At 80 years old, Jane Fonda is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. But, the actress is not shy to admit that she's had help from doctors to achieve her youthful look along the way.

In her HBO documentary, Jane Fonda in Five Acts, which premieres September 24, Fonda reveals the internal struggles she's battled over her decision to get work done, according to People.

“On one level, I hate the fact that I’ve had the need to alter myself physically to feel that I’m OK,” she says. “I wish I wasn’t like that. I love older faces. I love lived-in faces. I loved Vanessa Redgrave’s face.”

"I wish I was braver," Fonda adds. "But I am what I am.”

The Oscar-winning actress also shares in the series that she got plastic surgery around her eyes and jawline because she "got tired of looking tired when I wasn’t." But Fonda's openness about her procedures might be surprising to those who saw her awkward interview with Megyn Kelly in 2017.

"I read that you said you're not proud to admit that you've had work done. Why not?," Kelly asked, to which Fonda famously responded, "We really want to talk about that now?"

It's clearly Fonda's choice when and how she wants to discuss her plastic surgery, and her good looks are not only a result of getting work done. People reports that the 1980s fitness icon also reveals in her HBO documentary that she still does Pilates to stay in shape "just more slowly now."

But all that said, Fonda age is about much more than a number. According to her, “Your age is less chronological and more attitudinal."
