Veteran actor Jane Fonda, says that she underwent plastic surgery because she believes if one doesn’t look good they are not going to be loved. The actor who was part of the 2015 comedy-drama Youth has always been vocal about her facelift procedures and breast implants admitted she went under the knife because of her insecurities.

Reflecting on her life 82-year-old Fonda told The Guardian, “Well, no matter what I do, I’m stuck with this (idea): if you don’t look right, you’re not going to be loved. So I always wanted to try to look right. I think when you’re poor you cut yourself, and when you’re rich you have plastic surgery.”

Fonda, who has been previously married to several people, filmmaker Roger Vadim (1965-1973), activist and politician Tom Hayden (1973-1990) and billionaire Ted Turner (1991-2001), revealed that she is now happy being on her own.
