Fonda, 84, explained her views on aging during a performance on “CBS Sunday Morning.” The star promoted his Netflix series, “Grace and Frankie”.
“I’m super aware that I’m closer to death,” the “Youth” actress said. “And it doesn’t really bother me that much.”
“What bothers me is that my body is, you basically do not know mine!” she continued. “My knees are not mine, my hips are not mine, my shoulder is not mine. You are looking at someone who is only me from here.”
