US actress Jane Fonda, 83, is to be honoured with a lifetime achievement award at next month’s Golden Globes.

“Her undeniable talent has gained her the highest level of recognition,” said the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

“While her professional life has taken many turns, her unwavering commitment to evoking change has remained.”

Fonda who has had a glittering acting career, spanning six decades, made her debut in 1960, later becoming one of the brightest Hollywood stars with films like Barbarella, Nine to Five and On Golden Pond.

The HFPA said she would be given the Cecil B deMille Award at the annual ceremony in Beverly Hills, California, on 28 February.

Her most recent performance was in the Netflix comedy series Grace and Frankie.

The Oscar-winning actress is also well known as a political activist, most recently as a campaigner against climate change.

In 2016, she spent Thanksgiving among the protesters at Standing Rock, demonstrating against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
