Megyn Kelly vs. Jane Fonda on plastic surgery. The former still has her youthful looks, the latter has delayed old age by artificial means. They tangled on Kelly’s Today show a couple years ago because Megyn dared to ask about Fonda’s plastic surgery on a show about ageism.
It was ridiculous for Fonda to be upset then, but here’s what she said at the time:
“Given the fact that we don’t have a lot of time and Bob is right here, it’s a weird thing to bring up, whether I’ve had plastic surgery or not,” Fonda told ET Canada. “I have and I’ve talked about it. Seemed like the wrong time and place to ask that question.”Megyn Kelly reacts to Jane Fonda announcing she won’t get any more plastic surgery, 2 years after their tense interview
Now at age 82, Fonda is giving up plastic surgery for good. You think? Maybe Fonda should be encouraging other Hollywood women to just say no to plastic surgery rather than worry about a talk show host and journalist asking relevant interview questions.
Look, I get that we all want to look young as long as we can, especially women who see their roles diminish in Hollywood as they age. When was the last time you saw Jane Fonda starring in a feature length movie? I think it’s cool we get Sir Patrick Stewart back as Picard at 80. There just aren’t enough lead acting roles for seniors.
Here’s the thing about being in your 80s. It’s not criminal to look like you’re in your 80s. Jane Fonda looks like she’s in her late 50s to 60s. Great, plastic surgery works, I guess, but it makes your face look all kinds of Joker mask. If you’re an actor and playing senior roles, she’ll need makeup effects to look older.
Oh, the irony.
