If Jane is such 'a thoughtful and engaged listener', why she stopped answering the questions of her fans in her blog? As far as i remember, i saw that she was answering to each of them, but her answers were brief and not very warm unlike her gigantic autobiography. Recently, i went to her blog and the 'Talk to Jane' was simply gone.
So i guess Jane talked to people firstly, because she wanted to advertise her autobiography and to win others on her side. Well it worked as it seems, because some of them find her really cool. A star doesn't have the obligation to answer in all of her fans, but from the moment she has a blog and starts doing that, she has to have the elegance to give a good reason for stop doing that. What was Jane's reason? I guess she had other important things to do...again! Lol! Yes, she will save the world with her will.
In reality Jane is not uncool but she is not cool enough either. If you are cool enough, you don't need to make always a demonstration of yourself.
R37, if you reach Jane's age and you find her comment absolutely sincere, then bravo to you. I think you are much younger than Jane, that's why you find her comment fantastic. When you grow up, i guess you will find that old age is not the most sexually fulfilling age of all. That's just a fantasy of a good will. I believe that Jane didn't have bad intentions when she said that, but it was a rather frivolous statement.
Jane is eloquent and tries to be positive as a person but she is not so real. She just strives to be real in front of other people's eyes but she is still a narcissistic chameleon.
On the other hand, Faye, maybe is a bit crazy and act like it sometimes, but Faye is more honest in her heart and in reality more humble and sweet than dear Jane is. Ok, she had those terrible plastic surgeries, but it was not her fault that they didn't work out for her. People should stop judging so superficially. The fact that Dunaway's plastic surgeries didn't work out for her, doesn't mean that she is less mature or respectable that Jane Fonda. A year ago, i came across a very beautiful interview of Faye. She seemed so humble and honest and when i say humble i mean that she didn't fake to be humble. She seemed to be a person that was aware of her mistakes and she didn't try to analyze them, like Jane did. I found her approach more honest than Fonda's. With a few really touching words Faye made me feel more 'human' and 'warm' that Jane did with her 'speeches'.
They are both great actresses, but i think that Jane is not 'that' honest. She is more of a sensationalist. I appreciate some of her views but she is not 'that' right. She should stop preaching and trying to 'set an example for younger women'. God, it's so immature and crazy to say such thing!
