“I’m glad I look good for my age, but I’ve had plastic surgery. I’m not going to lie about that,” Fonda, 80, says, according to People.
Fonda said she went under the knife because she looked tired a lot of the time, even when she wasn’t.
“On one level, I hate the fact that I’ve had the need to alter myself physically to feel that I’m OK,” the actress, author and activist said. “I wish I wasn’t like that. I love older faces. I love lived-in faces. I loved Vanessa Redgrave’s face.”
She added: “I wish I was braver. But I am what I am.”
Fonda’s comments about plastic surgery echo what she’s said in the past.
“I did have plastic surgery. I’m not proud of the fact that I’ve had it. But I grew up so defined by my looks,” she told W Magazine in 2015. “I was taught to think that if I wanted to be loved, I had to be thin and pretty. That leads to a lot of trouble.”
In the new documentary, directed by Susan Lacy, Fonda also speaks openly about her mother’s suicide, her complicated relationship with her father, her stance against the Vietnam War, and her marriages to Roger Vadim, Tom Hayden and Ted Turner.
“None of my marriages were democratic because I had to be a certain way,” Fonda says in the trailer for the documentary. “I had to look a certain way.”
“Jane Fonda in Five Acts” premieres Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. on HBO.
