Jane Fonda is assessing among her greatest remorses: Parenting

As mommy to Vanessa Vadim, 54, Mary Luana Williams, 55, and Troy O’Donovan Garity, 49, “I was not the kind of mother that I wished that I had been to my children,” Fonda stated in an interview with CNN that airedFeb 21. “I have great, great children—talented, smart. And I just didn’t know how to do it.”

But, through her advocacy work, the 85- year-old has actually found out much better. “I’ve studied parenting, and I know what it’s supposed to be now,” she admitted. “I didn’t know then. So I’m trying to show up now.”

Rectifying her previous errors is a concern as she enters her last phase of life.

“It’s so important to try to clear everything up before you go,” the Grace and Frankie star shared. “What I’m really scared of is getting to the end of life with a lot of regrets when there’s no time to do anything about it. It’s one reason I’m trying to get it all done before I come to the end.”
