Jane Fonda has reflected on the plastic surgery she received and revealed that she regrets undergoing facelift surgery.

The 84-year-old actress spoke with Vogue magazine about her H and M Move campaign in a feature and discussed her surgery regrets and the dangers of getting cosmetic procedures.

"I had a facelift and I stopped because I don’t want to look distorted. I’m not proud of the fact that I had one," she explained. "Now, I don’t know if I had it to do over if I would do it."

The Grace and Frankie actress admitted that you can get "addicted" to plastic surgery, saying: "Don’t keep doing it. A lot of women, I don’t know, they’re addicted to it."

While Fonda - who is also known for her range of exercise videos - has her grievances about her cosmetic procedures, she is thankful for the effort she put into looking after her body.

The 9 to 5 star shared her opinion on ageing and told the publication that her "strong thighs" help her maintain a great physique into her 80s.

"I want young people to stop being afraid about getting older. What matters isn’t age, isn’t that chronological number. What matters is your health," she said.

Fonda said that at almost 85 years old, she still "doesn't seem old" and wants people to realize that reaching "a certain age" doesn’t mean your time is up.

The Barbarella actress is no stranger to openly discussing the stigma surrounding old age. In April, she told CBS Sunday Morning, that she's "super-conscious of being "closer to death".

However, Fonda said that while growing older doesn't bother her, she's more worried about her body, explaining: "My knees are not mine, my hips are not mine, my shoulder's not mine. You're looking at somebody who's only me from here up."

The fitness mogul also previously told Glamour magazine that she aimed to live her life so that she doesn’t have any regrets.

"One of the things that I knew for sure is that I didn’t want to get to the end with a lot of regrets, so how I lived up until the end was what was going to determine whether or not I had regrets," she said.

"It totally changed the way I thought about myself and about how I wanted to live the last third of my life. And I realized the importance of being intentional about how we go through life," she added.
