Jane Fonda placed her hand and footprints next to her famous father’s prints in the concrete shrine to celebrity outside Hollywood’s Chinese Theatre on Saturday. The 75-year-old Oscar winner was joined by her brother, Peter Fonda.
Later, she presented a special screening of the film she made with her dad, Henry Fonda, 1981’s “On Golden Pond.” The cement and cinematic tribute was part of the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival, which is honoring Jane Fonda.
Before the tribute, Fonda reflected on her career. “I’ve made some really good films. There’s also a lot of films I wish I could do over again,” she said. “But I’ve been lucky: I’ve worked with some great directors, and I feel like I’m still a work in progress as an actor. I feel like I’m still learning.”
Rose honors Coretta Scott King
Coretta Scott King, the late widow of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., now has a rose that bears her name. The pink and white flower was planted Saturday at the King Center in Atlanta. The debut of the rose was part of a celebration honoring what would have been the civil rights activist’s 86th birthday. The rose will also be planted at the Georgia State Capitol, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site and Dexter Avenue Memorial Baptist Church, among other places.
