Jane Fonda will receive a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes on 28 February. The actress, whose career has spanned six decades, was praised for her "undeniable talent" by the ceremony's organisers.

Fonda will take home the esteemed Cecil B deMille Award at the event in Beverly Hills, California.

"Her undeniable talent has gained her the highest level of recognition," said the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). "While her professional life has taken many turns, her unwavering commitment to evoking change has remained."

She made her debut in 1960, going onto star in Barbarella, Nine to Five, Coming Home and On Golden Pond. Fonda is also known as a long-standing committed activist - back in the '60s, she protested against the Vietnam war and over the last few years has campaigned against climate change. She has been arrested a total of six times in relation to her activism.

"I want to be able to get to the end of my life and feel that I've done my best," Fonda told us in 2020. "What motivates me to keep going as an activist is because of what's at stake. Whether there's a future that is worth living in, is at stake. And if that's not a motivation I don't know what is. I don't give up and become disengaged because I want to be able to sleep."
