Say it isn’t so, Jane. We’d enjoy watching a well-written romcom with Jane Fonda at 80+with .. some suave elder statesman (Sean Connery?). Why doesn’t Hollywood give us more senior citizens getting the love on?
I know, I know, it’s always got to be about the younger ones. They think we only want to see youth, no sagging or bagging. Fonda looks pretty darn good for 80 and there are male actors who clean up at that age.
Anyway, Jane Fonda is making news again, this time for telling more about her personal life and making some personal admissions like she could have slept with Marvin Gaye, but was married at the time and “fell in love” with Robert Redford. This further cements that actors and actresses do really fall in love in films. That chemistry we see and feel on the screen is sometimes not acting.
But sounds like Fonda is done with men.
“I’m not dating anymore, but I did up until a couple of years ago,” she told Extra in May 2018. “I’m 80. I’ve closed up shop down there!” The Grace and Frankie actress has however a history of long-term relationships, beginning with her first marriage to Roger Vadim in 1965.Jane Fonda’s Dating History
Fonda isn’t done with acting, just don’t ask her about plastic surgery like Megyn Kelly.
I’m not a fan of Fonda’s politics or activism, especially her activity during Vietnam, but, a little like Mike Tyson (see: The Mike Tyson Dilemma – does promoting those who’ve done bad in the past imply support for their misdeeds?) I have enjoyed some of her work.
Barbarella? Oh, yeah. It’s just so crazy and warped and different, well, it made me a fan. For those who just want to see Fonda nude, well, her first husband and the filmmaker made sure we got to see that in the dizzying opening scene that made Fonda so nervous she needed to get drunk on vodka.
Come on, screenwriters, get Fonda in some sexy 80s senior romcom. Crazy? lol, you must not have seen Barbarella yet. Go watch and return.
