When Jane Fonda left her third husband, Ted Turner, he told her he was surprised by the breakup because people over age 60 aren't supposed to change — a notion Jane has never understood.
“I think about that all the time,” the 77-year-old actress revealed in a recent interview. “He has hardly changed. And I feel like a different human being.”

Since her 2001 divorce, the iconic star has continued to expand her more than 50-year Hollywood career with new projects, including an upcoming Netflix series titled — 'Grace & Frankie' — that reunites her with her former 'Nine to Five' costar Lily Tomlin.

“You so often see women in our media competing with each other. I like that ['Grace and Frankie'] is two women befriending each other. That’s very good for people to see. I have a strong belief that older people have a greater sense of well being. Older women in particular, it’s like, 'What the hell do we have to lose?'” she continued.

In addition to 'Grace & Frankie,' Jane is also working as the oldest living face of L'Oreal, and is working on two new films, 'Fathers and Daughters' with Russell Crowe and Diane Kruger and 'The Early Years,' a follow-up to Paolo Sorrentino’s 2013's 'The Great Beauty.'
But despite all her success, the mom-of-three still maintains that her greatest joys in life don't necessarily include her onscreen legacies.
“We all wonder what, if anything, we’re going to leave behind. My ability to understand what my life means — to put it in a way that can be meaningful to other people — that’s the gift I would leave behind. It’s the strangeness of my life that is the most important thing about me, more than any particular part of my work," she told 'DuJour' magazine.
