“The best way to fight depression is to keep moving”
This, however, is not the first time Fonda has spoken about depression or dealing with unpleasant news. Earlier in February, she said: “I come from a long line of really depressed people,” before adding, “and the best way to fight depression is to keep moving.” GQ reports that after trying to avoid exercise during her teenage years, Fonda found a passion for physical activities quite late in life saying, “It wasn’t until my late 30s, early 40s that I really started to be active. Life before I was active wasn’t as good as when I started moving.”
The National Women’s Hall of Famer also shared, “I always had a penchant for falling in love. Every time I found myself without a partner, I went into a low-level panic state. I was so devastated by my second divorce that I had a nervous breakdown,” he reportedly said Oprah.com. It was then that her third husband, Turner, first proposed to her. However, she said that when she divorced Turner, “something felt different.” After spending time alone in Atlanta, she realized, “I don’t need a man to make me feel whole. In my marriages, I had lost parts of myself because I was trying to mold myself into what I thought a man wanted. But at that moment, I felt all those pieces flying back together.”
“I don’t want to be in a relationship”
Although the octogenarian became a love guru, she has no intention of getting back into a relationship. She said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in April 2021: “I don’t want to have a relationship again, a sexual relationship. I don’t have that desire”. However, this does not stop her from fantasizing. “That I meet a teacher or a researcher, someone along those lines who is actually able to love, to love a woman, so that he could test me and see if I can come in. I think maybe now I could, but the problem is that, as a man , I’d like a younger man,” says the Hollywood icon. She finally declared, “It’s a matter of skin. I’d like a younger man, and I’m too vain.”
Fonda announced her diagnosis of on-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in September 2022, but has been declared in remission after chemotherapy in December 2022. Reflecting on her remission, Fonda said, “I won,” GQ reports.
