Jane Fonda 'fine' after cancerous growth removed from lip

I thought it was going to heal in time before I came before you, but it's fine.

The 80-year-old actress promoted Season 4 of her Netflix series, Grace and Frankie, with a bandaged lip Monday in NY after undergoing the medical procedure.

The politically quiet Dolly Parton, also onstage, masterfully took things in another direction as soon as she could: "I'm just hoping that I'm going to get one of those Grace and Frankie vibrators in my swag bag tonight".


"I just want to explain the bandage", the two-time Oscar victor told the crowd. And Kelly used the opportunity to ask Fonda about her history with plastic surgery. "I don't normally go around like this". "I've found a clever way to disguise my lip bandages from removal of cancer", the actress wrote.

It's unclear if the Our Souls at Night star's health scare will keep her from attending the Film Festival premiere of HBO's documentary Jane Fonda in Five Acts happening this Saturday. To which Fonda replied, "Yeah, they did [biopsy it.] I'm going to be fine, thanks".

In 2010, People reported that the actress had a tumor removed from her breast.


Sources close to Jane said, "at first her family was distraught, but things worked out just fine". The always glam star still looks picture flawless, bandages or not, as we saw for ourselves when she and Tomlin stopped by TODAY Tuesday morning. The two play rivals who find comfort in each other after their husbands fall in love with each other and decide they want to get married.

Season 4 of Grace and Frankie debut on Netflix on January 19.

A momentarily stunned Fonda then shot back: 'Who are you, Megyn Kelly?' as the set broke out into laughter.
