Jane Fonda’s body image issues

Los Angeles, Feb 19 (IANS) Actress Jane Fonda had “massive body image issues” while growing up.

The 78-year-old says she struggled to find herself anything other than “fat and unattractive” after her confidence was dented by her father, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“I grew up with massive body image (issues) – my father made me feel that I was fat and unattractive and I don’t think he realised how destructive it was,” Fonda told Paper magazine in a joint interview with actress Lena Dunman.

However, Dunham insisted her parents were always supportive of her, whatever shape she was.

“Despite a knowledge that my body didn’t necessarily meet a perfect norm, I’ve also always felt (comfortable) – and I think a lot of it does come from my parents and that even in our most challenging moments, they’ve always sent me the message that I was, at my very core, ‘enough’,” she said.
