Happy 80th birthday to Jane Fonda!

Two-time Oscar winner Jane Fonda turns 80 today.

I just loved her I Dream of Jeannie look at this year’s Emmy Awards.

The star of such classic films as Coming Home, Nine to Five, On Golden Pond, The China Syndrome, Julia, Klute and Barefoot in the Park is still going strong with the Netflix comedy hit Grace & Frankie and the recent Our Souls at Night film with Robert Redford.

Miss Fonda is a staunch LGBT ally and said in a 2014 interview that she was surprised at how much gay men related to her acclaimed 2004 autobiography My Life So Far.

‘When I wrote my memoir, which I assumed was mostly a woman’s story that would be appreciated by women, what really struck me is how many men – especially gay men – really responded to it,’ Fonda says in the September issue of Out Magazine.

Fonda has been married three times – to director Roger Vadim, politician Tom Hayden and CNN founder Ted Turner – and wrote that she changed herself considerably for each man.

She also had a father, actor Henry Fonda, who was emotionally distant and a mother who committed suicide when Jane was 12.

The actress says she and gay men share ‘that feeling of, “If I’m not perfect, if I’m not what people want me to be, no one will love me. I don’t fit in.”‘
