Jane Fonda is an American actress, writer, political activist, former
fashion model and fitness guru. She rose to fame in the 1960s with films such
as Barbarella and Cat Ballou and, with interruptions, has appeared in films
ever since. She has won two Academy Awards and received several other awards
and nominations. She initially announced her retirement from acting in 1991,
and said for many years that she would never act again, but she returned to
film in 2005 with Monster in Law, and later Georgia Rule, released in 2007. She
also produced and starred in several exercise videos released between 1982 and 1995.
Fonda has served as an activist for many political causes, one of the
most notable and controversial of which was her opposition to the Vietnam War.
She has also protested the Iraq War and violence against women. She describes
herself as a liberal and a feminist. Since 2001, Fonda has been a Christian.
She published an autobiography in 2005 and currently resides in Atlanta,
Born December 21, 1937, her primary personality traits are represented by
the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Fire Ox. The Fire Ox is her
proverbial "bull in a china" shop. Her strong determination combined
with Fire's impulsiveness makes she an Ox who all too often charges ahead
without thinking about the (destructive) consequences. If she can control her
emotions and summon up a reasonable degree of practicality, she will have the
capability to do big things and will make an extremely loyal and responsible
friend and family member.
