Jane Fonda, 79, Goes Unretouched on the Cover of Town & Country
Earlier this year Helen Mirren, 72, appeared on the cover of Allure and pioneered a new way of embracing her age by urging people to stop using the term “anti-aging.” And now, Jane Fonda, is making an equally powerful statement by appearing on the cover of Town & Country completely unretouched.

The 79-year-old went all-natural for the November issue appearing on the black-and-white cover wearing a collared shirt, oversize earrings and a chainlink necklace.

Fonda has been a L’Oréal spokesperson since her first campaign in 2014 and just walked in the brand’s Paris show (alongside Mirren!). She’s been open and

Antonio Banderas Questions His Faith in First Trailer For ‘Finding Altamira’

Sometimes, all it takes is something housed in a cave to stir up some serious controversy. The first trailer for the Antonio Banderas-led Finding Altamira has arrived, following an archaeologist (Banderas) in 1879 who stumbles upon paintings with his daughter in a cave in northern Spain that brings to question the current conceptions of faith and being.

These revelations — and the questions they bring with them — threaten to tear apart his familial life, as well as the world at large, as the understanding of wall paintings over 10,000 years old strike at the hearts and minds of the faithful. The film is directed by Hugh Hudson (Chariots of Fire), and also stars Rupert Everett, Irene Escolar, Tábata Cerezo, Javivi, and About Elly and Paterson‘s Golshifteh Farahani.

See the trailer below, along with the poster.

In 1879, Spanish archaeologist Marcelino (Banderas) and his daughter Maria (Allen) discover seemingly impossible paintings of galloping

Jane Fonda Looks Back on Her Acting Debut in a Play With Her Dad

Jane Fonda Looks Back on Her Acting Debut in a Play With Her Dad
Two-time Oscar winner Jane Fonda is stirring up buzz again for her role as an aging Hollywood star in Paolo Sorrentino’s “Youth,” which bowed Dec. 4. Fonda earned her first mention in Variety at a very young age indeed — in a page 1 birth announcement. She was again mentioned in 1956, when she made her acting debut in “The Male Animal,” starring her dad Henry Fonda.

Was it exciting to get your first role?

I was working in Hyannisport at the playhouse, summer interning. I fell in love with the stage manager, James Franciscus, the actor. My dad was doing this play, and they cast me as the ingenue. I was very shy and self-conscious; I didn’t assume I had what it takes to be an actor. My dad would come home from work, and he never seemed joyful.

What changed your mind?

Susan Strasberg suggested I take classes with her father.

AFI Honoree Jane Fonda Draws Strength From Engagement

AFI Honoree Jane Fonda Draws Strength From Engagement
Given Jane Fonda’s hard-earned stature as an actress, activist, author and self-help guru, she’s amazingly humble and grounded in the moment. There’s no calcified nostalgia for the past. Sentences don’t begin with “In my day…” There are no unfavorable comparisons between today’s conglomerated entertainment landscape and Hollywood’s second Golden Era in the ’70s, when she earned Oscars for “Klute” and “Coming Home.”

Instead of citing the icons of her generation and those previous, she’s generous in her praise of younger peers. On Meryl Streep: “She has raised the bar so high that it throws the gauntlet at our feet.” When asked who the equivalents of Costa-Gavras and Stanley Kramer are today, she points to Clooney, Damon and Affleck: “These young and big movie stars also direct and produce movies that are very, very relevant politically and socially.”

Even the relatively green Adam Driver,

Sir Denis Forman obituary

Dedicated chairman of Granada who championed high-quality popular TV

Sir Denis Forman, who has died aged 95, was a driving force in Granada TV, one of the leaders in the first batch of independent regional commercial television companies, from its beginnings in the mid-1950s through to his lengthy spell as chairman (1974-87). Though scarcely ever named as producer, he was directly responsible for many programmes and ran his favourite series as personal fiefdoms. His greatest achievement in this capacity was The Jewel in the Crown (1984), based upon the Raj Quartet novels by Paul Scott.

Forman threw himself headlong into many other enthusiasms, including atheism, battle drill, Mozart and Scottish country dancing. A large man in every sense, he was affable, eloquent and determined. At Granada's Manchester studios in the early days, the shortest path to lunchtime refreshment was barred by a waist-high wall. Forman would lead the way and, despite

Jane Fonda: The Hollywood Interview

Jane Fonda Makes Her Peace

By Alex Simon

Over her more than fifty years on the screen and in the public eye, Jane Fonda has worn more hats than any performer of her generation: daughter of Hollywood royalty (Henry Fonda), Oscar-winning actress, polarizing activist, fitness guru, best-selling author, Broadway star, mother, grandmother and wife, to three of their respective generation’s most influential men (director Roger Vadim, activist/politician Tom Hayden, media titan Ted Turner). Now in her 74th year (she turns 75 in December), Jane Fonda graces the screen again in director Bruce Beresford’s “Peace, Love and Misunderstanding,” a generation gap comedy-drama about an uptight career woman (Catherine Keener) who, after leaving her husband, brings her two kids (Elizabeth Olsen and Nat Wolff) to Woodstock, New York where her estranged mother (Fonda), a former and current hippie, lives on a sprawling farm. Truth, reconciliations and laughter soon follow. The IFC Films release,

QVC Bans Jane Fonda From Promoting Her New Book

It's not like Jane Fonda was going to go on QVC to promote god-forbid feminist issues, she was going on QVC to promote her new book Prime Time: Love; Health; Sex; Fitness; Friendship; Spirit; Making the most of all of your life which comes out in early August. It's QVC's loss. She has track record for her books. She's a best-selling, number one author for her memoir My Life So Far (which if you haven't read you are missing something special) and she has sold millions of exercise videos and DVDs. But QVC cancelled her appearance one day before she…
