New film 80 for Brady had its red carpet premiere at the  Palm Springs International Film Festival on Friday, and the film’s stars, who also happen to be Hollywood legends, were in attendance:  Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sally Field, and Rita Moreno. Talk about a roster! 


The movie follows a group of best friends who make it their mission to get to the 2017 Super Bowl and meet none other than Football all-star Tom Brady, who was then playing for the New England Patriots. Of course, Brady appears as himself in the movie, and Jane Fonda could not gush enough about the man, the myth, the legend.





"He is the GOAT," she told Extra. "I was awestruck, to tell you the truth. I really was. My knees actually started to give away. That doesn’t happen too often…” 


She continued, “When anybody is as good as he is… you have to bow down and honour that… The best the world ever had, plus he is gorgeous."


Why yes. Yes, he is. And he is also recently single, since his marriage of 13 years to supermodel Gisele Bündchen recently ended in divorce, per Forbes. So if we are to read into what she’s saying, and we feel that’s necessary at this juncture, Jane Fonda wants a date with Tom Brady. Can we please make this happen?


The Monster-In-Law star was quick to put an end to that train of thought. “I’m 85!”


God is in the details.


Luckily, Tom has also highly praised Jane and all of his co-stars in the movie. Speaking last year with The Hollywood Reporter, he said, “We found the most amazing actresses: Lily, Jane, Rita and Sally. They brought it all to life. At the end of the day, watching them act and watching them perform was so cool.”


Besides Jane expressing her high regard for Tom, she also had a glowing response to her recent cancer treatment. In 2022, she revealed she had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but by December, she announced she was in remission and could pause her chemotherapy treatments. 


“I stopped chemo, and I feel great!" she told Extra.  Referring to her experience with cancer as an “adventure,” she admitted, "I got a chance to experience what hundreds of millions of other people in the world have experienced. It wasn't the first time I had cancer. And I got lucky. I had really, really good care. I'm lucky. I'm blessed."


We love this for her. Keep fighting, Jane!
