Actress Jane Fonda’s career has spanned four decades and has had plenty of ups and downs. Fonda’s acting career exploded as she took the role of 60s sex symbol Barbarella, and she quickly became famous for her anti-war activism, her workout tapes, and her three marriages (including one to media mogul Ted Turner).
While looking back on her turbulent life, Fonda this week sat down with Oprah Winfrey on the show Oprah’s Next Chapter. In particular, Fonda addressed her 2010 breast cancer diagnosis, stating that she is not afraid of dying.
“A couple of years ago I got breast cancer, and that was a good test because I always said, ‘I’m not afraid of dying,'” said Fonda. “And I wasn’t.”
Fonda went on to discuss how women’s sex lives can improve with age, her black daughter, and how she looks back on her lifetime of accomplishments.
“I’m old, and I feel really young,” said Fonda.
