Jane Fonda, an award-winning American actress, has announced her resolve to quit plastic surgery.
The political activist and former fashion model disclosed this when speaking with Elle Canada, a Canadian-based magazine.
The 82-year-old movie star, who struggled with bulimia — an eating disorder — since her childhood until it got under control in her 40s, said she wants to be upright about the realities of her life.
Fonda also noted she has taken it upon herself to work everyday so she can be “self-accepting,” adding she hopes to be more open to her fans.
“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 said.
“I have to work every day to be self-accepting; it doesn’t come easy to me. 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!
“I knew that if I really told the truth, it would be universal. All these issues are universal among women: ‘I’m not good enough; I have to please, starting with Daddy; I’m not pretty enough; I’m not thin enough; I’m not smart enough.
“Showing up is something you have to learn — although there are certain emotional disabilities you pick up when you are young that you can’t entirely undo.
“I have psychic scars that I will never be able to give up. You learn to manage them. You learn to banish them to the corner and put a dunce cap on them and forbid them to come out.
“I grew up at a time when the thinking was that women were like cats, competing with each other, knocking each other down. But, in fact, there is no limit to what we can accomplish if we work together.”
When Fonda is not filming ‘Grace and Frankie’, the Hollywood star, who recently stunned at the Oscars, is busy fighting climate change.
