JANE FONDA

Actress, Activist, Model, Fitness Guru

Where is she from? New York City

What’s she done? The daughter of acclaimed actor Henry Fonda, Fonda starred in the acclaimed films Klute and Coming Home, winning Oscars for both. Off screen, she was a civil rights and anti-war activist. In the 1980s, she successfully launched a series of exercise videos.

Why is she an icon? Fonda is a timeless, seemingly-ageless beauty who has had a stream of successes -and controversies – since she began acting in the 1960s.

Quote: “My childhood was influenced by the roles my father played in his movies. Whether Abraham Lincoln or Tom Joad in the Grapes of Wrath, his characters communicated certain values which I try to carry with me to this day.”
