Jane Fonda, 85, admits she’s “ready” to die in statement

Jane Fonda has been a famous celebrity for a very long time.

Even if she continues to work, it’s safe to say she’s in the twilight of her career at 85.

While her late age and repeated health scares have alarmed some admirers, the actress recently opened up about her emotions about death, maintaining she is “not scared.”

Fonda has spent virtually her entire life in the spotlight, and she hopes to utilize her remaining time on Earth to emphasize the importance of celebrities using their voices to advocate for important causes.

During a recent interview, the Grace and Frankie star stated that she is “not afraid of death,” but that she will die “sooner rather than later.”

Fonda disclosed in September of last year that she had been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. She stated openly to Entertainment Tonight: “I’m not going to be around for much longer.”

She continued: “When you get to be my age, you better be aware of the amount of time that is behind you, as opposed to in front of you. I mean, that’s just realistic.”

After announcing her cancer diagnosis, Fonda revealed that was would be undergoing chemotherapy treatment.

“So, my dear friends, I have something personal I want to share,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “I’ve been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and have started chemo treatments.

“This is a very treatable cancer. 80% of people survive, so I feel very lucky.

“I’m also lucky because I have health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatments. I realise, and it’s painful, that I am privileged in this. Almost every family in America has had to deal with cancer at one time or another and far too many don’t have access to the quality health care I am receiving and this is not right.”

“I’m ready,” she told ET! “I’ve had a great life.

“Not that I want to go, but I’m aware that it’s going to be sooner rather than later.”

Fortunately, Fonda responded well to her chemotherapy. In a December post on her website, the actress wrote: “Last week I was told by my oncologist that my cancer is in remission and I can discontinue chemo. I am feeling so blessed, so fortunate.

She may be blessed, but the 85-year-old has stated that she has no fear of death.The Academy Award winner believes that death is an adventure and that she is “not afraid of dying.”

“I kind of, you know… I don’t want to go – I still have a lot to do,” Fonda said during an appearance on Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace.

“What I’m really scared of is getting to the end of life with a lot of regrets when there’s no time to do anything about it.”

Fonda admitted that she has “very few regrets,” although she “wishes” she could have been a different “kind of mother” to her children when they were younger.

“I have great, great children, talented, smart – and I I just didn’t know how to do it,” she said.

I for one will certainly miss the legendary Jane Fonda when she’s gone.

    She is a traitor. No one should be offering her work. If they do then they are traitors as well. She doesn’t deserve the success America has gifted her with. She does not love America. Why would anyone listen to her or care about her problems. Because She is a TRAITOR!

    Hanoi Jane Fonda is going straight to hell for her adventure of going to Vietnam during the war and sitting in an anti aircraft gun and criticizing American POWs she will go to hell because she showed that she was low life garbage and turned on her own people
