In fact, the legendary actress plans to maintain her busy schedule alongside her activism, which has focused on climate change in recent years, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Jane Fonda is starring in three new movies, all coming out within about four months, which the long-time star said she’s very pleased about.

“Even at the height of my career — whenever that was, I guess in the ’70s — I never had three movies in one year,” the beloved actress confessed in a new interview with THR. “So I feel pretty lucky,” she added.

Jane Fonda’s first break is her role as Trish in the comedy ’80 For Brady’, alongside Lily Tomlin, Sally Field and Rita Moreno. The ladies star as four elderly women and New England Patriots fans who travel to Houston to watch their hero, Tom Brady.

“80 For Brady” is expected to hit theaters on Feb. 3, which finally comes two days after Tom Brady officially announced his retirement from the NFL after 23 seasons at the age of 45. The other film she is starring in is the independent film ‘Moving On’.

The third film he’s starring in is the romantic comedy Book Club: The Next Chapter, a follow-up to the 2018 white wine-soaked comedy he made with Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen.

The women play four best friends who take their book club to Italy for a fun-girls-trip they’ve never had. When things go awry and secrets are revealed, their relaxing vacation turns into a unique adventure.

Acting, now, for the actress has turned – to a large extent – into a vehicle for her to turn people’s attention to different things. In recent years, the actress has participated in protests in the name of climate change.

Fonda spent her 82nd birthday in jail after being arrested for the fifth time in Washington in 2019, during a climate change protest she called “Fire Drill Fridays.”

Even when cancer knocked on her door, Jane Fonda didn’t give up. “It hit me really hard,” the actress says of chemotherapy. “Sometimes my energy just ran out. When the chemotherapy was in me, after 30 seconds I collapsed.”

Now in a recession, she’s still as busy as ever, devoting time to fundraising and campaigning for political candidates through the Jane Fonda Climate PAC she founded in 2022, while keeping up with the news by reading three newspapers a day and a number of books.

Admitting she doesn’t think much about her own legacy, Jane Fonda admits she’s not afraid to die. “I think I’m telling the truth when I say that,” he says without hesitation, adding: “But I’m afraid, really, that I’ll end up with a lot of regrets when it’s too late to do anything. And when you understand that, it guides the way you live.”

Jane Fonda’s career began with her stage work in the late 1950s, which laid the foundation for her film career around the 1960s.

Among her most memorable films are ‘Cat Ballou’ (1965), ‘The Chase’ (1966), ‘Barbarella’ (1968), ‘Fun With Dick and Jane’ (1977), ‘Coming Home’ (1978) , “The China Syndrome” (1979), “The Electric Horseman” (1979), “On Golden Pond” (1980), “The Morning After” (1986) and “Stanley & Iris” (1990).
