Acting legend Jane Fonda has revealed that she’s finally embracing gray hair, and we’re sure you'll agree she looks fantastic.

The Grace and Frankie star also shared that she'd recently had her Covid vaccination exclaiming, “I’m lucky, I didn't have any reaction to it, it certainly didn't hurt!”

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, Jane said she had decided “enough is enough” and to embrace her natural hair color during lockdown.

Host Ellen told the star, “You know, I say this to you every time I see you, but you look fantastic. You look better than you've ever ever looked.”

“I tell you, I'm so happy I let it go gray,” Jane said of her hair. “Enough already with so much time wasted, so much money spent, so many chemicals. I'm through with that.”

The star appeared on the show to discuss her recent involvement in the documentary 9to5: The Story of A Movement.

“When I was in D.C. for four months doing Fire Drill Friday, trying to call attention to the urgency of the climate crisis, I noticed very early on that two-thirds of the people in the crowd were women, tended to be older women, and I kind of understand why,” she explained.

“I mean what the hell do we have to lose, right? We're probably not living with a guy who doesn't like strong women anymore, at least that's my case. And we have more time, we have more wisdom, and we just show up for things.”

We couldn’t agree more!
