Research Brief: Jane Fonda
Hello! Thanks for your question about Jane Fonda’s mastery of acting. The short version is that Jane Fonda is an actress, an activist, and a fitness icon. She has been able to reinvent herself several times over the last 50+ years, and apply new life lessons to her work. Please see the attached document to view all of my findings.
Based on the articles I've found, her must-have basics are authenticity, self-awareness and personal development, the application of personal experience to work, control over her projects, and commitment. The most relevant articles seem to come from 2011, likely because that was when Fonda seemed to make her last big comeback (she's since come to Netflix, but this return seems to be a progression of her previous reinvention). I tried to include current sources that reinforced things that were written in 2011 to support the inclusion of the older sources.
To wrap it up, I discuss Jane Fonda's famous works, rise to fame and how she has used personal experiences, authenticity and happiness to tap into her acting roles. However, I did not find any acting classes Fonda had led or had loaned her name/brand to.
