Yep you read it right!!! At 73, Jane Fonda Slipped back into her 80’s leotard for an appearance on the “Today Show.”
Honda and Kathy Lee were in for a treat when Fonda led them through exercises from her famous workout! Jane looked just as good in her black and red leotard as she did years ago.
1982, marked the second coming of Jane’s career with this workout video. It became the best selling workout video of all time. It has sold an estimated 17 million copies. Following this video she then went on to release 23 more exercise videos, along with 5 books and 13 audio tapes!
Fonda retired from the fitness industry in 1995 only to return recently with a new DVD for the older generation.
The now actress, has been in New York promoting her new book,” Prime Time: Love, Health, Sex, Fitness, Friendship, Spirit — Making the Most of all of Your Life.
Jane beleives that fitness is the key to aging.
What she learned about the role exercise plays in aging while researching her new project ‘just blew me away.’
‘It’s important to exercise when you’re younger,’ she said. ‘But it’s like the number one ingredient for successful aging. It makes a difference for all aspects of your life and your body.
‘I’m happier now than I was before,” Fonda said. “That’s not exactly what I expected at 73.’
She also spoke about her decision to have plastic surgery.
The Barbarella star told Lauer she didn’t feel pressure to maintain a certain look.
‘I just decided I wanted to buy myself some time and look more like how I feel,’ said Fonda, who had work on her chin, neck and under the eyes.
‘Afterwards I thought, ‘Oh my God, it’s me,’’ she continued, ‘I feel so great and so rested and I look so different and I just decided — and I’m not proud of it — I decided I wanted to look more like how I feel (source)’
