Jane Fonda “doesn’t know” if she will return to the cinema.
The 83-year-old actress had years of success on the big screen, but in recent years has left her “snobbish” approach to television behind and understood that her “future” lies in television because it is a better medium for older women .
She told Harper’s Bazaar, “I was one of those movie people who was snobbish about television for a long time.
“Aaron Sorkin offered me this ongoing role on The Newsroom and I realized that this was my future. I am old.
“Television is more forgiving to older women, so I said, ‘OK, I’ll start paying attention.’
“So I started watching TV and now I don’t know if I’ll be going back to the theaters. I love tv. “
The ‘Grace and Frankie’ star was never interested in becoming a director because she’d rather be part of a team than the leader.
When asked if she ever wanted to direct, she said, “No. I am not a good leader. I look like a leader but I am not. I feel very uncomfortable being up front. What I love about filmmaking and television is the collaborative part of it, people working together. I never liked being the head. I’m freezing.
“[Robert] Redford always used to say, “Why don’t you go?” And I just couldn’t explain to him why I’m not interested.
“When I belong to a pack, all of my juices start flowing.
“And I seem to be a leader because I have a lot of ideas, but I’m not the ultimate responsible person. I just love to work and then come home and have a martini or a hot bath. “
