77 Year-Old Fonda Stuns

5/20/2015 8:29am EDT
Jane Fonda Is W Magazine's Oldest Cover Model At 77- And Still L
Jane Fonda proves it- even at 77, she can still rock a magazine cover with the best of them. The actress/activist/model/fitness guru looks great on the cover of W Magazine- and puts a lot of younger models to shame.

Fonda, who stars in Netflix's "Grace and Frankie," spoke to W about how to look her fashionable best even as the big 8-0 rears its ugly head.

"I suppose I've always known what I like on my body," said Fonda, who at 77 is W Magazine's oldest cover model. "I took one look at that Balmain jumpsuit, and I said, 'That's it!' I'm best when I'm wearing something structured, with no f...

About 14 years ago, the star was babysitting her 1-year-old grandson when she heard a noise and her dog started barking like crazy, so she went outside to investigate. When she returned inside and went into the bedroom where her grandson was sleeping, she saw a bear making its way towards the baby.

She explained: "It was walking from the screen door... headed for the crib, where my grandson was sleeping. 'What do I do? I don't know where my gun is, I don't have time t...

'The Newsroom' 2.7: Autopsy of a Bad Decision

The Newsroom
About as brilliant a piece of television as you can get on The Newsroom 2.7 last night, which completed its careful dissection of the worst decision a news network can possibly make.

That decision, which we've seen both the build-up to and (thanks to flashforwards) some of the consequences of all season, was ACN's going live with a stunning report: the US used sarin gas in Pakistan.   This would have been a provocative story for The Newsroom to probe even were it not for the awful synchrony of nerve gas being used by Syria just last week in our reality.   In the case of The Newsroom, it re...

In particular, Curtis was offended by the "We Saw Your Boobs" segment in which MacFarlane poked fun at past and present Best Actress Oscar winners for baring their breasts on film.
Curtis wrote on the Huffington Post: "As an Academy ...
