At 74, Jane Fonda 'never had such a fulfilling sex life'
"The only thing I have never known is true intimacy with a man," says Fonda, whose ex-husbands include director Roger Vadim (1965-1973), politician TomHayden (1973-1989) and media mogul Ted Turner (1991-2001). "I absolutely wanted to discover that before dying. It has happened with Richard. I feel totally secure with him. Often, when we make love, I see him as he was 30 years ago."
[quote]Often, when we make love, I see him as he was 30 years ago.
Well,I guess it all "Depends" on the motion of the ocean.
Oops, I crapped my pants!
Good..ahem...luck to her.
Thanks for sharing. Not
That's the most unerotic thing I've heard since the rumor that Sandra Bullock is into scat.
I hear ya Jane. Straight men leave a lot to be desired in love, so when you find one that's good, hang on!
I thought she was fucking her black chauffeur and was a born again Christian?
Some old-time stars just don't know when to shut up.
Sounds like Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli, Ethel Merman or Zsa Zsa Gabor saying "I found true love for the first time" after each marriage.
I knew Fonda had lost it when she recently said "I wish we could go back to the bi-partison days of Lyndon Johnson." She's right about LBJ's civil right acts, etc...but Fonda was a huge Johnson critic on Vietnam and rightly so.
Just - No.
No. With a side order of No.
Stop, Jane - my mind is going.
No. No. No. And a bit more No.
Either she's absolutely lying, or she had the world's worst sex life up to this point. Yes, you can have sex at 75, but no, things don't work the way they did under, say, 40 or even 50.
Has ever an actress ever had so much to say about herself with so little reason?
She's become the Warren Beatty of the Jane Fonda world...
Oh, and Jane? No, No, No - and NO!
"Jane Fonda continues to be a basketcase" is not news.
Does she have a movie coming out?
He must have a massive member.Obviously Jane has never looked at his face..
If you go back through the interviews, I bet she's said exactly the same thing about every relationship she's ever been in.
I say that because I'm almost certain I read it when she was with Ted Turner.
[quote]Sounds like Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli, Ethel Merman or Zsa Zsa Gabor saying "I found true love for the first time" after each marriage.
And millions of gay men.
All right for Miss Kitty
It must make her ex-husbands feel so great to know that she never felt any intimacy with them. What a charming woman.
r24, she's an infamously narcissistic woman. Even her children have told her as much.
Please tell me there is some way I can un-read that.
Can't wait for the BEE porno.
Of course she has never known true intimacy. She spent her life dating complete assholes.
Old Henry really did a number on her head, didn't he?
Shut the fuck up about Jane Fonda, you stupid asshole.
First off: 74-year-olds have sex and like it. Deal with it.
Secondly, Jane Fonda is no more or less narcissistic than any movie star. She's a screenstar, it's her job to vibrate at a high level of self-absorbed intensity, and to reflect as much light as possible.
Thirdly, I don't think Richard Perry is cute, but to hell with me, he's not sucking *my* dick.
I consider her a role model.
What R30 said. She's 74, looks like she's 54, and is open about her life. Kudos!
I'll say Good for the Old Girl, you sex negative weenies!
She's a doormat, always was.
You dumb boners. Do you think that when you are 74 you'll be saying "Well, I stopped having sex when I turned 50"?
They say staying sexually active as long as you can has many benefits. I believe it. I have no doubt I'll still want it/love it.
I won't be filming it for public viewing, so you can just relax.
If Henry Fonda had just told her she was pretty once or twice....we'd all have been spared her crap.
Age-ist motherfuckers, the lot of you.
You too will be wanting sex when you're 74, if you aren't already (74, I mean, not "wanting sex"), and just cross your lubricated little fingers that you'll look as good in a tight-fitting dress as Jane Fonda.
"You too will be wanting sex when you're 74, if you aren't already (74, I mean, not "wanting sex"), and just cross your lubricated little fingers that you'll look as good in a tight-fitting dress as Jane Fonda."
Oh, shut up, you idiot fangurl. Just because it makes you all hot and tingly to hear some old lady brag about her supposed great sex life doesn't mean other people have to feel the same way.
As for Jane Fonda...well, she just needs to SHUT UP. Shut up about everything. She seems rather desperate for attention; she's been that way her whole life. Never got over her "daddy issues", poor thing.
She doesn't look that great. She looks like a dried up twig in a tight dress.
She's also obviously desperate to continue being thought of a sex symbol, even at her advanced age. All that sex talk makes her seem pathetic, not sexy. I mean why should anybody CARE about whether or not she has a "fulfilling sex life?" Shut the fuck up, Jane! You're embarrassing yourself, and your children too, probably.
I kind of like how someone in her age group is speaking openly about making love. The manner in which she speaks of it leaves a hell of a lot to be desired, though.
Jane TMI Fonda.
I think part of the reason she never had full intimacy with her ex-husbands is because she was not happy herself. She would be first to admit this.
In any case, Fonda was out of the spotlight for decades, or at least during her marriage to Ted Turner. She's only been back for a few years, so I don't see how anyone can say that she's overexposed. I wish more actors would just go away for a decade or two.
I'm glad she's having great sex,and that she's happy, but what makes her think anyone wants to hear about it?
I'm waiting for the sexual fulfillment videos.
"Now place a hand mirror on the floor."
"With both hands on your walker"
"Squat AND one, two, three, four."
Henry Fonda was a complete motherfucker to his children. Kate Hepburn said he was "cold, cold, cold".
I'm 20 years younger than Fonda & believe me once your sugar walls become so very rice-paper-thin fucking feels like you're being raped! Jane and her little wig are full of shit !
I wouldn't let Richard Perry anywhere near my Queen Victoria with those ugly ass chompers....most accidents happen in the home.
[quote]She's a screenstar, it's her job to vibrate at a high level of self-absorbed intensity, and to reflect as much light as possible.
Jane & Suzanne Sommers are old broads desperate to be viewed as still fuckable.
When all those North Vietnamese soldiers gang banged me during my treasonous visit during the war...well it was definitely hot, but it just didn't feel....intimate.
Leave Jane Fonda alone.
She was right about Vietnam.
She was amazing in THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY, and her performance in KLUTE is one of the great works of art of the second half of the 20th century. Go ahead, "Mary" me, but I'm right.
Okay, so what, she's a privileged white girl who has always, always had money and who doesn't seem to know anything about herself, despite her paradoxically quite sophisticated ability to be endlessly articulate about her life.
Whatever, she's an ACTOR. And a MOVIE STAR. Hello? They're not like you and me.
Sexy Jane.. in the 60's
clip from Vadim's THE GAME IS OVER (La Curee)
Agree she was amazing in THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY? and KLUTE. I would also add her performance in the TV movie DOLL MAKER.
Hell, I loved her sex kitten period too in comedies ANY WEDNESDAY and BAREFOOT IN THE PARK and crap like Preminger's HURRY SUNDOWN.
I'm hung like a horse, Jane, suck it NOW!
What does old tuna smell like?
"Leave Jane Fonda alone."
It's hard to "leave someone alone" when that someone is running her big fat mouth about her supposedly great sex life. If she wants people to live her alone she should just shut up...about EVERYTHING.
[quote]Some old-time stars just don't know when to shut up.
Exactly and what was that with Fonda and Joy Behar making out on The View?
No man (aka "str8 guy") is interested in any fish over 40 unless there is some $$$$$ in the deal.
Her laboratory team is formulating Great Sex at 70 nutrient capsules with free lubricating lotion. It will debut online after Labor Day for the low introductory price of $39.95. Shipping and handling is $5.95.
Your misogyny is showing.
Jesus, you guys/girls need therapy to deal with your Mommy issues.
Do you think straight people don't talk about queers the same vile way you all talk about women?
In 1982 Jane fonda entertained the Israeli troops during the Sabra and Shatila massacre of the Palestinians in Beirut. That's why she has such a fulfilling sex life.
I see ageism and sexism isn't contained to the Madonna threads.
We were not aware of that, r64.
If what you say is true then we wish that something very bad happens to Jane and that she burns in hell!
I once read and heard by many, that Jane is one woman who is completely nuts!
This woman is making up a whole lot of BS as usual. Now its about her sex life. She is voicing to everyone that her sex life is amazing and the very best.Its a dead give away its just the opposite. Here is an example, the lunatic Kathy Lee Gifford used to say to everyone, Frank and I have such a great marriage on and on. Then Frank got caught with a bimbo in a hotel room on the cover of the tabloids.Usually when people keep their personal intimate information to themselves and confidential, 9 out of 10 they are the ones who are usually having terrific personal lives in almost every way. They don't have to go out of their way to prove and convince anything to anyone . They just live their lives.
BTW, I totally believe that seniors can and do have great sex lives. I just think this senior isn't ,and she has a lot of mental issues.
Congratulations Jane. I am wishing you immense happiness with your latest love!
R67, it is quite true. Only Robert Fisk dared to print it. Isn't it ironic that Hanoi Jane turned out to be our #1 Nazi? Several years ago the Toronto Film Festival made Tel Aviv a sister city and Jane Fonda signed a petition AGAINST it! But then she withdrew her name!! She can't seem to get it right!
Jane Fonda is an example of why I could never live in a retirement community.
Old people love to talk about two things: their aches and pains and sex. Yes, old ladies joke about sex constantly.
All of this talk is always unsolicited and pushed on the listener. Just like parents who go into detail about their kids.
Oddly, for all of her political posturing, Jane is very apolitical. She has excellent interpersonal skills and cares deeply about people. Because she is a child of the sixties, she misinterpreted her empathy and wrongly transferred it to politics. Big mistake.
Jane Fonda cares about sexually abused children, healthy families, love, and society. However, she will never be a 'normal' person due to her mother's suicide. This has skewed her political meanderings and tainted her reputation.
She should have always just stuck to running an orphanage or fundraising.
her mother committed suicide

Unlike most on this thread who just like to shit on old people, you make an interesting point.
I'm not sure if it's old people or just old women.
I always thought she pinged and was shocked to hear that she regretted her lesbian experiences. And I'm not completely buying it.
Oh please R71, Jane doesn't give a rat's ass about any cause, and she is a major phony! She only does it for publicity and at times she does things to shock public to get attention because she is an attention whore!
When Susielee was on DL, Susielee said she went to interview Jane. She didn't tell Jane who her father was, and that Suiselee knew Jane's father. She said Jane treated her like dirt, and Jane acted like the typical rich girl snob to her because she thought Susielee was just a nobody. When the interview was done, Suielee said btw, my father is actor Kurt Kasznar, and I know you father very well. Jane's mouth dropped to the floor and right away Jane acted differently. Jane said to her, look I didn't mean what I said ,and the way I've acted. Susilee said sorry too late. Everything you said, and did is going in my column .
Also, read the book by John Gilmore's autobiography called "Hollywood Laid Bare" its an excellent book. He said back in the 50's he was a struggling actor and he had bit parts in films like "Rebel Without a Cause" and a couple of others. He said he didn't make it as an actor,and he eventually decided to move on to other things. One of the many interesting things he mentions about the various famous people he met was Jane's nasty behavior. He said he once ate in the studio's cafeteria,and Jane was sitting there with Tony Perkins.he said hello to her, and she made a remark about him. He said she was such a major snob to the point that Tony Perkins's face turned red with embarrassment. The author said Jane thought he was beneath her because he was a bit actor. Eventually he found his place in society as a writer ,and he is very happy.
People change, R75. You are talking about Jane Fonda from 50 years ago. Besides, she admits to being very insecure as a young woman, something she expressed by being cool and detached.
BTW, I don't know why people still hang on to the belief that Jane is a Born Again Christian. It was a rumor that was started after she divorced Ted. She put the whole thing on to piss off Ted who could not stand Born Again Christians that's all. Besides, there is not a hint of her acting like Christian. The woman is a major liberal who doesn't apologize for anything she has ever done in her life. And if she does, its to somehow benefit her.
Jane, who is a well known sizemologist, had to pay $$millions$$ in alimony to her horse-hung ex-husband Tom Haydan.
A fish past 40 has to pay if she wants a hot hung number.
You misogynist pigs should not be allowed to talk about women.
Shut the fuck up.
could anyone fuck up as much as jane fonda
She, probably, has a much fulfilling life than you do, R80.
[quote]"Often, when we make love, I see him as he was 30 years ago."
Is this her way of quietly slipping in an Alzheimer's announcement so it won't make headlines?
Let me know when she apologizes for her treasonous acts during the Vietnam War and then maybe I'll give a shit what she says. But probably not.
R83, perhaps that shit you have running down your chin has accidentally been snotted into your sinuses and gone to your brain. We can hope.
If you are attempting to rewrite history and act as if freedom of speech is treasonous as it applies to an unpopular military action against which the majority of Americans stood, you are failing. Of course Fonda was, and likely still is, an idiot in her own way. But don't play "shut up because otherwise the troops we are killing for nothing will have died for nothing" here.
Snort hard, you cunt. I hope there are prions in it.
Do you think she wears her Barbarella costume to bed to get Dick in the mood? Or would that serve the opposite purpose?
She used to get gang fucked at Yale and Princeton in the late 50s.
is it true that she has a sex tape with ted turner or is that a myth?
If there is, you sure as hell won't see Robert Osborne introducing it on TCM anytime soon.
My mother was a narcissist and had borderline personality disorder. I can barely watch Jane Fonda in interviews because she reminds me of my mother. I'm a trained psychologist, but I know it doesn't take a professional to figure that one out.
It isn't a "rumor" that Jane's a born-again r77, she's admitted it. She's very impressionable, she had some neighbors living down south who were born-agains and they got her into it. She dove into it head first like she does all her fads like aerobicizing. She is probably still liberal for a born-again, but it does make her look like a ninny to so easily adopt whatever the people surrounding her are into.
Yup, making such a comment makes her more than an easy target on DL. I love Jane- her master class on Oprah's network was facinating. I love how she has given herself to those with less than her all her life- including the larger part of her fortune.
So if Jane is having great sex at 74- well yeah, she can keep it to herself. On the other hand- if she can do it, then all you blueballs and at home Internet bitter queens who have sex once a year should take heart. Most people who throw rocks at people enjoying themselves are unhappy- as this thread demonstrates. Most people who are having good sex lives will just smile when she says stuff like this.
Has she apologized yet?
I seriously doubt that Jane Fonda considers herself "old" or even a senior citizen. In her mind, she's still Barbarella, which is why she still yammers about her sex life and uses plastic surgery (she's had a LOT done) to maintain an image of eternal youth. It's amazing that after all these years she's still incredibly insecure, still whining about the past. Will she ever grow up? I don't think so.
Charlie's right, and poor R49/51 is probably Exhibit A. OTOH, there is a fine line between being open and oversharing.
I like Jane because she never gives up. Plus, she really looks amazing. If she has a great relationship at this point, it is because she earned it.
Jane is a fruitcake but she alright.
Jane is a fruitcake but she is alright.
She got to fuck Alain Delon and James Franciscus, had an open marriage with Roger Vadim, and shagged so many guys she lost count. And all she was looking for was "true intimacy with a man". LOL yeah whatever.
[quote]Damn, he could give her a gummer
She can have one of mine.
Jane Fonda also fucked other women with her ex hubby Roger Vadim. She said she did that because Vadim wanted that, poor Jane, what a victim...
Lol Jane, come on! You are a great actress anyway, and an interesting nutjob. Cheers Jane!
I hope to be as fabulous as Jane at age 74.
Has she apologized yet?
Sex-Haver Jane Fonda Is Writing a Kids’ Sex Ed Book
R89 so you are a clinical psycologist and you can diagnose BPD by watching Jane Fonda on a TV interview? I doubt it. And I strongly doubt Jane Fonda has BPD.
OMG. This is the funniest thread in forevah! Seriously, it's threads like this that remind why I still continue to subscribe to the DL.
I *heart* r30 and r54 which isn't to say that I disagree with some of what's already been posted.
Fonda has always been a notorious cause-jumper. I remember in the 70s, for a brief fashionable while, she was going to save American Indians. To be fair,however, she wasn't the only one to jump on that buggywagon.
I adore her work; nevertheless I find it very easy to believe that her cheese is off the cracker.
Della, actually R104 Jane Fonda in the 1960s and 70s was a very effective advocate for GIs in Vietnam and in particular POWs. Were you old enough to know? She also has been more recently a very effective advocate for teenage girls in Atlanta around the issue of teen pregancy and maternal care. In both cases and others she has put her money (millions) where her mouth is as well. No small thing.
Do you think she is crazy?
Jane is a doormat, a narcissist and a compulsive liar.
She was bulimic when she made her massively popular exercise videos. The whole thing was a fraud.
She goes on about body image issues and yet gets plastic surgery at a whim. She now looks like a cross between Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Burnett.
Her marriage with Ted Turner was a complete farce. She knew he was seeing other women.
A total fake.
My mum worships her, unfortunately because she shares some personality characteristics with her (including unabashed outright lying, gullibility, a nagging need for some sort of vaguely defined "approval" from frankly dubious persons - arising from a sense of deep self-loathing - and, eating disorders) . For my part, I always thought she was a desperate show-off. When I read about the Vadim marriage, I thought she was a pretty girl at the time, and didn't need to do any of that. Then again, I wonder how much is true and how much has been sensationalized. Whatever, it must be hard being her.
She's been actively bisexual going back to the 60's. Tried to seduce her stepmother into a foursome. On-again, off-again affair with Michele Philips. Admitted to preferring women over "any" of her husbands:
One friend recalls that Jane often confided that she’d enjoyed sleeping with girls since she was at boarding school. Even when sex wasn’t involved, she always forged intense female friendships.
At primary school, her best friend was a tomboy called Sue Sally Jones, who played professional polo — then not open to women — for 20 years, disguised as a man. Jane has carried a photo of Sue Sally with her throughout her life.
Another intimate friend was the petite and intense Canadian actress Madeleine Sherwood. When the two women starred in a Broadway play — with Madeleine playing Jane’s mother — they were often seen holding hands backstage.
Once, during a performance, Madeleine kissed her full on the mouth.
The director objected, saying: ‘A mother doesn’t kiss a daughter on the mouth.’
Madeleine recalls: ‘It was a gentle, loving kiss. We didn’t slobber.’
Rumours about Jane’s sexuality surfaced again in 1970, during an anti-war road trip across the States with her French friend, Elisabeth Vailland. They shared a curious bond: like Jane, Elisabeth had also procured women for her late husband and indulged in threesomes.
When Elisabeth asked if she enjoyed being with other women, Jane said she thought she did — ‘because I liked having an up-close view of the varied ways women express passion’.
There was something about performing rituals of domination and submission that made her feel more real, she added.
She had a big ass when she was young. I bet its flat now.
There's a kind of Ben Gay smella

R110 so was Sue Sally JFo's "Julia?"
Which Pointer Sister did Richard Perry get pregnant?
All of them, Katie.
That movie where her 74 year old tits fell out of her robe, bombed.
I'm with you, r100. She gives me hope.
She's Spanx from chest to knees.
Damn, she did have a big, beautiful ass.
Here is a better link:
It's not Jane Fonda I feel sorry for- it's a lot of the posters on this thread!
[quote]"The only thing I have never known is true intimacy with a man," says Fonda
Yes, this could be because of them, but also because of her. It takes two to tango!
It could also mean she has experienced true intimacy... with a woman!
Wasn't Kate Hepburn in her 70s when she was in 'On Golden Pond'? And would she have won the role of America's favorite fantasy grandma if she'd been blathering in the press about her lusty sex life?
R124 see R113
"But all the self-flagellation leaves something out: Fonda’s obsession with women. Whatever she may say, Fonda simply cannot convince a reader that she prizes male over female every time. She may not have liked her mother much, but the rest of her story is full of respect and admiration — both intellectual and physical — for other women, and much of it sounds more authentic than her affection for men. As a teenager Fonda notices Greta Garbo’s “healthy and athletic” body; she comments that friend Elisabeth Vaillard “was handsome in a Georgia O’Keeffe way,” and describes her producing partner Paula Weinstein as “a tall brunette with sexy brown eyes.” She is full of love for her onetime stepmother Susan Blanchard, for friend Brooke Hayward, for Signoret, and for Dot, her daughter’s nanny. She mysteriously points out to Hayden that a baby sitter is sexy (he promptly initiates an affair). And hilariously, in the chapters about the unwanted threesomes with Vadim, Fonda writes: “I’ll tell you what I did enjoy: the mornings after, when Vadim was gone and the woman and I would linger over our coffee and talk.”
Whether or not Fonda has lesbian impulses — she denies the rumors that she and Vaillard were lovers — her obvious desire to surround herself with beautiful, compelling women belies her claim that she played only to the guys. Fonda may have seen herself as a man-pleaser, but her story makes it clear that it was often other women who pleased her best."
How is seeing someone the way he was 30 years ago qualify as "true intimacy" in anything other than a Hollywood youth-obsessed screed?
She says that about every boyfriend.
I wonder about people like Fonda. Like, do any of them live in houses they bought in 1966 for $75,0000?
Why did R113 have a burning desire to bump this old thread?
Are you insane, R20, or just dumb? A "massive member" is not what a 76 year old woman wants.
She has trained him to stay on his knees. And Richard Perry is such fug, that's a good thing in more than one way.
Because Jane is still making headlines about her confused sex life i.e. she's a lesbian
"why Jane Fonda has awful taste in men"
Jane is a goddess. Aged to perfection, even WITH the plastic surgery. A testament to aging. Let her talk about her sex life or whatever else she wants. PLENTY of people want to hear what she has to say, me included. I find her fascinating. Then again, I am not an ageist gay man. Gay man, yes. Misogynist, no. Ageist? Hell no.
She was always a damned good actress who just got better and better. BORN to be a star. Watch her in Walk on the Wild Side (1962) to see the early Jane just jump off right the screen. You could see that she was going to be a big star. Fucked up? Nope, just human. With battle scars. A dysfunctional father and a suicidal mother. And honest about it all. Screwed up priorities in her younger years but who hasn't got them? She's made plenty of mistakes, made amends and done her pennance. She OWNS her shit, which is far more than many people do, including, most likely, many posters right here in this little thread. She intimidates some men but it is all about THEM, not her. Oh, she pushes buttons. She SO pushes buttons. And insecure gay men? She pushes them really hard!
[quote]I find her fascinating
Jane admires Kim Kardashian
Thanks R136- people like Fonda really do enrich the world- she is human, and her honesty and intentions for the good are inspiring. Jane is not one to sit back and give up like so many want on this thread, I suppose because they have.
(And she was essentially right about everything re Vietnam- on of the biggest disasters in American history- a war that killed 60 thousand or so Americans and millions of Vietnamese- a country that never posed any risk to the US, ever- and as soon as we tucked our tail and ran- they turned just as hard on their supposed allies- China and the Soviet Union.)
She claims her bipolar mother had NINE abortions before giving birth to Jane.
And she thought being inside Vietnam was dangerous.
