Early Life and Career Beginnings
Jane Seymour Fonda was born on December 21, 1937, in New York City. Henry Fonda, her father, was a well-known American actor, and Frances Ford Brokaw, her mother, was a Canadian socialite. While receiving treatment at Craig House psychiatric institution, her mother committed suicide. Fonda attended Greenwich Academy in Connecticut, the Emma Willard School in New York, and Vassar College in New York.
Fonda began her career in the entertainment industry as a model, appearing twice on the cover of Vogue Magazine. After appearing alongside her father in a charity performance of the play “The Country Girl,” she decided to pursue acting.
Fonda starred in multiple films during her early cinematic career in the 1960s, averaging nearly two pictures per year. “Tall Story” (1960), “Walk on the Wild Side” (1962), “Cat Ballou” (1965), “The Chase” (1966), and “Barbarella” (1970) are among them (1968). Her breakout performance, “Cat Ballou,” is frequently cited as the one that catapulted her to prominence. The picture garnered five Academy Award nominations and was one of the best-selling films of the year at the box office. In addition, “Barbarella” is often regarded as the picture that established Fonda’s reputation as a sex icon.
During Fonda’s acting career, the 1970s were her most critically lauded years. She won her first Academy Award for Best Actress for the murder mystery “Klute” (1971); “Tout Va Bien” (1972); “A Doll’s House” (1973); “Fun With Dick and Jane” (1977); “Julia” (1977); “Coming Home” (1978), for which she won her second Academy Award for Best Actress; and “The China Syndrome” (1979), for which she won a BAFTA Award for Best Actress.
Fonda co-starred with Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton in the massively popular “9 to 5” in 1980, which was the year’s second highest-grossing film. In 1981, she realized a long-held ambition to star with her late father, Henry Fonda, in the film “On Golden Pond,” which proved to be a cathartic experience for both of them, as their relationship had been strained for some time. They also made history by becoming the first father-daughter combo to be nominated for an Academy Award for the same film; Jane was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, while Henry won his first Oscar for Best Actor. “The Dollmaker” (1984) and “The Morning After” (1986) are two other important films in which Fonda appeared in the 1980s (1986).
Fonda announced her retirement from acting in 1991, and her final film was the drama “Stanley & Iris” (1990). In 2005, she made a comeback in the film “Monster-in-Law,” starring Jennifer Lopez. She later starred in the drama “Georgia Rule” opposite Felicity Huffman and Lindsay Lohan (2007). Fonda also made her first Broadway appearance in 1963 in 2009, in the production of Moisés Kaufman’s “33 Variations.” She appeared in films such as “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding” (2011), “The Butler” (2013), “Better Living Through Chemistry” (2014), and “This Is Where I Leave You” (2015). (2014). She has appeared in the television shows “The Newsroom,” “The Simpsons,” and “Grace and Frankie” on Netflix.
Fonda was unable to attend her usual ballet sessions after suffering a foot injury while filming “The China Syndrome.” To stay in shape, she went to aerobics, which she did under the supervision of Leni Cazden. The “Jane Fonda Workout” was renamed after “The Leni Workout,” which helped to launch a fitness trend in the 1980s. In 1981, she published “Jane Fonda’s Workout Book,” which was followed by “Jane Fonda’s Workout,” a fitness film that went on to sell over a million copies. She released 23 fitness DVDs, 5 workout manuals, and 13 audio programs in 1995. In 2010, she returned to fitness with two new DVD videos aimed towards an older audience.
Fonda is arguably best known (infamously) for her contentious anti-Vietnam War stance in the 1960s and her early 1970s support for the Black Panthers (a black revolutionary socialist movement). Fonda visited Hanoi (Vietnam’s capital) in 1972 and was pictured sitting atop an anti-aircraft battery, which enraged Americans and earned her the moniker “Hanoi Jane.” She has since apologized for some of her remarks and actions, but she does not regret her journey to North Vietnam.
Ted Turner Divorce Settlement
Ted is said to have paid Jane more than $100 million in liquid assets (cash and shares), including stock in his company just before it merged with AOL at the height of the dot-com bubble. She also inherited a 2,500-acre ranch and other substantial real estate assets. While this may appear to be a significant achievement, Ted Turner’s portfolio includes far more than a single 2,500-acre ranch. Ted is the second-largest landowner in the United States, with nearly two million acres of personal and ranch land as of this writing. He has enough land to ride a horse from Canada to Mexico without ever leaving his farm.
Purchasing Real Estate
She paid $5.45 million for a townhouse in Century City, Los Angeles, in 2017.
