Jane Fonda has admitted she’s done with plastic surgery.

Like many celebrities, Jane Fonda has chosen to maintain her privacy when it comes to talking about cosmetic treatments and enhancements.

So much so that she once famously clashed with US news presenter Megyn Kelly when quizzed about the subject.

But now, the actor and activist has seemingly confirmed her decision to undergo cosmetic procedures in the past and says it is something she’s not going to be doing any more of in the future.

“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 told Elle Canada for their March issue.

“I have to work every day to be self-accepting; it doesn’t come easy to me,” the 82-year-old actor added.

Fonda went on to explain that she now tries to use social media to poke fun at herself and her insecurities.

“I try to make it very clear that it has been a long and continuing struggle for me,” she said.

“I post pictures of me looking haggard — and once with my tooth out!”

According to People, Fonda previously spoke about her previous cosmetic surgeries in her 2018 HBO documentary, ‘Jane Fonda in Five Acts.’

“I’m glad I look good for my age, but I’ve had plastic surgery,” she admitted in the film. “I’m not going to lie about that.”

“On one level, I hate the fact that I’ve had the need to alter myself physically to feel that I’m OK,” she continued.

“I wish I wasn’t like that. I love older faces. I love lived-in faces. I loved Vanessa Redgrave’s face.”

Fonda went on to add: “I wish I was braver. But I am what I am.”

The ‘Grace & Frankie’ actress has since been making headlines for her climate change activism.

As part of her commitment to saving the planet, Fonda has vowed to stop buying clothes, so the red coat she wears every Friday to the Fire Drill Friday protests is the last item of clothing she plans to purchase.

In her Elle interview the actress also gives a nod to her desire to work together, particularly with other women, to bring about change.

“What this time in human history calls for is collective action,” she tells the publication. “And women are the most receptive to the idea of collective action.

“Nothing good ever happened without mass movement—and we need a mass movement now to focus on climate.”
