Wishing a happy 81st birthday to Jane Fonda!

Jane Fonda, who turns 81 today, was asked recently when the best time of her remarkable life was.

Was it when she first became a movie star in the 1960s and was in such films as Barefoot in the Park, Cat Ballou and Barbarella? Or the 1970s when she won Oscars for Klute and Coming Home and starred in Julia and The China Syndrome?

Then there’s the 1980s when she teamed with Dolly and Lily and starred in 9 to 5, won an Emmy for The Dollmaker, produced and co-starred in On Golden Pond and launched her hugely successful workout business.

Or was it after her 10 year marriage to Ted Turner ended and she returned to films in 2005′s Monster-In-Law?

In the past decade, Jane has worked constantly including on Broadway in 33 Variations (Tony nomination), and on television in The Newsroom (two Emmy nominations.

It turns out that right now is the best time she says – and you believe her!

She’s still making movies (Youth, Our Souls at Night, Georgia Rule, Fathers and Daughters, This is Where I Leave You and her Netflix series, Grace and Frankie with Lily Tomlin, is now in its fifth season and the two old friends are still having a ball working together.

Jene recently starred in Book Club and is the subject of the critically acclaimed HBO documentary, Jane Fonda in Five Acts.

It was just announced this week that Jane will be presented with the 2019 Stanley Kramer Award on January 19 during the 30th annual PGA Awards at the Beverly Hilton.

The Kramer Award honors a production, producer or other individuals whose achievement or contribution illuminates and raises public awareness of important social issues. Jane is being recognized for her lifetime activism and philanthropic work.

“Jane Fonda has built an extraordinary legacy as an outspoken advocate for the vulnerable in our society,” said PGA presidents Gail Berman and Lucy Fisher. “Throughout her remarkable life, she has made and continues to make a significant impact on the lives of people through her work both on and off the screen. Fonda exemplifies the spirit of Stanley Kramer, and we are proud to honor her.”
