10. Jane Fonda
Born into an acting dynasty and active since the ’60s, the seemingly ageless Jane Fonda would make her acting debut in the 1960 Broadway play There Was a Little Girl and win the first of many
awards throughout her long and illustrious career. That same year she would make her big-screen debut in the romantic comedy Tall Story and spend the majority of that decade wowing audiences with her infectious charm and effortless comedic talents.
The 1960s would also see Fonda become a box-office draw and a fierce political activist in the counterculture era with her support of the Civil Rights Movement and opposition to the Vietnam War. As her career continued to go from strength to strength, so did her desire to use her platform to make real change in the world. At 84, she shows no sign of slowing down and continues to fight for feminist causes, Native Americans, LGBTQ+ rights, and a dedicated environmental activist.
