Jane Fonda Opens Up About Her Health

"Extra's" Jerry Penacoli caught up with Jane Fonda at the Sundance Film Festival, where she discussed her health, the Women’s March and her new documentary “Jane Fonda in Five Acts.”

Fonda opened up about having a cancerous growth removed from her lower lip, saying, “Yeah, you live long enough, and if you were a sun worshiper, you get cancer, so I’m dealing with it.”

Jane joined women in Park City for the Respect Rally over the weekend. She explained, “I had something specific I wanted to talk about, which is the importance of moving from protesting to organizing.”
