Jane Fonda admitted she was “not proud” of having a facelift, and ruled out undergoing the knife again because she “didn’t want to look disfigured”.
The 84-year-old actress discussed her regrets about the surgery and warned about the dangers of her plastic surgery addiction in a new interview with Vogue published Tuesday.
The Hollywood legend has openly admitted that she previously underwent a facelift, but did not repeat the procedure again.
She said: ‘I had plastic surgery and stopped because I didn’t want to look disfigured. I’m not proud of the fact that I have one.

Now, I don’t know if I should have done this more if I was going to do it. But I did it. Admit it, and then just say, well, you can get addicted. Don’t keep doing that. A lot of women, I don’t know, are addicted to it.
The screen star added that she doesn’t spend a lot of money on expensive face creams, and instead insists that laughter is good for the skin.
She said, “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 hydrated, 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.
The Grace and Frankie star touched on how aging doesn’t have to be scary, and that she wanted to spread awareness that there are ways to age in positive, healthy ways.

I want young people to stop being afraid of getting old. What matters isn’t age, isn’t that chronological number. What matters is your health.
“I’m about 85, but I don’t look that old,” she explained. “So getting young people to stop being afraid of getting old, and helping people realize that just because you’re at a certain age doesn’t mean you have to give up on life…”
The Oscar-winning talent explained how grateful she is to still be healthy for her age.
“I mean, every day when I get out of the car, I thank the gods that I have strong thighs, and that I have worked to maintain strong thighs,” she said.
The Book Club actress was featured in the latest H&M Move campaign, prompting Jen to sit down with Vogue to discuss the new collaboration. The Action Wear item set is scheduled to be available on August 4.

Jane has thought about aging before, and in an interview with Glamor earlier in May, she made it clear that she didn’t want to regret that she kept getting older.
“One of the things I knew for sure was that I didn’t want to get to the end with so much regret, so the way I lived to the end was what would have determined whether or not I had regrets,” the star stated to the publication.
It completely changed the way I thought about myself and how I wanted to live the last third of my life. And I realized the importance of being intentional about the way we go through life.
The talented actress continues to be active and exercises, from simple walks in nature to a fitness routine.
When you get older, you realize that staying healthy is fun and crucial because age is not so much a chronology.

“You can be very old at 84, which is my age, but you can also be very young,” she said.
Jane began acting on Broadway, beginning her Hollywood career in the 1960s, starring in successful films such as Sunday In New York (1963) and Barbarella (1968).
She won two Academy Awards for Best Actress in the 1970s, and received several nominations and other awards in the following years.
Aside from his passion for being on the big screen, the star has been in love with dancing and fitness for years.
Jane released her first workout video in 1982, which became an HS bestseller in the 20th century.
