As we often say, age is simply a number but beauty is eternal.  Nobody embodies this philosophy better than Jane Fonda.  At 79 the actress/activist and L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman displays her undeniable beauty on the cover of November’s  Town & CountryUnretouched in black and white, Fonda embraces both the positives and the negatives in her perfectly imperfect life.  ““Perfect?” she says in the accompanying article. “It doesn’t exist. What matters is that you’re whole. I felt so much of my life that I was two people. There was this person everyone saw, and there was another person who lived outside of me, alongside me, who had been delegated all of the imperfect stuff. To become whole, you reach around and pull all those shadows in and they join your light—you put it all together inside your skin. And you accept that, yes, I’m flawed, but my intentions are good, and I will never be perfect, but I will continue to evolve toward that.”

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!”

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.
