Jane Fonda isn’t bothered by being “closer to death.”
Fonda, 84, explained her view on aging during an appearance on “CBS Sunday Morning.” The star was promoting her Netflix series, “Grace and Frankie.”
“I’m super-conscious that I’m closer to death,” the “Youth” actress said. “And it doesn’t really bother me that much.”
“What bothers me is that my body is, you know basically not mine!” she continued. “My knees are not mine, my hips are not mine, my shoulder’s not mine. You’re looking at somebody who’s only me from here up.”
