Jane Fonda on the relationship with her father, death and regrets in life

In an interview for Who's Talking to Chris Wallace, Jane Fonda talked about her life and the moments that marked her career. Her father, Henry Fonda, died at the age of 78 in 1982. The relationship between them was not perfect in the beginning, but it got better over time.

Fonda recalled the moments when she decided to open her soul to her father and tell him everything that was on her mind. “Before he died, I was able to tell him, that I loved him and that that I forgave him for, you know, whatever didn't happen.

And I hope that he would forgive me for not being a better daughter. I got to say that to him. He didn't say anything. But he wept. And I had never seen that before. I've never seen my father break down and weep. And it was... it was powerful.

It’s so important to try to clear everything up before you go”. - Fonda said, as quoted by independent.co.uk

Jane Fonda on her life and regrets

Fonda, despite the fact that she is 85 years old, believes that there is still more to do in her life, and she emphasized that she still does not want to end her adventure on planet Earth.

Fonda stressed that her biggest fear is 'regret' “I kind of, you know... I don’t want to go – I still have a lot to do,” Fonda continued. “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”.

Jane didn't have that many moments she regrets. The only thing she regrets is that she did not devote more time to her children. “I have great, great children, talented, smart – and I I just didn’t know how to do it,” she said.
