"I'm glad I look good for my age, but I've had plastic surgery", she said.

Fonda's comments about plastic surgery echo what she's said in the past.

The 80-year-old actress has claimed that until two decades ago, her life was defined by the men around her - including father Henry Fonda, and three husbands Roger Vadim, Tom Hayden, and Ted Turner - but when she finally started living for herself instead of aiming to please, she was able to be the person she was supposed to be. On Wednesday night, the 80-year-old actress talked to Stephen Colbert about "the bad thing I did", and said she still regrets it, reports Mediaite.

"I wish I was braver", the star remarked, but she is what she is. I wanted my father to love me so I would turn myself into a pretzel to be what he wanted me to be, not necessarily what I already was.

Beckford, of course, has been feuding with Kardashian after he criticized the many alleged cosmetic procedures she's undergone. Don't make no record with nothing that could be confused. "As far as Tyson Beckford go, don't speak on my wife".

Fonda shared she had work done on her eyes and jawline to feel more comfortable in her own skin as she aged in front of cameras. Moreover, Jane stated her admiration of Vanessa Redgrave's appearence, arguing that she had a handsome "lived-in face".

Fonda said she went under the knife because she looked exhausted a lot of the time, even when she wasn't. I loved Vanessa Redgrave's face. He was a good man, and I was mad for him, but he sent messages to me that fathers should not send: "Unless you look flawless, you're not going to be loved". It can be an addiction. And a woman who has been sexually abused will have a tendency to go too far. When you're young it can be [self harm] and when you're older it can be plastic surgery. When I see a woman who's made her face a mask I say: "'I bet, I bet'".

Jane Fonda says she still works out regularly to stay in shape.
