At 80 years old, actress Jane Fonda has revealed she’s officially out of the dating game! “I’m not dating anymore, but I did up until a couple of years ago. I’m 80, I’ve closed up shop down there!” she joked in a new interview with Extra.
Jane’s last relationship with music producer Richard Perry ended after eight years in January 2017. “We’re definitely extremely good friends,” Richard said at the time. “We have a great deal of love for each other.” Jane has also been married three times to director Roger Vadim, politician Tom Hayden, and media mogul Ted Turner, but the unions all ended in divorce. “I was a chameleon — the woman men wanted me to be,” Jane has said.

After her divorces, Jane decided to focus more on her acting career. “As I started getting older, I realized, I’m so happy!” Jane revealed during a past interview with Katie Couric. “I didn’t expect this!” In another recent interview with People, Jane opened up about her three marriages. While recalling her past romances, she confessed, “if you don’t feel seen, safe, or celebrated, get out.” And that’s exactly what the starlet did.
This year, Jane will turn 81 and though she is still in great health, the actress has said she’s grateful to still be alive. “I never pictured 30,” she has said. “I assumed I wouldn’t live very long and that I would die lonely and an addict of some sort. I didn’t think if I did live this long, that I would be vibrant, and healthy, and still working. I’m grateful.”
As a mom to three kids — Mary, 50, Vanessa, 49, and Troy, 44 — Jane has shared, “I’ve really worked hard to get better as a human being.” And now Jane knows exactly what to tell her fans when they ask about her life. “When people say, ‘When were you your happiest?’ I would have to say now. I get more than eight hours of sleep every night; I meditate twice a day; I eat right; I work out.”
