Its hard to imagine that leading ladies Alfre Woodard, Jane Fonda, and Sharon Stone would come together to appear on the June/July cover of the same magazine.  What’s even more shocking is that the publication is AARP The Magazine.  At 63, 78, and 58, respectively, these ladies are proving that beauty has no age limit.  Speaking candidly with the publication on “the radical idea of owning their age in Hollywood,” Stone admits that one benefit is, “I’ve stopped questioning everything, and that gives me a lot more room to breathe. I think it’s just getting comfortable in your self – in everything, but certainly the work.”  Fonda adds, “If you’d told me when I was 20 or 30 that I’d be happier at 70, I would have said to you, ‘You’re out of your mind’,” adding, “At 20, I was so old – I was cynical, hopeless, drifting through life. Same at 30. I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I didn’t know who I was.”  Woodard is facing her age head on.  “I don’t want to put an expiration date on showing my jiggly legs at the beach, or say, ‘I’m over 50. I shouldn’t wear this.’ No, this is my 63-year-old butt, and I am free and happy. It has earned its freedom!”

Fonda W

Proving that age and beauty are not mutually exclusive, actress, activist, fitness guru, and style icon, Jane Fonda, 77, appears on the June/July cover of W Magazine.  The two-time Oscar winner and philanthropist reveals that when she was in her early 60s, “I realized I didn’t have a lot of time left, and I wanted to pay more attention,” explaining, “I had a vision:  I wanted to give a cultural face to older women.”  Translation:  her tour as a L’Oreal spokesperson.

Over the decades, Fonda’s look has changed as frequently as her men.  “I did have plastic surgery.  I’m not proud of the fact that I’ve had it. But I grew up so defined by my looks. I was taught to think that if I wanted to be loved, I had to be thin and pretty,” she admits, adding, “That leads to a lot of trouble.”

The new issue of W Magazine, featuring Jane Fonda, hits newsstands on June 2nd.

Multi-hyphenate, Ellen DeGeneres, always knows how to get a good laugh — sometimes at the expense of her closest friends and family.  The comedienne/daytime host posted a video on Facebook of her beautiful wife, Portia de Rossi, getting physical while emulating moves from one of Jane Fonda’s iconic 1980’s fitness videos.  Unfortunately, de Rossi’s hadn’t realized that she was being filmed!  Commenting on her post DeGeneres wrote, “Portia said it was okay if I watched her do her Jane Fonda workout. She didn’t say anything about filming it and putting it on Facebook.”  De Rossi responded via Twitter, “Can’t a girl do a little @Janefonda Low-Impact workout in Peace??!”

The smooth moves, however, are quite timely, as Fonda re-releases her five most popular VHS tapes on DVD and digital download on Tuesday.  Credited for producing the best selling fitness videos of all time, with twenty-two titles and sales of more than seventeen million copies, Fonda, 72, shares, “People always tell me how the Workout changed their lives and ask why we never released the original titles on DVD.”  Adding, “Even recently Michael Strahan revealed that he used the workout tapes to, as he said, literally work his butt off, and credited them with his becoming conscious of the importance of working out.”
