We love this snap of Jane Fonda in a lot less Lycra than we’ve become accustomed to.

Jane is all dressed up in character as former First Lady Nancy Reagan for new film The Butler, which has been shooting in America since August. It’s based on the true story of a black butler from the south who worked in the White House for five administrations.

‘I’m told Nancy’s quite happy with the fact that I’m playing her,’ says Jane. ‘That makes me happy.’

Alan Rickman joins Jane as Ronald Reagan, while Forest Whitaker plays the butler, and Oprah Winfrey plays his wife.

We can’t wait to see it when it hits cinemas next year.
