At her current age as an octogenarian, Jane Fonda still possesses the dashing looks she is very much known for and could easily pass for a lady in her 40s. Her looks make us reflect on the popular saying about wines – “the older the finner’. Looking young is every woman’s longterm desire and Jane Fonda has found a way to achieve that which every other woman craves for.
In this article, we will share a bit of what we know about her secret to looking younger than her age.
Who is Jane Fonda and How Old is She?
Jane Fonda is a famous American actress, writer, author, fashion model, businesswoman, political activist, and former fitness show host. Her portfolio tells you just how talented and industrious the woman is. Many times, we can predict people’s age just by looking at their face but when we try that same logic with Jane Fonda, we just can’t get close to predicting her age by her looks. She was born on December 21, 1937, which means she clocked 80 in 2017. That definitely is not something anyone can predict by merely judging by her looks.
She was born as Jane Seymour Fonda in New York to Frances Ford Seymour and Henry Fonda. Her father, Henry Fonda was a film and stage actor and spent about half a century in the acting business. He also served in the United States Military under the United States Navy from 1942 to 1946. Jane’s mother was a Canadian-American socialist who was married to Jane’s father for 14 years until she passed away in 1950. Together, her parents gave birth to her and her two siblings. Jane’s brother Peter Fonda was also in the family business of entertainment as he was an actor, screenwriter, and movie director. Peter passed away on August 16, 2019, he was 3 years younger than his never-aging sister Jane. Peter has two kids, one of whom is Jane’s niece Bridget Fonda. Bridget is also an actress like the rest of the family.
Jane Fonda is currently not married, although she has been in three failed marriages. First was with Roger Vadim. Roger might have been Jane’s first husband but she wasn’t his first wife. Before meeting Jane, Roger had previously been married twice and after their divorce, he still went on to marry twice again. Jane and Roger got married in 1965 and divorced in 1973. She had her first child with Roger, a daughter named Vanessa Vadim.
The Hollywood icon later married American politician Thomas Hayden in 1973. The couple divorced in 1990. Jane and the former Member of the California Senate had two kids together, one is their biological child Troy Garity and the other is their adopted child Mary Williams. Their biological child Troy Garity is an American actor, a profession that clearly runs in the family blood.
Jane’s last marriage was to Ted Turner, an American businessman and founder of CNN and TBS. Jane and Turner’s marriage lasted fourteen years, between 1991 and 2001.
How Does Jane Fonda Manage To Look So Young?
One of the major questions that fascinate fans of the talented actress is how their favorite screen star has managed to maintain her body and look so young. First, Jane is 5′ 7” (1.73m) tall and she weighs 57 kg (126 lbs). Her bust, waist, and hips measurements are 35-25-35 inches respectively, which shows she does have an enviable curvey body.
What then is her secret? Jane is a work out-freak. She has been doing that since she was much younger. Back in the 1980s, she hosted a fitness TV series where she instructs her viewers on how to work out and keep in shape. In 1981, she further wrote a 254 pages book titled Jane Fonda’s Workout Book, which was published by Simon and Schuster. The book resulted in her workout videos.
Your second guess is as good as mine, the actress’ 35-25-35 inches body is very much aided by various surgeries. She has on several occasions admitted to having surgically enhanced her body parts – from getting a nose job to hip job, knee job and other body parts. She was quoted as saying, “I am sort of half-metal and half-bionic now”, which implies she has had quite a number of surgeries to enhance her body and her younger looks but despite all that, there is no doubt she knows just how best to take care of her blemishless skin.
