Jane Fonda smooches Miley Cyrus on the tummy

It has been years since Jane Fonda was a workout diva, but she still has a thing for tight abs.

This weekend at the 46th Annual Los Angeles LBGT Center Vanguard Awards Gala,  the 77-year-old actress and honoree planted a smooch on the taut tummy of singer Miley Cyrus.

This was just a week after Fonda bared her own belly in a cropped outfit from Balmain Paris.  She wore a mesh bodysuit underneath a cropped jacket and sheer ruffled skirt from the popular fashion house more recently associated with Kendall Jenner (Jenner walked the runway in the Balmain for H&M presentation last month).


Naturally, everyone got social on social media commenting about Fonda and her tummy and not everyone was very nice.

Some hated Fonda's outfit. Others acknowledged Fonda's fabulous figure, but gave the credit to plastic surgery instead of personal discipline.

Conventional fashion wisdom advises women of a certain age to avoid trends -- and cropped tops is definitely a trend -- but whatever opinions the public may have, Fonda is doing it her way.
