What is Jane Fonda's net worth? A look at her fortune, villa and $100M divorce settlement with Ted Turner
Jane Fonda is all set to receive the Cecil B DeMille Award at this year’s Golden Globes. The honor recognizes Fonda’s illustrious career in film, one that saw her top the box office and cement her name in the history of movies. Now, internet wants to know how much wealth has the 83-year-old star amassed in her decades-long career.
Fonda started her career on the stage in Nebraska in 1954 and by 1959 she had appeared on the cover of Vogue as a model. The next year, Fonda’s first film 'Tall Story' was released. According to IMDb, it grossed $12,000,000 at the US box office. Fonda starred alongside Anthony Perkins, who played the character of Norman Bates in 'Psycho' the same year.
In 1979, Fonda went beyond acting and modeling to start a fitness studio, which expanded to a best-selling workout book and eventually to a workout video. In 1980, Fonda starred alongside Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton in the film '9 to 5', which grossed $103,290,500 in the United States. The home video, 'Jane Fonda’s Workout' cost $59.95 when it was released and within a year, 200,000 videos were sold. Eventually, it became the top-grossing home video of all time and Fonda released 25 other workout videos, most recently in 2012, according to HuffPost.
Though she took a break from acting around 1990, she returned in 2005 to star in the film 'Monster-in-Law'. Fonda continues to act on the small screen in Netflix’s series 'Grace and Frankie', which started in 2015 and released its sixth season in 2020. Fonda’s life was also the subject of a 2018 HBO documentary called 'Jane Fonda in Five Acts'. She is the recipient of various accolades including two Academy Awards, two BAFTA Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, a Primetime Emmy Award, the AFI Life Achievement Award and the Honorary Golden Lion.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, her net worth is estimated to be $200M. In 2001, when she divorced CNN founder Ted Turner, Fonda got over $100M in liquid assets alone (cash, stock), including stock in his company right before it merged with AOL at the peak of the dotcom bubble. She also got several valuable real estate assets such as a 2,500-acre ranch. And while that may seem like a big deal, a single 2,500-acre ranch is a tiny speck in Turner's portfolio. Turner is the second-largest landowner in the United States with about two million acres of personal and ranch land. He has enough land to be able to ride a horse from Canada to Mexico without leaving his own property.
In January 2018, Fonda listed a home in Beverly Hills for sale for $13M and ultimately sold it off for $8.5M in 2018. She paid $7.3M for the property in 2012. In 2017, she paid $5.45M for a townhome in LA's Century City. The luxurious house is tucked behind a guard-gated community. The 6,679-square-foot, Mediterranean-style villa boasts four bedrooms and seven bathrooms along with an outdoor patio for the perfect spot for dining al fresco.
