“I think that you remain energetically with the people that loved you, which is why it’s so important to be loved than to love,” she said to Colbert. “If people love you, then you remain in their memory energetically.”

Her father was legendary actor Henry Fonda, who passed away in 1982 at the age of 77.
Fonda, who has won 2 Academy Awards for Best Actress, is set to finish up her run on the Netflix series "Grace and Frankie" alongside Lily Tomlin.
