Jane Fonda has been honoured for her career at a star-studded event in Hollywood.

The 76-year-old Oscar-winner was presented with the Life Achievement Award by the American Film Institute.

A host of stars turned out to watch as Jane was celebrated, including Meryl Streep, Sally Field, Sandra Bullock, Lily Tomlin and Cameron Diaz.

Jeff Daniels also attended, and sang a song with the refrain "abs, butt and thighs", apparently referring to the star's exercise videos.

Wanda Sykes wore a Barbarella costume, referencing Jane's 1968 film, and was carried on stage by a man dressed as a winged angel.

Michael Douglas, Eva Longoria and Jane's brother Peter Fonda also spoke at the ceremony.

As she collected her award, Jane had some advice for the roomful of Hollywood celebrities, telling them: "Ask questions, stay curious. It's much more important to be interested than to be interesting."
