Early Life

On December 21, 1937, Jane Seymour Fonda was born in New York City. Her mother, Frances Ford Brokaw, was a Canadian-born socialite, and her father, Henry Fonda, was a well-known American actor. While undergoing therapy at Craig House Psychiatric Hospital, her mother took her own life. Fonda attended the Emma Willard School and Vassar College in New York, as well as Greenwich Academy in Connecticut, for her schooling.


Fonda started out in show business as a model, making two appearances on the cover of Vogue Magazine. After performing with her father in a charity production of the play “The Country Girl,” she decided to focus on acting.

Acting Career

Fonda starred in multiple films during the early years of her career in the 1960s, averaging about two each year. Among these are the films “Barbarella” (1968), “The Chase” (1966), “Cat Ballou” (1965), “Walk on the Wild Side” (1962), and “Tall Story” (1960). Specifically, “Cat Ballou” is frequently cited as her breakthrough performance that catapulted her into significant celebrity. The movie was highly successful at the box office that year and garnered five Oscar nominations. Moreover, “Barbarella” is widely recognized as the movie that solidified Fonda’s reputation as a sex icon.

In terms of critical praise, Fonda’s acting career peaked during the 1970s. She won her first Academy Award for Best Actress for the murder mystery “Klute” (1971); she also won a BAFTA Award for Best Actress for “Tout Va Bien” (1972); “A Doll’s House” (1973); “Fun With Dick and Jane” (1977); “Julia” (1977); “Coming Home” (1978); and “The China Syndrome” (1979).

Fonda co-starred in the phenomenally popular “9 to 5,” the second highest-grossing movie of 1980, with Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton. Her appearance in the 1981 film “On Golden Pond” with her late father, Henry Fonda, fulfilled a lifelong goal of hers. Their relationship had been severely strained for a long time, but the experience proved to be therapeutic for both of them. Along with becoming the first father-daughter team to receive an Oscar nomination for the same picture, Jane was also honored with Henry’s first-ever Best Actor win. Henry was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. During the 1980s, Fonda starred in a number of noteworthy movies, including “The Morning After” (1986) and “The Dollmaker” (1984).

In 1991, Fonda declared her retirement from acting; her final picture for 15 years was the drama “Stanley & Iris” (1990). In 2005, she made a comeback to acting in the movie “Monster-in-Law,” starring alongside Jennifer Lopez. She then starred in the drama “Georgia Rule” (2007) with Lindsay Lohan and Felicity Huffman. Additionally, Fonda made her Broadway debut in a production of Moisés Kaufman’s “33 Variations” in 2009—her first performance since 1963. In addition to appearing in movies like “Peace, Love and Misunderstanding” (2011), “The Butler” (2013), “Better Living Through Chemistry” (2014), and “This is Where I Leave You” (2014), she shot the drama “All Together” (2011) completely in French. She has made appearances in the Netflix programs “Grace and Frankie,” “The Simpsons,” and “The Newsroom.” In more recent times, Fonda has voiced characters in the animated films “Luck” (2022) and “Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken” (2023), as well as starred in “Moving On” (2022), “80 for Brady” (2023), and “Book Club: The Next Chapter” (2023).

Fitness Ventures

Fonda was unable to attend her usual ballet classes following a foot injury she sustained while filming “The China Syndrome”. In order to stay in shape, she started doing aerobics and worked out with Leni Cazden as her instructor. Renamed the “Jane Fonda Workout,” “The Leni Workout” contributed to the fitness craze of the 1980s. Following the publication of her book “Jane Fonda’s Workout Book” in 1981, her training video “Jane Fonda’s Workout” became an international sensation, selling over a million copies. She published 13 audio programs, 5 exercise manuals, and 23 training videos overall till 1995. In 2010, she made a comeback to fitness with two brand-new DVD videos geared toward an older demographic.

Political Activism

Perhaps the most well-known (and infamous) aspects of Fonda’s life are her contentious opposition to the Vietnam War in the 1960s and her early 1970s support of the Black Panthers, a black revolutionary socialist group. When Fonda traveled to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, in 1972, she was infamously pictured sitting atop an anti-aircraft battery, shocking Americans and garnering her the derisive moniker “Hanoi Jane.” She does not regret traveling to North Vietnam, but she has since apologized for some of her remarks and deeds.

Fonda established the Jane Fonda Climate PAC in March 2022 in an effort to unseat legislators who back the fossil fuel sector.

Personal Life

Jane Fonda has three marriages under her belt, all of which have ended in divorce. Her first marriage, which lasted from 1965 until 1973, was to French film director Roger Vadim. Vanessa Vadim is the only daughter they have together. Just three days after concluding her divorce from Vadim, in January 1973, Fonda wed campaigner Tom Hayden. Troy O’Donovan Garity, their son, was their only child together. Mary Luana Williams, a teenager, was informally adopted by them; her parents were Black Panthers. In 1990, Fonda and Hayden got divorced. Ted Turner, the inventor of CNN, was the subject of her third marriage, which lasted from 1991 to 2001. She also had a long-term romance from 2009 until 2017 with record producer Richard Perry.

Fonda was later diagnosed with osteoporosis and breast cancer. In November 2010, she had a successful lumpectomy, and in April 2019, a malignant tumor from her lower lip was removed. She declared in September of 2022 that she had begun chemotherapy after receiving a non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosis. Fonda declared the illness to be in remission in December 2022.

Ted Turner Divorce Settlement

It is reported that Ted gave Jane more than $100 million in liquid assets (cash and shares), including stock in his business just before it went public at the height of the dotcom boom. She also got a number of priceless real estate holdings, including a 2,500-acre ranch. Furthermore, a single 2,500-acre ranch is but a small dot in Ted Turner’s portfolio, despite the fact that it could seem significant. With about two million acres of personal and ranch land as of this writing, Ted is the second-largest landowner in the US. He has enough land that he could mount a horse and travel from Canada to Mexico without ever leaving his own territory.

Real Estate

Jane Fonda is the owner of numerous magnificent homes and estates all around the world. She owns a loft in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as Forked Lightening Ranch, a 2,000+ acre property close to Pecos, New Mexico. The 4,700-square-foot main house of Fonda’s New Mexico ranch has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Large windows, concrete flooring, high ceilings, and the main living room are all accessible from Fonda’s entry hall. There are tall bookcases and a fireplace in the living space. The kitchen features twin ovens, stainless steel and white cabinetry, and granite countertops. A curved staircase leads to an upper landing with a circular skylight, a dressing room, and the master bedroom’s fireplace with glass surround.

Jane put up a $13 million listing for a Beverly Hills house in January of 2018, and she eventually accepted $8.5 million. In 2012, she paid $7.3 million for the property.

She spent $5.45 million for a townhouse in Century City, Los Angeles, in 2017.
