We can always count on Jane Fonda for a refreshing Hollywood view of plastic surgery. “I got tired of looking tired when I wasn’t,” she famously said in her HBO documentary, Jane Fonda in Five Acts. But in a recent interview with Elle Canada, the 82-year-old actress says that chapter of her life is officially closed.
“I can’t pretend that I’m not vain, but there isn’t going to be any more plastic surgery—I’m not going to cut myself up anymore,” she stated. But it seems the choice was a difficult one for the Oscar-winner: “I have to work every day to be self-accepting; it doesn’t come easy to me.”

According to Elle, the road to self-acceptance hasn’t been the smoothest for the Grace and Frankie star. She’s struggled with bulimia since childhood, an issue she’s long been transparent with fans about. “I try to make it very clear that it has been a long and continuing struggle for me. I post pictures of me looking haggard—and once with my tooth out!” And transparent she is. Today, Fonda will be the first to point out what she’s gotten “done.”
“I’m glad I look good for my age, but I’ve had plastic surgery. I’m not going to lie about that,” she said in her documentary, airing to millions. “On one level, I hate the fact that I’ve had the need to alter myself physically to feel that I’m OK. I wish I wasn’t like that. I love older faces. I love lived-in faces. I loved Vanessa Redgrave’s face,” she continued. “I wish I was braver. But I am what I am.” And we love you for it, Jane.
