Jane Fonda Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Lady Jayne Seymour Fonda, to give her a full name, was born on 21st December 1937, in New York City, New York, USA of Italian, Dutch, French English and Scottish elements in her ancestry. She is a legendary actress, the winner of Academy, BAFTA, Emmy and Golden Globe Awards. It is worth mentioning that acting is the main source of her net worth, but Jane is also known as a writer, fashion model, fitness coach and even a political activist. Fonda has been active in the entertainment industry since 1959.

Is this outstanding actress rich enough? It has been reported that the current net worth of Jane Fonda is as high as $220 millions. Among the highest paid characters created by Jane Fonda are the following roles: Alice Martin in “The Electric Horseman” (1979) – $2 million, Judy Bernly in “Nine to Five” (1980) and Iris Estelle King in “Stanley & Iris” (1990) – $3.5 million. Moreover, she owns a house in Hollywood Hills West valued at $8.5 million. Recently, the actress has sold a ranch in Santa Fe, Mexico for $19.5 million.

Jane Fonda Net Worth $220 Million

To begin with, Jane Fonda’s father was the great actor Henry Fonda, a difficult act to follow, but fortunately they were close – particularly as her mother Frances committed suicide when she was 12 – and encouraged his daughter in her interest, and they even appeared together on stage. Jane debuted as on the Broadway stage in the play “There Was a Little Girl” (1960) and was nominated for the Tony Award. Meanwhile, she appeared on the feature film “Tall Story” (1960) directed by Joshua Logan. A couple of years later, the actress rose to the prominence after starring in the film “Period of Adjustment” (1962) directed by George Roy Hill. Critics consistently praised her acting, and Fonda received two nominations for a Golden Globe and Laurel Awards. After this success, she continued her career at the same pace, receiving top rated nominations for her roles in the films “Cat Ballou” (1965), “Any Wednesday” (1966), “Hurry Sundown” (1967), “Barefoot in the Park” (1967) and “Barbarella” (1968). The role of Gloria Beatty landed in the “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?” (1969) was a successful continuation (worth Kansas and New York Film Critics’ Awards) and her best role landed so far but all roles added to her growing net worth.

In 1971, Jane Fonda appeared in the film “Klute” directed by Alan J. Pakula. This role brought her worldwide recognition as well as a number of awards including Academy, Golden Globe, National Society of Film Critics and others. Afterwards, Jane managed to create many roles worth awards and nominations in the films “Julia” (1977), “Coming Home” (1978), “Comes a Horseman” (1978), “California Suite” (1978), “The China Syndrome” (1979), “On Golden Pond” (1981), “The Morning After” (1986) and “Old Gringo” (1989). From 1990 to 2005, Fonda took a break and didn’t appear on either the big screen or on television. In 2013, she proved to be worth a nomination of Screen Actors Guild Award for her role in the film “The Butler” (2013). Currently, she is working in the upcoming films “The Early Years”, “Fathers and Daughters” and “Crystal” which are going to be released in the near future.

Moreover, Jane Fonda has added much to her wealth as a fitness coach. Since 1982, she has released 22 workout videos under the franchise of “Jane Fonda’s Workout”, of which more than 17 million copies have been sold. Furthermore, several autobiographic books about the life of this phenomenal personality have been published. Finally, Jane Fonda has been prominent in protests and support, such as against the Vietnam War and Iraq War, and positively in the support of women’s rights, including advocacy against violence and abuse.

Jane Fonda has been married three times. Her first husband was the famous film director and producer Roger Vadim, from 1965 to 1973: they have a daughter. Her second husband was political and social activist Tom Hayden from 1973-1990: they have a son. Fonda then married media magnate Ted Turner in 1991, however, they divorced in 2001. Fonda has been in a relationship with record producer Richard Perry since 2009.

#Fact
1Visited Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota on Thanksgiving day 2016, where she served dinner to about 300 demonstrators against the Mandan pipeline.
2A 1968 image of her topless, arms crossed, windblown and pouty on a French beach became a classic pinup poster.
3Turned down The Thomas Crown Affair (1968).
4Received $2 million from Columbia Pictures in 1979 to appear in a prison movie to be called "Her Brother's Keeper" whether or not it was ultimately made, which it wasn't. Such an arrangement is known informally as a pay-or-play contract.
5Owner of a Coton De Tulear named Tulea.
6Heinous rumors about her trip to Hanoi have circled around the internet since two letters purportedly written by Vietnam veterans were posted online in the late '90s. One of the made-up myths, in précis, is that four prisoners of war listed as missing in action slipped Ms. Fonda tiny pieces of paper with their social security numbers so to identify themselves to American authorities - only for her to hand the pile of notes to a North Vietnamese commanding officer who ordered beatings for the men in question, killing all except one who lived to tell the story. The other tale is that a POW was struck in the face with a wooden baton for refusing to talk to Fonda on a separate occasion during the same visit and suffers from permanent double vision as a result of that punishment. The claimed authors of these letters are Col. Larry Carrigan and Air Force pilot Jerry Driscoll, each of whom have repeatedly denied both writing the letters and the incidents described therein. In actuality, no POWs would have needed to sneak Fonda notes with their socials written on them, as she could simply have remembered their names and repeated them once she returned home. Plus, there was no reason for the POWs' identities to have been kept a secret in the first place. While in North Vietnam, Fonda only met with a single group of seven POWs, none of whom said they were coerced into the meeting. Former POW Edison Miller said the entire camp he was in wanted to meet her and certainly no one was tortured for refusing to do so. Fonda brought mail for imprisoned U.S. servicemen with her to Hanoi, and she returned to the United States carrying 241 letters from American POWs back to their families. She even called the wives of some of the men she met with to provide them with updates about their husbands.
7Sometimes goes by the alias Jane S. Plemiannikov.
8Has an IQ of 132.
9With help of lawyers, she gained access to her late mother's medical records from the Austen Riggs Center in Massachusetts. The records revealed that Frances Seymour had nine abortions before giving birth to Jane.
10Self-confessed member of the "Mile High Club".
11Shared the cover of Vanity Fair magazine's 2016 Hollywood issue with, Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlotte Rampling, Rachel Weisz, Lupita Nyong'o, Brie Larson, Alicia Vikander, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Helen Mirren, Diane Keaton and Saoirse Ronan. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz.
12Participated in the Vancouver Greenpeace Rally along with roughly 5,500 others (including Rachel McAdams) to protest oil drilling in British Columbia. [June 2015]
13Came out in support of Marion Cotillard and Bradley Cooper to help the actors get Oscar nominations for their films Deux jours, une nuit (2014) and American Sniper (2014), respectively. Both ended up being nominated for the 87th Academy Awards.
14Director Richard Tuggle lobbied for Fonda to play the leading female role in Tightrope (1984).
15Met with James Stewart about the possibility of playing his daughter in The FBI Story (1959) which would have been her first movie, but she expressed disinterest in the role which instead went to Diane Jergens.
16Had a crush on Anthony Perkins and tried to seduce him during the making of Tall Story (1960) until she discovered he was gay.
17Sister-in-law of Parky Devogelaere.
18Was amongst those suggested by United Artists for the role of Diana Christensen in Network (1976).
19Her top favorites of the films she's done are Coming Home (1978), The Dollmaker (1984), Klute (1971), They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969) and Julia (1977).
20Pulled out of Music Box (1989) before production started and was replaced by Jessica Lange.
21Was in consideration for the role of Elaine Robinson in The Graduate (1967), eventually played by Katharine Ross to great acclaim.
22Turned down Patty Duke's role in Valley of the Dolls (1967).
23Owns a ranch in New Mexico.
24Ex-stepdaughter of Susan Blanchard and Afdera Franchetti.
25Childhood friend of Brooke Hayward. It is often said that Hayward and Fonda were stepsisters, but this is false, since Brooke's mother Margaret Sullavan divorced Jane's father Henry Fonda before either of them were born.
26Protestors in Waterbury, Connecticut, led by a Republican political activist who was a WWII veteran, threatened to disrupt filming of Fonda's 1990 picture Stanley & Iris (1990), but when filming began she was well-received by the community, and the city's Board of Aldermen decisively defeated a resolution saying she was not welcome in the city.
27Was in psychoanalysis for five years.
28An undistinguished student at Vassar, much of Fonda's time there was spent sleeping in during the day and staying out late drinking at nearby men's universities. She dropped out after two years and went to Paris to study art with aspirations of becoming a painter, but instructors told her she wasn't good enough. She moved back into her father's house and briefly worked as a secretary until her boss fired her, then enrolled at the Actors Studio in New York at the encouragement of her friend Susan Strasberg (whose father taught courses there) and supported herself with modeling jobs while trying out for parts in movies.
29Her war protests canceled the impact of her first Oscar for Klute (1971). Although Fonda scaled back her career between 1972 and 1976 in favor of activism, none of the three films she did make during that period received wide distribution. At the same time a sub-rosa Hollywood campaign was going on to destroy the actress's respectability and spread false rumors about her subversive behavior. One widely circulated fabrication had Fonda destroying the only existing negative of Stagecoach (1939) because she despised John Wayne.
30Considered for the one of the two female leads in Fahrenheit 451 (1966) before François Truffaut decided Julie Christie would play both parts.
31Turned down the part of Joanna Kramer in Kramer vs. Kramer (1979).

34Refused Robert Redford's offer to co-star with him in Havana (1990).
35Turned down Isabelle Huppert's role in Heaven's Gate (1980).

37Turned down a role in The Stepford Wives (1975).
38Turned down Rosemary's Baby (1968).
39Turned down the role of Judy in Husbands and Wives (1992) because she disagreed with Woody Allen on the aesthetics of the character. The part went to Mia Farrow.
40Turned down An Unmarried Woman (1978).
41Turned down a role in Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969).
42Was Columbia's choice to star in Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965), but director Otto Preminger insisted on casting Carol Lynley.
43Turned down the Glenn Close role in Jagged Edge (1985).
44Tested for the part of Lucy in Parrish (1961).
45John Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas described in his autobiography of a midsized orgy he said occurred among himself, then-wife Michelle Phillips, a well-known movie director and his extremely famous movie star wife, and another single male movie star at a house in Malibu. It is commonly believed the unnamed three he was referring to were Roger Vadim, Fonda and Warren Beatty.
46Tom Hayden was reportedly worth only $50,000 when he married Fonda in 1973. Hayden received an estimated $30 million under California's joint property law in the couple's 1990 divorce settlement.
47Was romantically involved with producers José Antonio Sáinz de Vicuña and Sandy Whitelaw as well as actors Warren Beatty, James Franciscus and William Wellman Jr. during her bachelorette days; political activist Fred Gardner and actor Donald Sutherland while separated from first husband Roger Vadim; soccer player Lorenzo Caccialanza while separated from second husband Tom Hayden; and retired businessman Lynden Gillis in between her divorce from Ted Turner and her longtime relationship with Richard Perry. Over the span of her lengthy career, Jane also has been rumored to be romantically linked to numerous men including co-stars Alain Delon and Kris Kristofferson, musician Mick Jagger, cinematographer Sven Nykvist, talk show host Geraldo Rivera, columnist Robert Scheer and Manson Family victim Jay Sebring, but most of these affairs are unconfirmed so far.
48At the start of her career she auditioned for the role of Deanie in Splendor in the Grass (1961). When director Elia Kazan asked her if she was ambitious she said no, reasoning to herself "Good girls aren't supposed to be ambitious." The part went to Natalie Wood, and Fonda says she believes Kazan would've cast her instead if she had answered yes.
49Revealed on her website that she bathed in the ashes of her golden retriever Roxy when she mistook the contents of an urn for bath salts, and didn't realize what they were until she saw a bone in the water.
50Any Wednesday (1966) is her least favorite of her own films.
51Was offered Susan Sarandon's role in Elizabethtown (2005) when she hired a new agent in the mid-'00s to find a comeback project.
52Stopped dyeing her hair blonde when she became an activist in 1969.
53Named for Henry VIII's third wife Jane Seymour whom her mother Frances claimed to be a descendant.
54Turned down Meryl Streep's role in The Manchurian Candidate (2004) because she didn't want her Hollywood comeback to be as a villainess.
55Was Universal's choice for the role of Rusty Dennis in Mask (1985), but director Peter Bogdanovich and screenwriter Anna Hamilton Phelan wanted Cher to play Rusty. Ultimately, the studio gave in and cast Cher instead of Fonda.
56Claims that when she is out of makeup she can easily go to public places without being recognized.
57Auditioned for the part of Evelyn in Spanglish (2004) but lost out to Anne Bancroft, who had to pull out of the film when she was diagnosed with cancer and was then replaced by Cloris Leachman.
58Turned down the role of the A.D.A. Kathryn Murphy in The Accused (1988), which went to Kelly McGillis.
59Was considered for the role of "Betsy" in Taxi Driver (1976), but Cybill Shepherd was cast.
60Lived for 20 years of her life in Atlanta, Ga. (1991-2011).
61Her role in The China Syndrome (1979) was originally written as a male role, to be played by Richard Dreyfuss. After Dreyfuss quit, the role was rewritten as female with Fonda in mind.
62In a relationship with veteran record producer Richard Perry since 2009, the couple live together in Los Angeles.
63Is one of 22 Oscar-winning actresses to have been born in the state of New York. The others are Alice Brady, Teresa Wright, Anne Revere, Celeste Holm, Claire Trevor, Judy Holliday, Shirley Booth, Susan Hayward, Patty Duke, Anne Bancroft, Barbra Streisand, Lee Grant, Beatrice Straight, Whoopi Goldberg, Mercedes Ruehl, Marisa Tomei, Mira Sorvino, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Connelly, Melissa Leo and Anne Hathaway.
64Was the 71st actress to receive an Academy Award; she won the Best Actress Oscar for Klute (1971) at The 44th Annual Academy Awards (1972) on April 10, 1972.
65Was considered for the role of Beth Jarrett in Ordinary People (1980), which went to Mary Tyler Moore.
66The movie Swing Shift (1984) was originally written as a vehicle for Ms. Fonda. When her agent turned the movie down and Goldie Hawn replaced her, the project was rewritten as a partial comedy.
67In the mid-'80s, while developing the screenplay for the movie that eventually became Contact (1997), authors Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan envisioned Fonda in the role of Dr. Ellie Arroway.
68Louis Malle originally planned to direct Pretty Baby (1978), a film about photographer E.J. Bellocq, with Fonda and Jodie Foster to play the roles of Hattie and Violet, respectively. In the end, both actresses were unavailable due to scheduling conflicts, so Susan Sarandon and Brooke Shields were cast in the roles.

81Jane Fonda was the first pick for the role of Evelyn Mulwray in Chinatown (1974). She was wanted by the film's producer Robert Evans, who was also at the time chief of production at Paramount Pictures, and by Paramount owner Charlie Bluhdorn, but director Roman Polanski was insistent on Faye Dunaway from the get-go and never offered her the part.
82Grandchildren: Malcolm (b. 1999) and Viva (b. 2002).

90Turned down the role of Lara Antipova in Doctor Zhivago (1965) because it was to be filmed primarily in Spain for nine months. She didn't want to be away from home for that long. Weeks later she changed her mind and informed her agent she wanted to do it. By then Julie Christie had been signed to play Lara. Fonda said on Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show (2003) in December 2014 that of all the movies she's turned down, Doctor Zhivago is the one she regrets the most.
91She was a close friend of Gregory Peck (who played her father in Old Gringo (1989)) and he frequently attended political rallies with her.
92Danced ballet until she broke her foot in her 40s.
93Considers They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969) as a turning point in her career.

99Visited Sweden in September 2006 to support political party FI (Feministic Initiative) in the national election. FI focuses on issues that will benefit women and is led by the previous leader of Sweden's communist party. Coincidentally, "fi" is also the Swedish military abbreviation for "enemy".
100A 1972 visit to Hanoi during the Vietnam war where Fonda campaigned in favor of the communist regime and the subsequent release of several photographs of her atop a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun used against American air crews earned her the nickname "Hanoi Jane." As a result of her visit to Hanoi and the accompanying photographs, many Americans continue to regard Fonda with general resentment and hostility to this day.
101She and her father Henry Fonda are the only father-daughter couple to receive Oscars for leading roles.
102She and Tom Hayden gave their son Troy Garity his paternal grandmother's last name for the sake of anonymity
103Jane was mentioned on Sir Mix A Lot's 1992 hit single, "Baby Got Back".

105In her modeling days after college, she was twice on the cover of Vogue magazine.
106Was listed as a potential nominee on the 2006 Razzie Award nominating ballot. She was listed as a suggestion in the Worst Actress category for her performance in the film Monster-in-Law (2005). She failed to receive a nomination, however. (Had she gotten the nomination, it would have been her first Razzie nomination in 16 years. She was previously nominated for Worst Actress at the 1990 Razzie Awards for her performance in the film Old Gringo (1989).)
107Passed on the title role in Norma Rae (1979), which won a Best Actress Oscar for its eventual star Sally Field.
108Fluent in French.
109Stepdaughter of Shirlee Fonda
110Her ancestry includes Dutch, English, Scottish, as well as more distant French, Italian, and Norwegian.
111She and The China Syndrome (1979) co-stars Jack Lemmon and Michael Douglas have all won Oscars for Leading Roles. Fonda won for Klute (1971), Lemmon won for Save the Tiger (1973), and Douglas won for Wall Street (1987).
112She and her father were the first father-daughter pair to be Oscar-nominated the same year (1982).
113Of the Oscar-winning father-daughter pairs, she and her father are one of two pairs (the other is Hayley Mills/John Mills) where the daughter won an Academy award before the father did. Hayley Mills' Oscar was an honorary award for Pollyanna (1960), "...[T]he most outstanding juvenile performance during 1960". Juveniles were not allowed to compete for Oscars until the late 1960s, when the juvenile award was abandoned.
1141982: Accepted the Oscar for "Best Actor in a Leading Role" on behalf of her father Henry Fonda, who wasn't present at the awards ceremony.

121Her out-of-retirement movie, Monster-in-Law (2005) came out the same time as her autobiography, "My Life So Far" and the same time her workouts are re-released to DVD format in stores.
122The suicide of her socialite mother Frances Seymour Brokaw was kept from her as a teenager, and she was told that she'd died of heart failure. Household newspaper and magazine subscriptions were canceled, and the staff and student body of Fonda's high school were instructed not to discuss the incident. Fonda learned the truth months later while leafing through a movie magazine in art class.
123Shortly after her divorce from Ted Turner, she announced she had become a born-again Christian. Speculations are that this may have played a part in their separation, since Ted Turner has expressed highly critical opinions on religion in general.
124Born at 9:14 AM EST
125Ex-sister-in-law of Susan Brewer.
126Jane now openly admits that she suffered from bulimia from ages 13 to 37. While modeling, she said she lived on cigarettes, coffee, speed, and strawberry yogurt.

She spent ten hours in a cell at the Cuyahoga County Jail and was released on $6,000 personal bond. A federal drug smuggling charge was dropped once the substances were identified as vitamins and prescribed amounts of Dexedrine, Valium & Compazine. Due to lack of evidence, a federal assault charge pressed by Matuszek was dropped as well. Pieper filed a $100,000 personal injury lawsuit against her in civil court which was eventually dismissed at his attorney's request.
131She was, and still is, an exercise maven.

138Ranked #83 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. [October 1997]
139Is the subject of an erroneous urban legend. When Vassar was a women's college, the story goes, Jane Fonda refused to wear the elegant white gloves and pearls that were the attire for the daily Tea in the Rose Parlor. When confronted, Fonda returned to the parlor wearing the gloves and the pearls, and nothing else.

#Quote
1It's easy to say that awards are silly, but they're very good reassurance for the ego.
2It's much more important to be interested than to be interesting.
3As long as someone can make a buck off me, they're gonna do it. And as long as I can go into Hollywood and make a movie and make a lot of money which I can use to support the struggles I'm involved with, I will.
4Sometimes all I can do when I walk down the street, and this matters especially in New York, is look people in the eye. Especially homeless people and prostitutes. I mean, you don't see streetwalkers so much here, but I've been in cities where you run into streetwalkers. Looking them in the eye and saying "hello" I know makes a difference to that woman's life.
5[on the infamous photo of her posing with a Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun] The biggest lapse of judgment in my life. I don't regret going to North Vietnam. I'm glad I went. I'm glad I did everything I did, except that.
6I think marriage is going to go out, become obsolete. I don't think it's natural for two people to swear to be together for the rest of their lives.
7People think actresses find public speaking easy, and it's not easy at all; we're used to hiding behind masks.
8I never was a hippie! I went to India because so many friends like Mia Farrow and The Beatles were going there to discover truth. And so I went and trekked through India by myself, but instead of discovering truth, I wanted to join the Peace Corps.
9The only time I ever saw my dad cry was when Roosevelt died.
10[her reaction to cable channel QVC axing her scheduled appearance for July 16, 2011 to promote her self-help book "Prime Time" at the behest of angry phone callers threatening to boycott the show if she were allowed to appear] I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well-funded and organized political extremist groups and that they did it without talking to me first. I have never shied away from talking about this as I have nothing to hide. I could have pointed out that threats of boycotts are nothing new for me and have never prevented me from having bestselling books and exercise DVDs, films, and a Broadway play. Most people don't buy into the far right lies. Many people have reached out to express how excited they were about my going onto QVC and hearing about my book. Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT! I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us. I do not understand what the far right stands to gain by continuing with these myths. In this case, they denied a lot of people the chance to hear about a book that can help make life better, easier and more fulfilling. I am deeply grateful for all of the support I have been getting since this happened, including from my Vietnam Veterans friends.
11I grew up with a deep belief that wherever our troops fought, they were on the side of the angels.
12When I was young I never thought I was going to make it past thirty. I thought I was going to die of alcoholism and loneliness and you know that hasn't been the case... Don't give up no matter how hard it is. Try to make the best of who you are.
13I'll smoke pot every now and then. I cannot see a movie on pot. The number of movies I've seen thinking, This is probably the best I have ever seen, and then I'll see it again sober and think, What was I thinking?
14I'm vain about loose flesh. And so I'm careful that what I wear will show off my best parts.
15I find that arduous physical labor can jump-start my thought process.
16I was always a courageous woman, capable of confronting governments, but not men. I was a chameleon, the woman men wanted me to be.
17[after having her breast implants removed] My kids are so relieved. They tell me I look normal again.
18[reflecting on her career slump in the mid-1970s] I can't say I was blacklisted, but I was greylisted. Nixon used the same tactics on me he used on people he didn't like in the '50s. He had conservative state legislators introduce measures that would condemn or ban my films or prohibit me from even entering the state. Conservative theater owners went along, and studio executives who might have shared my politics said, 'What can we do? Why take a chance?'.
19To overcome bulimia, I had to teach myself to eat all over again, like a child.
20As an actor you spend all your life trying to do something they put people in asylums for.
21The kind of parts that I think are the most exciting to play and are the most viable in terms of communication are characters that are complex; that is, characters that are full of contradictions that can be shown, that are in motion, that are trying to deal with problems that are real to people.
22Roger Vadim and I were too different to last. I don't mean nationality, I mean attitude. I think opposites only attract for a brief, intense period.
23If you're ever in a situation where you're not getting served or you can't get what you need, just cry.
24I feel like my honesty gives people the freedom to talk about things they wouldn't otherwise.
25All my life I had believed that unless I was perfect I would not be loved.
26The people who did you wrong or who didn't quite know how to show up, you forgive them. And forgiving them allows you to forgive yourself too.
27It's never too late - never too late to start over, never too late to be happy.
28I have used acupuncture many times in the past - to reduce fever, heal broken bones, relieve pain... it really works if the doctor is skilled. I have felt I needed to have my energy system balanced.
29Aging is not what we used to think it was, where you peak at middle age. It's ascending a staircase into growth, wisdom, well-being and happiness.
30I took Klute (1971) because, in it, I expose a great deal of the oppression of women in this country - the system which makes women sell themselves for possessions.
31[on third husband Ted Turner] For his own reasons, Ted moves laterally through life, very fast. Across his millions of acres. I wanted to go vertically. I knew if I stayed with him I'd be safe, I wouldn't need to work, and it would be interesting. But I would never be a whole person, and I wanted to be a whole person.
32I try to live my third act in such a way that I won't have regrets. You never get there entirely, but you can spend your life working at it.
33I viewed my mother as a snob. Well she was a snob. Had she lived long enough I probably wouldn't have cared for her very much, frankly. So the way I protected myself from that is, 'Okay, I don't need you'. But of course I blamed myself when she killed herself.
34[on her book 'Prime Time'] I actually never lead. There's always something more first, and then I'm the cheerleader. There are many, many books about aging. Mine just covers everything that I wanted to know.
35Dating's not something I spend a lot of time thinking about. Nor do I miss it, frankly. I feel 71 years old. I do. I'm really aware of the miles that have been logged and of the life that has gone under the bridge and how it has made me grow. I'm someone who has always tried to think about what it has all meant. I'm a quester. So I feel my age. I feel grown up.
36Emotionality is really easy for me. My father always said that Fondas can cry at a good steak.
37It's always great to rehearse on a plane because people think you're mad.
38On returning to the stage in 2009: I am not the same person I was. I really am a different person. And I feel now that I could really be better than I have ever been in acting. It felt like something I had left prematurely. I didn't complete it, and I wanted to see if I could find joy in it again. It's been 45, 46 years since I was last on Broadway, and it feels like it too, in the sense of my personal trajectory. I feel that in terms of my personal development there has been at least half a century in there. Thank God.
39[Monster-in-Law (2005)] was the single smartest move I ever made
40[Why she quit acting for 15 years] When I was really, really unhappy with myself and my life, which happened in the second half of my marriage to [Tom Hayden], I just stopped. Acting became too painful. I just couldn't. All the joy leached out of it.
41Oh Henry Fonda's love of the Theater: I'm becoming obsessed with his presence in my head, because my dad adored theater. He didn't talk much, but he would talk about how he loved the immediacy of a live audience. I was never comfortable enough in my own skin 45 years ago to be able to understand it. I just wanted to escape. And now it's like, 'Oh Dad, I wish you were here and alive, so I could say to you: "I get it! I'm finally able to experience what you were talking about."
42When I left the West Coast I was a liberal. When I landed in New York I was a revolutionary.
43I wanted to do a tour like I did during the Vietnam War, a tour of the country. But then Cindy Sheehan filled in the gap, and she is better at this than I am. I carry too much baggage.
44Ted Turner needs someone to be there 100 percent of the time. He thinks that's love. It's not love. It's babysitting.
45It's hard to imagine a happy ending to the US-led war in Iraq. What's it going to mean for stability as a nation, for terrorism, for the economy I can't imagine. I think the entire world is going to be united against us.
46I'm a very brave person. I can go to North Vietnam, I can challenge my government, but I can't challenge the man I'm with if means I'm going to end up alone.
47When I start down a path that I know is the right path, I go with all of me.
48I would have given up acting in a minute. I didn't like how it set me apart from other people.
49[Accepting her father's Oscar for On Golden Pond (1981)]: "I'll bet when he heard it just now, he said 'Hey ain't I lucky?' As if luck had anything to do with it".
50"If you understood what Communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that one day we would become Communist." (speaking to students at the University of Michigan in 1970)
51I, a Socialist, think we should strive toward a Socialist society, all the way to Communism.
52It hurt so many soldiers. It galvanised such hostility. It was the most horrible thing I could possibly have done. It was just thoughtless. [expressing regret at her support for the Viet Cong]
53"Acting with Laurence Harvey is like acting by yourself - only worse" - Jane Fonda on her 1962 film Walk on the Wild Side (1962).
54I was terrified when I turned 30. I was pregnant and had the mumps and Faye Dunaway was just coming out in Bonnie and Clyde (1967). I thought, 'Oh my God, I'll never work again. I'm old!'
55Working in Hollywood does give one a certain expertise in the field of prostitution.
