Jane Fonda can do it all, but even the queen needs some rest. Fonda was scheduled to present the 2017 SAG Awards Lifetime Achievement Award to Lily Tomlin, alongside the rest of the crew from the 1980 film 9 to 5. According to her friend Dolly Parton, Fonda was under the weather tonight and unable to present the award.
Tomlin starred alongside Fonda then, and today they co-star and co-executive produce the Netflix original series Grace and Frankie. We're cheering for a reunion, soon, because 9 to 5 is the fighting feminist manifesto we all need right now. Plus, we were looking forward to her killer red carpet style.
Fonda has worn everything from sleek tuxedos to couture gowns in the red carpet. Fonda has never subscribed to gender or age-restrictive fashion "rules," and at 80-years-old, she's not changing now. While promoting Grace and Frankie, she played tribute to her '60s activism with a floral pantsuit and showed off a lifetime of incredible fitness in sleeveless gowns. She often wears prints, like the glittering animal print gown she wore to the White House Correspondents dinner, and she also looks amazing in solid colors, of course.
Fonda is also nominated for a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her role in Grace and Frankie.
