A family statement said he died at his home in Los Angeles on Friday of respiratory failure from lung cancer.
Fonda was part of a family of acting royalty - his father was Hollywood leading man Henry Fonda and his sister, Jane Fonda. Actress Bridget Fonda is his daughter.
In her tribute on Facebook, Jane Fonda said his heart was "flying free".
Leading Hollywood figures described him as a "beautiful soul" who "helped changed cinema".

Peter Fonda- actor, director, dearest man. Gentle, generous, wise soul. Seek Easy Rider, yes- but also seek The Hired Hand. He helped changed Cinema, but he also lived a life full of love and made this world better. pic.twitter.com/stAbjcm1wd— Guillermo del Toro (@RealGDT) August 17, 2019
