Jane Fonda opened up about getting a facelift.
The actress says she’s “not proud” of it.
“I did it. I admit it, and then I just say, okay, you can get addicted. Don’t keep doing it,” she said.
Jane Fonda doesn’t want you to fear getting older. She also doesn’t want you to fear looking older, which is something the Grace and Frankie star wishes she would’ve realized for herself before getting a facelift. “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,” she recently told Vogue. “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].”
The 84-year-old admitted that if she had life to do over again, she’s unsure if she would repeat the procedure, especially knowing that getting work done in general can be a slippery slope. “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 explained.
This isn’t the first time the actress has opened up about her plastic surgery experience. “I can’t pretend that I’m not vain, but there isn’t going to be any more plastic surgery—I’m not going to cut myself up anymore,” she told ELLE Canada in 2020. “I have to work every day to be self-accepting; it doesn’t come easy to me.”
In her 2018 HBO documentary Jane Fonda in Five Acts, she said she wished she felt more comfortable aging naturally. “On one level, I hate the fact that I’ve had the need to alter myself physically to feel that I’m OK. I wish I wasn’t like that,” she said. “I love older faces. I love lived-in faces. I loved Vanessa Redgrave’s face. I wish I was braver. But I am what I am.”
With that being said, it’s never too late to step into personal growth, which is exactly what Fonda is doing now. “What matters isn’t age, isn’t that chronological number. What matters is your health,” she told Vogue. “I don’t do a lot of 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.”
Because life’s too short not to learn from your past and keep living.
