Jane Fonda just turned 83 on December 21, and the actress and activist has had made a major transformation since her career started in the 1960s.


Actress and activist Jane Fonda, who turned 83 this December, has made an incredible transformation from her first film, “Tall Story” in the 60s, to her most recent role on “Grace and Frankie."

In the 60s, Fonda looked stunning with reddish-brown hair worn in curls. During this time, she was a part of various films, including the western, “Cat Ballou.” Her best-known film of the time was the ultra risqué sci-fi “Barbarella.”


Throughout the years, Fonda has usually worn her hair in a blonde shade. In the 70s, she sported her hair in long blonde locks, while in the 80s, her hair was in voluminous curls for her workout videos.

For her role as Grace in the comedy series “Grace and Frankie,” she wears her hair cropped and blonde. The show centers around the two women bonding over the fact that their husbands have fallen in love with each other. A great quote from the show is,

“One you see the real me, you are gonna run for the hills”

Recently, she rocked her hair in its natural gray color at the 2020 Academy Awards as well as in a photo shoot for Elle magazine.

The star looked stunning and age-defying in a black and gray suit, which featured a two-tone blazer and a black polo neck. Her silver hair was styled in a voluminous cropped do.

Fonda had been involved in climate change protests called the “Fire Drill Fridays” which saw her leading a coalition on the step of the Capitol in Washington D.C.


Fonda recently appeared on a virtual call on “The Ellen Degeneres Show,” where guest host Tiffany Haddish asked her about whether she was having sex because she was looking so good.

She responded that she was too busy and did not need it anymore as she had had so much of it already in her life. The actress said to Haddish,

"I don't have time. I'm old and I've had so much of it, I don't need it right now because I'm too busy!"


When the 83-year-old is not working on her comedy series or looking absolutely glamorous on a red carpet, she spends her time making the world a better place.

The action was to pressure the senate and congress to take climate change issues seriously by taking action and changing the current situation.

Due to the pandemic, the “Fire Drill Fridays” has become virtual where people can message a number to receive information on what they can do to help with climate change.
