Jane Fonda

Hollywood icons Jane Fonda and Jack Nicholson will be inducted into the California Hall of Fame. The famous actors are joined on the list of 2008 inductees by musicians Dave Brubeck and Quincy Jones, fitness guru Jack LaLanne, sculptor Robert Graham and chef Alice Waters. They will all be honored at a ceremony in Sacramento on December 15th. Fonda’s induction comes nearly 30 years after her nomination to the California Arts Council was rejected by the State Senate due to her outspoken campaign against the Vietnam War. Photographer Dorothea Lange, architect Julia Morgan, scientist Linus Pauling and former Governor Leland Stanford will be inducted posthumously. The Hall of Fame was conceived in 2006 by Maria Shriver, the wife of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, to honor legendary individuals who have helped the state.
