Jane Fonda looks incredible posing for photographer Mario Sorrenti in the new Harper’s Bazaar,
The magazine’s reinvention issue features Fonda in a long-sleeved, black, fully sequined gown by Ralph Lauren, paired in a silver bob with bangs. She also wears another black sequined look by Valentino, and a vintage Mugler Archives jacket.
In an interview between Fonda and Durga Chew-Bose, everything from holding Biden accountable to acting and working with Katharine Hepburn are discussed..
She also discusses romantic relationships and said that she doesn’t want to have sex again.
“One of the painful things that I’ve realised by 80—I don’t even know how old I am—83, and single now. What I’ve had to really think about is that I’m not really capable [of intimacy]. It’s not them. It’s me.
I don’t want to be in a relationship, a sexual relationship, again. I don’t have that desire. Do I fantasize? Yes, here’s my fantasy. I’ll just put it out there. That I meet a professor or a researcher, somebody in that line who is really capable of loving, of cherishing a woman, so that I could test myself and see if I could show up.
I think maybe now I could, but the problem is that, like a man, I would want a younger man. Isn’t that awful? It’s a thing about skin. I would want a younger man, and I’m too vain.”
I’m very grateful that I don’t have to get naked in front of anybody again ever, even in candlelight. And if I did, I mean in my fantasy, the man is younger than me, so that would make it even harder.”
That’s what she said…
Anywho, the two-time Oscar winner HAS been married a few times before; to screenwriter Roger Vadim (’65 – ’73) to activist Tom Hayden (’73 – ’90) and to media mogul Ted Turner (’91 – ’01) She also dated record producer Richard Perry from 2009 until 2017.
As well as continuing her Fire Drill Fridays online to lobby for climate change legislation, Fonda is filming the seventh and final season of Grace and Frankie with Lily Tomlin.
