UPI News Service, 10/04/2013
The American Film Institute said Friday it will honor Jane Fonda with the 42nd AFI Life Achievement Award at a June gala in Los Angeles.
AFI Board of Trustees Chairman Howard Stringer announced Fond will receive the award at a star-studded tribute June 5.
"Jane Fonda is American film royalty," Stringer said in a statement. "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 as an actor and a cultural icon. Today she stands tall among the giants of American film, and it is AFI's honor to present Jane Fonda with its 42nd Life Achievement Award."
Fonda is a seven-time Academy Award nominee. She won best actress Oscars for "Klute" in 1971 and "Coming Home" in 1978.
