Jane Fonda, 84, Says "She's had a great life, she's ready to die"

Jane Fonda revealed she’s “not going to be around for much longer,” she explained why she feels 'ready to die'.

"For better or worse, celebrities bring attention to a subject matter. And I'm not gonna be around for much longer and we need to get celebrities involved in this issue so they can help keep it going," Fonda shared. "When you get to be my age, you better be aware of the amount of time that is behind you as opposed to in front of you. I mean, that's just realistic."

Discussing mortality as she approached her 85th birthday in December, she mused that she was ‘not going to be around for much longer’.

‘I’m not afraid of going. I’m ready. I’ve had a great life. Not that I want to go, but I’m aware that it’s going to be sooner rather than later,’ she told Entertainment Tonight.

The celebrated actress reflected on what she still hopes to accomplish in her life, after decades of incredible work, both onscreen and in the world of activism and philanthropy.

"[I want to] see my grandkids get old enough so I go out knowing they're gonna be OK. That would be important," she said. "But, you know, my work on the climate is gonna be something. I'll be doing that till I drop."

The two-time Oscar winner and activist has become just as known for her activism as she has her performances, famously protesting the Vietnam War as well as since then supporting environmental, feminist, LGBTQ+ and political causes.
