Jane Fonda and Sally Field have made a pact with each other that they will not have any more plastic surgery in their lives and age naturally from now. 69-year old Jane Fonda, who previously had a breast augmentation and facelift (along with other non-surgical procedures), wants to age gracefully without surgical interventions and stop fighting the aging process and embrace it. In an interview with the founder of feminist.com, Fonda says “I realized that I’m going to be 70 in a year, and I have chosen not to have any more plastic surgery. Sally Field and I have kind of made a pact about that. It’s really hard, especially if you’re a public person. But I want to give a face to aging.” In addition to making this admirable pact, Fonda also recently started a radio network to help empower women with a positive voice. Fonda wants to instill a message of self acceptance in women and her message is “That good enough is good enough. We’re not supposed to be perfect. We’re supposed to be complete.”
As for 60 year old Field, she says that since 2005 she decided with Field to live without plastic surgery and age naturally from then on. Lately, Field and Fonda have spent a lot of time together trying to understand this sudden feeling of “becoming whole” that coms unexeptedly with age. “You feel like you are starting to live wholly inside yourself, and it feels fabulous and new and strange,” Field says in a recent AARP interview. “You need to talk about what it feels like, talk about what it means, talk about why it’s happening, talk about what you need to do to keep it happening.” This has meant quitting plastic surgery for good.
In an era that obsesses over the moves of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, we wonder why is it that they don’t make the ladies like they used to. Jane Fonda and Sally Field, apart from being incredible actresses, embody the true spirit of woman and we admire them for their decision. As for whether we agree with it, that’s another thing. But different strokes for different folks.
