Jane Fonda Speaks out on Plastic Surgery: 'I Wish I Was Braver'

"I'm glad I look good for my age, but I've had plastic surgery".

But Fonda, who previously launched a workout video empire in her younger years, said she still puts in the work to stay in shape.

The 80-year-old actress has claimed that until two decades ago, her life was defined by the men around her - including father Henry Fonda, and three husbands Roger Vadim, Tom Hayden, and Ted Turner - but when she finally started living for herself instead of aiming to please, she was able to be the person she was supposed to be.

"On one level, I hate the fact that I've had the need to alter myself physically to feel that I'm OK", she says, casually dragging the unfair beauty standards enforced on women. "I wish I wasn't like that". I love older faces. I love lived-in faces. In 2015, she told The Guardian that she has "a fake hip, knee, thumb; more metal in me than a bionic woman", and that "the danger with surgery is you say: 'Oh this is good, let me do more.' It can be an addiction". I loved Vanessa Redgrave's face. "But I am what I am".

Fonda divorced her third husband Turner in 2001 and said that while she found the billionaire sexy and brilliant, she knew she had to leave the marriage in order to really be authentic to who she is.

According to the long-time Hollywood star, she had bags under her eyes so she had work done to them as well as her jawline so she could feel more comfortable with her body.

Fonda has spoken publicly about her plastic surgery in the past, particularly about women using surgery for unhealthy reasons. When you're young it can be this" - she said miming self harm - "and when you're older it can be plastic surgery.
