83-year-old Jane Fonda has always been distinguished by her frankness in conversations with reporters, whether it be an expression of citizenship or personal life. The actress’s new interview with Harper’s Bazaar was no exception. The star admitted that she regretted the lack of intimate moments in her life and even shared her sexual fantasies.
Lack of intimacy – I come to terms with it. I don’t want to have a relationship again, a sexual relationship. I have no such desire. I think that I am not capable of intimacy. It’s not about men. It’s about me. If a guy came up and said, “Come on, Fonda, show yourself,” I would run away in fear. Am I fantasizing? Yes, and here’s my fantasy.
I meet a professor or researcher, someone in the field who is truly capable of loving, cherishing a woman so that I can test myself and see if I can still. I think that maybe now I can, but the problem is that I want a younger man. Isn’t that awful? It’s about the skin. I want a younger man, but it’s in vain – admitted Jane.
The actress also explained why she thinks so.
I am happy that I will never again have to undress in front of anyone, even by candlelight. And if I had to – I mean, in my fantasy, a man is younger than me – it would be even more difficult. I’m sincere. I would like it to be untrue – Fonda noted self-critically.
The actress also spoke about her marriage to media mogul Ted Turner (they were married from 1991 to 2001).
In part, I start a relationship with a man because I feel that he can lead me on a new path. I am attracted to people who can teach me something and whose life is different from mine, so I give myself to it. First of all, I want to please him. This is a problem. When I married Ted … I mean, marrying Ted is like marrying 15 people!
You have to learn how to hunt, and I learned how to do it. It would help if you learned to fish, which I did. He liked it when I was sexily dressed, and I did so. Etc. Why be with Ted Turner if you’re not going to allow yourself to dive into his reality and learn from it? And I’m glad I did it, – said Jane.
