American actress, daughter of screen star Henry Fonda

Although Fonda initially showed little inclination to follow her father's trade, she was prompted by Joshua Logan to appear with her father in the 1954 Omaha Community Theatre production of The Country Girl. Her interest in acting grew after meeting Lee Strasberg in 1958 and joining the Actors Studio. Her screen debut in Tall Story (1960) marked the beginning of a highly successful and respected acting career highlighted by two Academy Awards for her performance in Klute (1971) and Coming Home (1978) and 5 Oscar nominations for Best Actress in: They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969), Julia (1977), The Morning After (1976) and On Golden Pond (1981), which was the only film, she made with her father.

Jane Fonda's professional success contrasted with her personal life, often laden with scandal and controversy. Her appearance in several risqué movies (including Barbarella (1968) by then husband Roger Vadim was followed by what was to become Jane Fonda's most debated and controversial period: her espousal of anti-Establishment causes and especially her anti-War activities during the Vietnam War. Her political involvement continued with fellow activist and husband Tom Hayden in the 70s and early 80s. In the 80s Fonda started the aerobic exercise craze with the publication of the "Jane Fonda's Workout Book.

This is a very fine original colour publicity photograph (8" x 10") for Fonda's 2005 comedy, Monster-in-Law, showing her in the title role as the appalling Violas Fields. There's a bold signature in black ink across the image.  There's a small, thin scrape in the lower left corner margin (visible on the scan), but overall condition is excellent.
