Jane Fonda Reveals She’s ‘Had a Lot of Cancer’ and Her Health Struggles Are an ‘Ongoing Process’

Jane Fonda has previously opened up about her past battles with cancer. But in a new interview with British Vogue, the 81-year-old actress revealed her struggle with the disease is an “ongoing process.” 

In the Oscar winner’s own words, she’s “had a lot of cancer.”

Back in the day, she was a “sun-worshipper.”  Now she’s paying for it: “When I have a day off, I frequently go to my skin doctor and have things cut off me by a surgeon.”

In 2010, Fonda revealed she had undergone a procedure to remove a non-invasive tumor in her breast. A representative told People at the time that she walked away “100% cancer-free.”

Six years later, she ended up getting a mastectomy, which led to a specific fashion choice for the 2016 Golden Globes.

“I get out of the car and I have the strange white dress with all the ruffles,” she recalled of her Yves Saint Laurent Couture number. “That’s because I’d just had a mastectomy and I had to cover my bandages.”
