Jane Fonda’s still got it.

At 85 years old, the “Barbarella” beauty has a new movie out (“80 for Brady,” co-starring Sally Field, Lily Tomlin and Rita Moreno), is moving full steam ahead with her Fire Drill Fridays — and, after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in September, recently announced her cancer is in remission.

“I won,” Fonda quipped of the latter point at the launch of H&M Williamsburg’s Move Studio in New York Wednesday night, to cheers from the crowd.

Last year, the “Book Club” actress was named the face of the H&M Move campaign — a fitting gig considering her famous “Jane Fonda’s Workout” franchise, although during her Q&A, she admitted she wasn’t always big into breaking a sweat.

“I didn’t know that it was important to do ’til I was in my 30s. I had a ‘constant period’ all during school so that I couldn’t do gym — anything to get out of gym,” Fonda told press at the event.

“It wasn’t until my late 30s [or] early 40s that I started to actually become active … [and] life before I was active, it wasn’t nearly as good as when I started to move.”

“You’ve got to stay strong,” she said. “I have a grandson who’s 3 years old, and I can still pick him up. I mean, I have to bend my knees and, you know, it takes a long time to get him up there, but I can still pick him up. You want to be able to carry your own bags.”

Added Fonda, “You have to be able to, you know, make love. I don’t remember much [about that], but do I remember you need flexibility!”
