for an older person… I mean, I’m nearly 85… Well, the thing is, if I’m still alive and at work, well wow. So who cares if I don’t have my old joints, if I can’t ski, cycle or run anymore, ”she continued. And the interview ended with a message, a claim for freedom and happiness: “You can be really old at 60, and you can be really young at 85!”

The series with Lily Tomlin

The confession of the actress came on the occasion of the promotion of the seventh season of Grace and Frankie, on Netflix from April 29. This is the last season of the longest running series of the famous streaming platform. The 95 episodes tell the story of Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin), two women left single after their husbands (business partners for over twenty years) left them to be with each other.

In Grace and Frankie (comedy co-created by Marta Kauffman, one of the creators of Friends), Fonda and Tomlin tell of the friendship of two women over 70 who find themselves living together, helping each other and becoming the protagonists of a new fascinating journey of life. A story that brought them closer even in real life, turning them into true friends. Ready to cheer for each other.
