'Inside oldness,' Jane Fonda isn't afraid of aging

November 19, 2010 |  2:23 pm

Jane Fonda on V magazine The Ministry is declaring it You Gotta Hand It to Jane Fonda Day.

In addition to general awesomeness and a set of survival skills only a true Hollywood legend could have, Fonda recently came through a cancer scare and now stars on the cover of V magazine's age issue.

Styled in leopard prints and chunky jewels, Fonda, 72,  doesn't shy from talk of being A Certain Age.

"We always fear getting older when we're young. It's scary when you're on the outside. But when you're inside oldness, it's not scary," she said.

Fonda recently discovered a small tumor, feared to be breast cancer. Scans revealed the mass was benign and she's now cancer-free.
