Jane Fonda receives special French award

Friday June 11, 2010

During her nearly 40-year career, actress Jane Fonda has picked up many awards, and on Thursday she added yet another to her collection.

She was honoured with the Great Medal of the City of Paris, presented by Mayor Bertrand Delanoe (pictured) for her contributions to the city's art and culture.

During the presentation, the 72-year-old film and theatre star said she considered the French capital "a second home".

Jane is currently in Paris filming her first French-language movie in 50 years.
