Jane Fonda leaves Walk of Fame imprints next to father's
Los Angeles: Actress Jane Fonda has been inducted into the Walk of Fame and she says the marks are particularly meaningful because they are next to her dad's spot.
The 75-year-old has her handprint cemented on the concrete next to the mark left by her famous father Henry Fonda who earned his spot on the famous sidewalk more than 70 years ago in 1942.
The actress, who has been in the showbiz industry for 50 years, was feted at the TCL Chinese Theatre, formerly known as Grauman's Theatre. She jazzed things up by leaving a peace sign next to her handprint, reported Ace showbiz.
"I swear I was beginning to think that the only way Hollywood was going to give me this opportunity was if the city laid a new sidewalk in front of my house," the veteran actress joked.
"What is particularly meaningful to me is that I'm going to be right next to my dad right over there and I can feel his presence right now and he used to say to me, 'Jane, don't let this town walk all over you.' Well dad, right now the town can walk all over both of us forever."
Coming to support her at the hand and footprint ceremony was Jane's brother Peter Fonda, her son and 'Gangster Squad' actor Troy Garity. Other celebrity friends like Maria Shriver and Jane's 'Nine to Five' co-star Lily Tomlin were in attendance as well.
