In a new interview that will air on OWN Sunday, April 14, the 75-year-old called this phase in life her "third act," which she finds to be "exhilarating."
Fonda explained, "I think it's wonderful. The fact that I made it and I'm all in one piece. You know a couple years ago I got breast cancer, and that was a good test, because I always said I'm not afraid of dying. And I wasn't. I mean, I felt, god, I've just joined a family of millions of women who have gone through this. And how interesting. What a journey this is going to be. [I thought], you know, maybe I'll make it and maybe I won't. I didn't get scared. I hope I don't die. But I'm not scared of dying."
“Good genes and a lot of money!” she laughed with “Extra” special correspondent Hilaria Baldwin.
All kidding aside, Baldwin met up with Fonda at the Sirius XM show “Town Hall with Jane Fonda,” where she was promoting her new workout DVD “Jane Fonda: Prime Time AM/PM Yoga for Beginners.”

Actress Jane Fonda is in talks to portray First Lady Nancy Reagan in the star-ensemble "The Butler," a story revolving around the US presidency, reports Variety.
Based on a Washington Post report by Wil Haygood, the film -- to be helmed by "Precious" director Lee Daniels -- follows Eugene Allen, the White House butler whose career started with Harry Truman in 1952 and ended in 1986 with Ronald Reagan.
It's hard to believe Jane Fonda -- the woman who does it all -- is 73!
"Extra" caught up with the fitness pioneer, political activist and author at her book signing in NYC, and she revealed the secret, explaining, "I'm healthy, I exercise, I eat well, but I think more than anything it has to do with attitude."
The Oscar-winning actress' latest book is called, "Prime Time: Love; Health; Sex; Fitness; Friendship; Spirit" and offers new life lessons, capturing many of Fonda's philosophies on life, love and aging.
At "73 and a half," Jane Fonda still looks fabulous. In the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, the Oscar-winning actress, author and fitness guru talks about the release of her latest book, "Prime Time," -- and how she finally learned to love her body. She also talks about her famous father, screen legend Henry Fonda.
"I was raised in the '50s," she explained. "I was taught by my father that how I looked was all that mattered, frankly. He was a good man, and I was mad for him, but he sent messages to me that fathers should not send: Unless you look perfect, you're not going to be loved."
Actress Jane Fonda was touted for her environmental, human rights and health efforts, as well as her work in women's empowerment and other issues, at the UCLA Longevity Center Icon Awards Saturday.
