Jane Fonda reveals the biggest regret she has as a mother of three children

Jane Fonda doesn’t have many regrets in life, but she does have one and she’s currently trying to make up for it.

“I was not the kind of mother that I wish that I had been to my children,” the 85-year-old actor told CNN’s Chris Wallace.

Fonda is the mother of three children: Vanessa Vadim, Troy O’Donovan Garity, and Mary Luana Williams. She recently sat down with Wallace and spoke about not knowing how to parent her children when they were young.

It’s something she has regretted her entire life, but hopes to make up to them.

‘I just didn’t know how to do it.’

It wasn’t until years later when she founded an organization that deals with teens that she began to understand what it meant to parent a child.

Fonda founded the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential (GCAPP) in 1995. The organization’s goal is to improve the overall health and social well-being of young people.

“What I’m really scared of is getting to the end of life with a lot of regrets when there’s no time to do anything about it. And it’s one reason that I try, I’m trying to get it all done before I come to the end.”
