Jane Fonda, 86, Sparks Reactions after Wearing Medical Boot & Walking with a Cane

Jane Fonda appeared in a recent picture wearing a medical boot and using a walking cane, a sight that has caused reactions from social media users.

Yesterday, fashion magazine and iconic actress, Jane Fonda, shared a joint post of her and media mogul Oprah Winfrey in a black and white photo. The two Hollywood stars were posing for the new British Vogue magazine issue, which featured a variety of other powerful women in the entertainment industry.

In the photo, Fonda and Winfrey were seen walking arm-in-arm as they looked at the camera. Of particular interest to the public was the walking boot Fonda had on and the walking stick she used.

One person questioned, “What’s with the cane[?]” while another noted, “Poor Jane has a moon boot.” A third one, who seemed to think Fonda’s cane enhanced her chic look asserted, “Jane with the Cane ain’t nothing to play around with.”

A social media user who noticed something else they found peculiar about the image pondered, “Am I the only one that’s noticing something wrong with their hands?”

For those who were left perplexed as to why Fonda was walking with a cane and medical boot in the British Vogue magazine shoot, the “Book Club” talent opened up about her health issues years ago. In 2019, the then 81-year-old entertainer shared that she has “had a lot of cancer.”

She then cited another scenario where her choice of outfit at the 2016 Golden Globes was influenced by a health condition. “I get out of the car, and I have the strange white dress with all the ruffles? That’s because I’d just had a mastectomy, and I had to cover my bandages,” clarified Fonda.

Fonda, who previously said that her cancer diagnosis was “an ongoing process,” then explained that she endures a lot of bodily aches and pains. She disclosed that this condition is genetic for her, citing her father and brother having gone through the same ailment. The mom of three has also had both of her hips and a knee replaced.

In 2022, Fonda sat down for an interview and discussed her hit series, “Grace and Frankie,” with acting legend Lily Tomlin. During the conversation, Fonda confirmed her replacement surgeries when she mentioned being extremely conscious about death.

She divulged, “What bothers me is that my body is, you know, basically not mine. My knees are not mine, my hips are not mine, my shoulder’s not mine.”

Nonetheless, Jane Fonda is most appreciative of existing and still having the ability to work at her age. It’s this zest for life that has allowed her to make peace with the fact that she may not be able to do certain physical activities because of her ailing joints.
