London, Oct 5: Two-time Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda is all set to receive American Film Institute's lifetime achievement award, which is one of the highest honours in Hollywood.
Chairperson of the AFI board, Howard Stringer said in a statement that the 75-year-old actress is American film royalty, the BBC reported.
Jane, who has recently been seen in HBO drama The Newsroom and as Nancy Regan in Lee Daniels' The Butler, rose to fame in the 1960s with films including 'Period of Adjustment' and 'Walk on the Wild Side.'
She is also known for protesting against the war in Vietnam in the 1970s.
It is worth noting here that the actress' father Henry Fonda was also handed the AFI's highest honour in 1978.
