In New York, Friends, Fans and Family Honor the Oscar-Winning Actress and Lobby for Her Screen Return
Also, to be sure, a world-class acting career, distinguished by seven Oscar nominations and two Best Actress wins (for 1971's Klute and 1978's Coming Home). "I feel great—very honored," proclaimed the 63-year-old Fonda, who attended the gala—and a dinner at Tavern on the Green afterward—with son Troy Garity, 27, and daughter Vanessa Vadim, 32, who made the star a grandmother in 1999.
Among those toasting Fonda was actress Sally Field, a longtime friend. "She is 'it' as far as I'm concerned," declared Field, adding that the former aerobics guru "taught me I didn't have to starve myself to look fit." Director Sydney Pollack praised Fonda's range, noting, "She's as versatile as anybody we have."
Which begs the question: Will Fonda, who has not appeared in a film since 1990's Stanley and Iris, ever return to the silver screen? Although she says no, many of the gala's attendees warned against counting her out just yet. "This [award] is the intro," said her son, "to her final act."
