Jane Fonda Quote: We need women friends, women who challenge us. I have chosen not to have any more plastic surgery. Sally Field and I have kind of made a pact about that. It's really hard, especially if you're a public person. But I want to give a face to aging.

Jane Fonda Saying: I am still baffled by those who feel that criticizing America is unpatriotic, a view increasingly being adopted in the United States since 9/11 as an excuse to render suspect what has always been an American right.

Sayings about Jane Fonda: What's totally terrifying is that, unlike a musician who has a musical instrument, or a painter that's got a canvas and a brush, acting is us. Our energy, our soul, our spirits. And it's so hard because it's so vul nerable. You're exposing everything.

Saying about Jane Fonda: Aging is a staircase - the upward ascension of the human spirit, bringing us into wisdom, wholeness and authenticity.

There's only one exception to this universal law, and that is the human spirit, which can continue to evolve upwards.

Jane Fonda Quotes: Think of anger as a muscle. The way you express anger isn't the way that I do, or you.

And you discover all these new muscles when you enter a new character - that's what a director does for you.
