Jane Fonda, 84, graces the cover of Glamor magazine – 60 YEARS after first appearing

Jane Fonda looked nothing short of sensational as she graced the May cover of Glamor magazine – over sixty years since she first appeared.

The screen icon, 84, first posed on the magazine’s front cover in 1959 when she was a 21-year-old model, months before embarking on her movie career.

And as she took front and center of the publication once more, Jane opened up on her incredible career, her mentor Katharine Hepburn’s dislike of her and realizing she was in her ‘final act’ of life after turning 60.

She said: ‘When I was about to turn 60, I realized that I was approaching my third act – my final act – and that it wasn’t a dress rehearsal. One of the things that I knew for sure is that I didn’t want to get to the end with a lot of regrets, so how I lived up until the end was what was going to determine whether or not I had regrets.

‘And it also then dawned on me that in order to know where I was supposed to go, I had to know where I’d been, and so I thought, Well, now’s the time I’m going to research myself…a deep research called a life review.

The icon told how it ‘totally changed’ the way I thought about herself, remarking she wanted ‘to live the last third of my life.’

She added after changing the way she thought, she realized the importance of ‘being intentional’ as one goes through life.

During her interview, Jane also reflected on her relationship with Katharine, who was her mentor, as she told how the legendary actress wasn’t fond of her when they worked together.

She explained: ‘My only mentor that was older than me was Katharine Hepburn. I was in my 40s while we were making [1981 drama] On Golden Pond, and she didn’t like me. She let me know that. She said she learned to admire me but she didn’t really like me. She took me under her wing in a certain way and that was important.’

Meanwhile, amid her cover shoot 63 years after her first cover, Jane reflected on how things had ‘changed’ from those days, as she told how she ‘wasn’t famous’ at the time.

She told how in those days, the magazine simply put models on the cover and that if someone told her that she’d still be working and feeling good at almost 85-years-old, she ‘wouldn’t have believed them.’

She added: ‘At that time in my life, I doubted I would live past 30. Just thinking about that filled me with hope. I didn’t give up. I kept going. I tried to get better. I did.’
