Ageing

This is why you don't ask Jane Fonda about her plastic surgery procedures

One host got an embarrassing lesson on live TV when Jane delivered the ultimate smackdown.

They say you don’t ask a lady about her age, but can you ask her about her plastic surgery? Well, not if the lady in question is Grace and Kelly actress Jane Fonda. One television host learnt a really hard and awkward lesson on live television when she tried to get Jane to talk about her cosmetic procedures. And a word of warning, the transaction was as uncomfortable as it sounds.

Appearing on morning show Megyn Kelly Today to promote her latest film Our Souls at Night with co-star Robert Redford, the 79-year-old actress was not too thrilled when Megyn asked her about her history with plastic surgery.

"You've been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically. You admit you've had work done, which I think is to your credit," Megyn said. "And you look amazing. Why did you say, I read that you said, you're not proud to admit you had work done. Why not?"

Jane appeared annoyed at the question. She frowned before responding: "We really want to talk about that right now?"

^^Check out that stare-down! COLD.^^

Apparently Megyn didn’t get the hint, and tried the question again, this time flattering the actress’s appearance further. But her attempt flopped even harder than the first when it was clear that Jane, who has been an advocate for political and environmental causes throughout her life, did not want to indulge in the superfluous question. Instead she responded:

"Good attitude, good posture, take care of myself — but let me tell you why I love this movie, Our Souls at Night, rather than plastic surgery," she said.

Of course Twitter had Jane’s back and were just as outraged by the sexist questions. Why didn’t Jane’s co-star, Robert get asked about his appearance? Come on Megyn!
