Jane Fonda believes Jennifer Lopez has revived her career after spending 15 years without a role.
The 84-year-old entered as she spoke about her decades-long career as an actress, activist and fitness guru.
Despite her iconic status, Jane said it was her role alongside J-Law, 53, in the 2005 film Monsters in Law that got her career back on track. He said it was because he had fulfilled his duties.
Despite being ridiculed by critics, Jane surprisingly viewed the film as “the only smart thing” she had done in her working career.
Prior to that, she hadn’t appeared in a movie since 1990 when she played the title character in ‘Stanley and Iris’ alongside Robert De Niro.
The two-time Academy Award winner told the Daily Mirror: more.
“With Jennifer Lopez, it was a great comeback for me. I was almost 65 when I stumbled upon this script.
“It was the only smart career I ever had. I thought, ‘People are going to come to the movies to see J.Lo, but they’re going to rediscover Fonda,’ and that happened.
After landing roles with Jennifer, Jane took on roles such as Nancy Reagan in ‘The Butler’ and Grace Hanson in Netflix’s ‘Grace and Frankie’.
Jane also says she feels younger at 84 than she did when she was in her 20s.
She admitted that she felt “lost” in her youth and was “very unhappy, old and didn’t feel like she could live long”.
However, she said she regretted having a facelift in her battle to stay young.
Jane admitted she was “not proud” of the surgery and never wanted to do it again, telling Vogue: I am not proud of the fact that I had it.
“Now if I do it again, I don’t know if I had to do it again. But I did it.”
“I admit it, and I just say, okay, you can get addicted. I have.”
