Jane Fonda to be honoured by AFI
Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda is to be recognised with the American Film Institute's lifetime achievement award.
She follows in the footsteps of her father, Henry Fonda, who was handed the AFI's highest honour in 1978.
Fonda has made more than 40 films, winning Academy Awards for both “Klute” in 1971 and 1978's “Coming Home”.
She returned to acting in 2005 after a 15-year hiatus and has recently been seen in HBO drama “The Newsroom” and in Lee Daniels' “The Butler”.
Off-screen, Fonda is a political activist, protesting against the Vietnam war and campaigning for other causes.
She will be presented with the honour at a gala ceremony in Los Angeles next year.
