‘My knees actually got weak when he walked into my trailer,’ she admitted to The Hollywood Reporter.

‘I’m in awe of that kind of skill. When somebody is the best in the world at what they do, you have to honor that and respect it. I was just awestruck.’ 

She continued, ‘He was kind and humble, which is hard to believe considering how brilliant he is at what he does, but it’s true. He was also sweet and polite.’ 

80 for Brady tells of story of four women who get together and take a trip to Houston for the 2017 Super Bowl, in which Tom led the New England Patriots to a historic comeback victory.

Wacky hijinks ensue, particularly when it emerges the foursome neglected to buy tickets and have to pretend to be pro dancers to sneak into the event.

Fonda, Lily Tomlin, 83, Rita Moreno, 90, and Sally Field, 76, star as the four women. 

The movie is evidently based on a true story though some aspects of the film may have been fabricated.

Fonda announced in September of last year that she had non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, but told fans at the time she felt ‘lucky’ as it is ‘very treatable.’ 

Announcing her remission in a lengthy post to her website last month, Jane wrote: ‘I am feeling so blessed, so fortunate.

‘I thank all of you who prayed and sent good thoughts my way. I am confident that it played a role in the good news.’
