From the co-creator of Friends, the Netflix original comedy Grace and Frankie, stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as two women who form an unlikely bond after their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other.
It’s gentle, funny and poignant and focuses on families, marriage and friendships and how things change as we age.
I have longed to see Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda star in something together, ever since the wonderful 80s film 9 to 5.
Both actresses look fabulous in Grace and Frankie: Lily Tomlin floats around in art teacher/alternative therapist linen layers, while Jane Fonda is all neutral cashmere and soft separates.
Jane Fonda is also starring on the cover of this months W magazine. She of course looks stunning – who wouldn’t with that much work- and she talks about how her life has been defined by men in the past and why she had surgery.
‘I wanted to give a cultural face to older women….I did have plastic surgery. I’m not proud of the fact that I’ve had it. But I grew up so defined by my looks. I was taught to think that if I wanted to be loved, I had to be thin and pretty. That leads to a lot of trouble.’
Despite being the lead characters in Grace and Frankie ( the clue is in the name), Tomlin and Fonda recently revealed they are being paid the same as the male actors and have quite rightly spoken out about how unfair this is.
Lily Tomline said, “Even in little increments, things for women (in film and TV have changed), but there’s still a lot to do and care about.”
Watch Grace and Frankie on Netflix.
