Actresses, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin of "Grace and Frankie" attended a red carpet event promoting their hit series together, and they coordinated with their outfits.


Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, brought their on-screen "BFF" status to live by attending together, the promotional "Grace and Frankie Emmy For Your Consideration" event in Los Angeles, over the weekend.


The two walked the red carpet of the event held to promote their hit "Netflix" show side-by-side, and they coordinated with their outfits, but in different colors.

Fonda wore an all-white outfit with a brown belt and grey shoes. She accessorized with gold jewelry — earrings, ring, bracelets, and necklace. Tomlin wore an all-black ensemble, and the end of the sleeves, collar, and edges of her dress shirt had an animal print design.

Like her friend and co-star, she also had on grey shoes but opted for a think black necklace instead of gold accessories.

Fonda's fan page on Instagram — JFondaUpdates — shared photos of the two women posing with their co-stars — Martin Sheen, Howard Morris, and Sam Westerson at the event.


Riley Jackson — who plays the younger version of Tomlin's character — also attended the event. She shared a picture on her Instagram page posing with the actress who plays "Grace" with the caption "Love you @JaneFonda."

"Grace and Frankie" is a story about two women who connected and formed a strong bond after they discovered the men they were married to were gay and in love with each other.


The show is in its fifth season, and soon after it premiered in January, it got picked by the network for the sixth season. Fonda and Tomlin also appeared on "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday. The live comedy show featured Pete Davidson performing a rap in honor of the hit show.

The comedian revealed that he is a fan of the two women and watches their show every day. In the end, the leading ladies appeared wearing a T-shirt with the words "I Heart Pete."

Davidson is not the only fan of the actresses. Singer/actress, Jennifer Lopez, is a lifetime admirer of Fonda. The two worked together on the movie "Monster-in-Law."


During a throwback episode on her YouTube channel last Thursday, Lopez described her time on set with the older woman as the highlight of her career, and credits her onscreen mother-in-law as someone with a "Powerful presence."

She also called Fonda a "Gangster bitch" whom she loves, adding that the "Stanley and Iris" star came out of retirement to star in the 2005 movie because of her. "Grace and Frankie" returns with a new season in 2020; fans can catch up on previous episodes on "Netflix."
