Childhood celebrities often open up about their struggles growing up in the limelight once those traumatic incidents become a figment of their past.
Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda celebrated her 80th birthday on Dec. 21, but she said she never thought she would have made it that far.
“I’m thankful that I’ve gotten better over the 80 years. I’m less judgmental. I’m forgiving. It wasn’t always true. I’ve really worked hard to get better as a human being.”
Although Jane's family comprised of movie legend Henry Fonda and socialite mother Frances Ford Seymour, her life didn't have the glamour many thought it had.
It was filled with tragedy, and a life that made the young star question her health and longevity.
In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine, the Grace and Frankie actress also opened up about one of her major regrets.
