Today, December 21, celebrates her 83rd birthday of the great actress, writer and activist Jane Fonda. We decided to remember the brightest events in her life
Jane is named after King Henry's third wife. Jane Seymour was a distant relative of our birthday girl. The actress's mother committed suicide while in a psychiatric hospital, at that time the girl was only 12 years old. The father survived the death of his wife very easily, he soon married again to a young girl. The stepmother was only nine years older than Jane.
Many times in her interviews, the Foundation admitted that her father instilled in her a sense of inferiority. A man throughout childhood repeated to his daughter that no one would ever love her, for this you need to be perfect in all respects.
Jane studied ballet all her life, but by unfortunate coincidence, she broke her leg and was unable to continue her professional career. She had to develop for herself a set of exercises that helped to keep the body in a healthy physical shape. Jane later decided to videotape her gymnastics lesson to help women around the world keep fit through simple exercises. Over the year, the video cassette has sold over one million copies.
Fonda received her first award as an actress in 1962 for her leading role in the film A Walk in the Dissolute Quarter. The celebrity played the girl from the brothel so realistically and incomparably that she immediately became the first nominee for the Golden Globe of the newcomer. She easily took this award home.
Jane Fonda never hid the fact that she constantly resorted to the services of plastic surgeons. Not all operations were successful, but this did not frighten the actress, and she went under the knife again and again. Apparently, the instructions that her father gave her as a child did not pass by.
She also spent ten years of her life struggling with severe bulimia. The disease began to develop when the woman was only 40 years old, and only 50 Jane was able to defeat him.
Bulimia is not the only ailment that the celebrity has dealt with. In 2008, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In two years, the woman managed to defeat this disease.
The first nomination for "Oscar" came after filming in the film "The Horses Are Shot Down". Film critics agreed that Fonda is not just a talented actress, but also a beautiful woman, both in face and figure. After that, Jane realized what she was worth, the actress became very picky about her projects, rejecting one proposal after another. We could see her in such great films as Bonnie and Clyde and Rosemary's Baby, but the star ceded the lead role to other aspiring actresses.
