Remember that movie from back in 1980, called Nine to Five? Well, that’s where Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda worked together at first, on the set of that movie, along with Dolly Parton and many other super talented actors. From reading an article (click to see link) a while ago, I found out that Jane Fonda really loves working with Tomlin, and said that they “have a special bond and a friendship”, and that she loves Tomlin’s sense of humor. Lily Tomlin definitely does seem to have a flare for the funny stuff. This is shown really well with her more recent acting job, her series with Fonda once again, Grace and Frankie. Two seasons are available to watch on Netflix.
For anyone who isn’t familiar with the show, it’s about these two women living together after their long-time husbands leave them to be together. Building a strong friendship based on this very unusual situation, Fonda and Tomlin get through all of it together. The hilarity that this show brings is quite amazing, made me laugh throughout the whole thing.
