The Newsroom star is featured on the cover of Dujour's Spring 2015 issue and reveals what she has learned looking back on her life. "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?'"
It's this outlook that can explain why Fonda admits she still lights up on occasion. "I'll smoke pot every now and then. That revelation comes with a caveat, of course. I cannot see a movie on pot," Fonda explains. "The number of movies I've seen thinking, 'This is probably the best I have ever seen,' and then I'll see it again sober and think, 'What was I thinking?'"
As for her secret to looking phenomenal well into her 70s, the two-time Oscar winner's answer isn't a quick fix.
"I've had plastic surgery. ...That doesn't matter," she begins. "What matters is realizing you can always get better. That you have to keep taking leaps of faith. It gets harder as you get older. You have to stay brave and keep trying to go beyond your comfort zone and see what you need to get to become who you're supposed to be."
Fonda's net move is starring in Netflix's sitcom Grace and Frankie with Lily Tomlin, debuting May 8. The streaming show follows a pair of rivals who find out their husbands want to run off with each other.
