AceShowbiz - Jane Fonda feels sorry for old men, because they're not prepared to step aside and let younger generations take over.
The actress and feminist icon insists women have a much easier time when it comes to the ageing process, because they are constantly changing and adapting to becoming wives, mothers and grandmothers, while men just get old.
"You do get wiser when you get older and older women get older better than men get older and that makes me feel very sad for men...," she told Access Live.
"Men in general, it's hard to be this thing that you're supposed to be when you're a man and change is harder; we change all the time, hormonally, we have kids and then they leave and then we have to adjust... Changing is part of our DNA, but it's harder for men."
Jane also jokes she's a better version of herself in her 80s than she has ever been: "We're more creative, more productive, braver... I don't know about sexier but we do have sex. More candles, more dark red scarves over the lamps," the "9 to 5" star jokes.
