Fonda was treated to a cake and the “Happy Birthday Song” by Fisher and Tomlin. The actress has deep roots in activism. She made waves in the early 1970s when she shared her dissenting opinion about the Vietnam War.
In 1972, she traveled to Hanoi, Vietnam and posed in an infamous photo where she sat on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft battery. She was called “Hanoi Jane” after the incident.
In May, the Monster-in-Law actress talked to AARP The Magazine about rethinking her approach to acting.
“Last year I thought, ‘I can’t very well leave the business now and never come back. Maybe I should find out what’s up.’ So I went into therapy and got an acting coach,” she said.
“It’s really scary when you’re looking at it from the outside,” Fonda continued. “When you’re inside it, it’s not scary at all. You feel better.”
She added: “If you’d told me when I was 20 or 30 that I’d be happier at 70, I would’ve said to you, ‘You’re out of your mind.’”
