Jane Fonda: "Prime Time" (Rebroadcast)

Jane Fonda talks with Diane about love, health, fitness and friendship. The award-winning actress explains how life's third act can be the most fulfilling.

No one looking at Jane Fonda today would consider her “over the hill.” The seventy-three-year-old author, actress, and workout pioneer looks to be in the prime of her life. In her best-selling memoir, My Life So Far, Fonda focused on the first half of her life – which she calls Acts I and II -- with an eye toward preparing for a vibrant Act III. Now, she has written a new book that explores how this third act can be an opportunity to become the people we were always meant to be. She explores how re-thinking exercise, diet, and relationships can transform the so-called golden years. Jane Fonda talks with Diane about her life today and why she is the happiest she’s ever been.
