Jane Fonda, 84, has reacted to fans describing her as an icon and said she was “reluctant” to refer to herself as that, and doesn’t often feel that way. She addressed her two million followers as she shared a short clip of her latest interview amid her cancer battle.
The Grace and Frankie actress jokingly said she didn’t feel like an icon when she was sitting alone on her “toilet at night”.
But she added that she will “take” the compliment, insisting she has been “called worse”.
Jane was asked if she considers herself an icon and her immediate response was “who cares?”
However, she expanded, saying: “When I’m at night sitting on my toilet do I feel like an icon? No.
“I’m about a month away from being 85 years old.
“One does think about legacy kind of things.”
Speaking further about her “legacy”, she said the most important part of securing it involved her charity work.
Jane explained the work she’s doing with her “Climate PAC” is her legacy.
It comes as Jane recently announced she is a proud supporter and campaigner for Texas Railroad Commissioner Luke Warford.
Jane explained a huge part of her effort to involve herself in active political and environmental issues is due to her recent cancer diagnosis.
The Hollywood icon has been praised and even called an “inspiration” by her loyal fans as she posted a snap of her workout with her personal trainer, despite her diagnosis.
