Jane Fonda set for AFI life achievement honour
Jane Fonda will receive the American Film Institute's 42nd Life Achievement Award, one of Hollywood's most prestigious career honours.
"Jane Fonda is American film royalty," AFI chairman Howard Stringer said in a statement released Thursday.
"A bright light first introduced to the world as the daughter of Henry Fonda, the world watched as she found her own voice and forged her own path."
At 75, Fonda's career hasn't slowed, including recent roles in Lee Daniels' film The Butler and HBO's cable series The Newsroom.
The AFI award will be presented at a star-studded gala on June 5, 2014, to be televised later that month on TNT.
Past recipients of the AFI honour include Fonda's father Henry, Mel Brooks, Elizabeth Taylor, Kirk Douglas, Sidney Poitier, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, George Lucas, Meryl Streep and Martin Scorsese.
