Jane Fonda, the esteemed Oscar-winning actress, and activist at 85, has confidently declared that she is ready to meet her maker. Her daring declaration was made during a recent interview with a British publication where Fonda divulged that she had already started thinking about her farewell celebration.
For more than five decades, the acclaimed actress has been an iconic presence in Hollywood who is known for her outspoken activism regarding climate change and political reform. Though she has achieved great success and built a highly esteemed legacy, Fonda remains at ease with the prospect of death.
“I’m 85 and I know that I’m lucky to be here. So, I’m not afraid of dying,” she said. “I’m not wishing it on myself, but when it comes, I’m ready for it.”
Fonda’s admission may be surprising to some, but it is not unexpected considering her age and activism. The actress has always been transparent about her views on mortality and the importance of grasping every opportunity for life fulfillment.
Jane Fonda has often shared her philosophy of “aging with grace,” wherein one should accept the physical and psychological modifications brought on by aging while finding purpose in life’s later stages.
“I think it’s important to be open to the fact that we’re not going to be here forever and to make the most of the time that we have,” she added.
With an unwavering passion for justice and conservation, Jane Fonda is determined to be a steady leader in the struggle against social injustice and environmental degradation. Throughout her career, she has actively participated in several demonstrations protesting various issues, including recently launching “Fire Drill Fridays,” a virtual platform that raises awareness about climate change.
As an actress and activist, Fonda has left a lasting impression on many. Her courage to confront her mortality with bravery only further amplifies her influence in society. In the words of the actress herself, “I’m still here, and I’m going to keep fighting until I’m not.”
