It’s also partly why she initially retired, before feeling comfortable enough to return. “I just changed and decided I could find joy in acting again,” Fonda said, later adding: “It’s one thing to quite when you’re 62, but if you quit when you’re 78 there’s no coming back.”
Part of that joy comes from working on the hit Netflix series, co-starring her longtime friend, Lily Tomlin. Fonda credits Tomlin for making her laugh. “I like to hang around her, because it rubs off,” she said, explaining she doesn’t “really have a natural funny bone.”
Grace & Frankie returns to Netflix for season two on May 6. In the meantime, check out ET’s exclusive blooper reel from the making of season one -- and witness how much fun Fonda had on set.
