Actress Jane Fonda can't wait for her 75th birthday in 2012 - because it falls on a very special universal date.
The Barbarella star celebrates her birthday on December 21 - the year's shortest day - and she's making plans for her 74th later this month. But she's already looking ahead to next year's party.
She tells late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel, "It happens to be, according to the Mayan calendar, the time when all of the global, cosmic, paradigms are gonna shift, I think for the good. I think everything's gonna get better."
