Jane Fonda: Cosmetic surgery integral to youthful appearance
14 September 2011Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda, still hailed by many as a beauty at the age of 73, has revealed that cosmetic surgery is among her tips for ageing gracefully. At the age of 72 she underwent procedures to minimise the effects of ageing along her jawline and under her eyes, to make her face appear less 'droopy'."I felt pretty terrific, but I always looked tired," she said. "I got tired of not looking like how I felt." Fonda's other tips for mature beauty success include a positive attitude about advancing years; reflecting on your background and past; letting go of perfectionism; being independent; being open to intimacy at all stages of life; avoiding unhealthy practices; getting plenty of sleep - and remaining engaged in life. "Learn who you really are to become a whole person," she said. "It takes a lot of courage, because all of the culture is telling us weíre supposed to be this way or that way. "Try to be authentic; try to discover it. And stay interested. Thatís much more important than being interesting."
