NEW YORK • Jane Fonda did not think the question was fit to be asked.
Appearing on the Megyn Kelly daytime show on Wednesday, the 79-year-old actress was asked about her past plastic surgeries.
Fonda was on the show with actor Robert Redford to promote their new movie, Our Souls At Night.
Kelly said: "You've been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically. You admit you've had work done... I read you said you felt not proud to admit you had work done. Why not?"
Fonda gave her a long hard stare before she said archly: "We really want to talk about that now?"
According to various media reports, Kelly tried to restore peace by saying: "One of the things people think about when they look at you is how amazing you look."
Fonda, mollified, said: "Well, thanks. Good attitude, good posture, take care of myself."
She added: "But let me tell you why I love this movie that we did, Our Souls At Night, (pause) rather than plastic surgery."
