Jane Fonda has been praised by fans for her "ageless beauty" after sharing a series of images of her latest photoshoot with her Instagram followers. 

The actor, 83, was the worthy cover star of Grazia's 'The Classics Issue' and shared an image of the cover to her Instagram grid. 

Looking classically elegant in a sheer cream blouse with her make-up looking fresh and dewy, the Grace and Frankie star looked a far cry from a typical octogenarian. 

The inside shots are equally timeless, with fans rushing to compliment the star for appearing to age backwards.  

"You’re an ageless, timeless, badass beauty!" one fan wrote. 

"You are Classic beauty Jane Fonda!!!," another agreed. 

"OMG you're a goddess," yet another user commented. 

In the last slide shared to her feed, Fonda also added a sweet message to the photographer, YuTsai, thanking him. 

"Yutsai you made what is my least favourite thing, a most enjoyable experience," she wrote. 

"I hope we remain friends".

In the accompanying interview the Hollywood legend opened up about how she feels about her appearance and admitted that she still finds herself wanting to look attractive to the opposite sex.

“If I’m going to be on a Zoom meeting and I know that there’s going to be a man – even if I go to a doctor and it’s a guy – I mean, I feel ashamed even admitting this, but I pay a little extra attention to how I look than I do if it’s a woman,” she told Grazia.

“I became an adult in the ’50s and it’s just part of my DNA.

“I probably will feel that way on my death bed.”

While it would be easy to put her ageless looks down to more enhancement, Fonda has admitted she’s done with plastic surgery.

Though she has previously chosen to maintain her privacy when it comes to talking about cosmetic treatments, the actor recently seemingly confirmed her decision to undergo cosmetic procedures in the past, but said it is something she’s not going to be doing any more of in the future.

“I can’t pretend that I’m not vain, but there isn’t going to be any more plastic surgery - I’m not going to cut myself up anymore,” she told Elle Canada.

“I have to work every day to be self-accepting; it doesn’t come easy to me,” she added.

According to People, Fonda previously spoke about her previous cosmetic surgeries in her 2018 HBO documentary, ‘Jane Fonda in Five Acts.’

“I’m glad I look good for my age, but I’ve had plastic surgery,” she admitted in the film. “I’m not going to lie about that.”

“On one level, I hate the fact that I’ve had the need to alter myself physically to feel that I’m OK,” she continued.

“I wish I wasn’t like that. I love older faces. I love lived-in faces. I loved Vanessa Redgrave’s face.”

Fonda went on to add: “I wish I was braver. But I am what I am.”

In further proof she is embracing her natural beauty, Fonda has revealed how happy she is to have embraced her grey hair as she was fed up of dyeing it.

Speaking in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show the star discussed her natural locks with the chat show host.

"I'm so happy I let it go grey," she told the host. 

"Enough already, so much time wasted, so much money spent, so many chemicals. I'm through with that."

Fonda also claimed that she only started to spot grey hairs a year ago at the age of 82, meaning that she retained her natural blonde colour for decades.

Unsurprisingly, DeGeneres was pretty impressed with Fonda's age-defying looks.

When Fonda remarked that she was nearly 84, a baffled DeGeneres responded by saying: "84! Oh my god, I pray I look[ed] like that ten years ago!"
