Jane Fonda

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have been watching Janes interviews from the last few days, and she seems to be really enjoying life. Isn't it time her bad wrap is washed away? How many times does the woman have to apologize, you know. Maybe I am wrong on this, and if so I am sure many will point that out. Voice your views on Jane and her career, is she a worthy actress, is she worthy to be liked by the American public again. Should time have healed old wounds at this point?

I can sum up all my feelings about Jane Fonda in three words: I don't care. Jon. (and for that matter, who cares?)

I have tranferred all of my Jane Fonda antipathy over to Sean Penn. It is so much more fun to hate him. Try it, you'll like it.

The wounds, anger and divisiveness of the Vietnam era are still very much alive. Just ask John Kerry.

I won't go there, I just left DC after seeing for the 4th time in my life my favorite cousins name on the wall, and I have forgiveness. My uncle, who served 3 tours, came home with malaria, was shot driving a MARTA bus 9 months after getting out of the VA, because he could not get another job, yet was never wounded as a Green Beret and watched 5 of his best friends die wihin 50 feet of him on 3 different occasions, has forgiven her.....so let us not go there for the "War Hero". Oh yeah, an edit, they both enlisted, for their COUNTRY.

I saw a bit of one of her interviews, on CNN I believe, and the part that struck me was when Jane Fonda said that she thought if Princess Diana were alive today, that Di could learn something from her book. My initial thought was, "what arrogance. Who the heck do you think you are that you could teach Princess Diana about how she should have lived her life." Other than that, I could care less about what she has to say. Bradford P.S. Oliver North was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Virginia and lost. I don't believe he's actually served as a Congressman.

I have a poster of Ms. Fonda dressed as an intergalactic skunk (from "Barbarella"). Since this represents the high point of her career, I think it's time to leave the silly woman alone.

There is so much misinformation about what Jane did and didn't do during the Vietnam War. Many people really are misinformed, even going as far to make up insane stories about just how anti-American she was. She sorta became a scapegoat for larger social problems of that time. She made an error in judgement in thumbing her nose at the Vets and supporting the Vietcong but who hasn't made judgement erros in life???...plus her promotion of anti-Establishment and anti-War activities set her apart from many of her contemporaries, which bothered many. Snopes.com has some good info about what's true and what's false. I don't think Barbella was the height of her career at all...that was the height of her career as a sex symbol, but in the 70s she won 2 Oscars and matured into an excellent actress IMO (and gave an excellent performance as a callgirl in Klute)....So many actresses fail to make that transition from sex symbol to an actress of merit (Sophia Loren, Racquel Welch come to mind) that Jane must be given her props for not only doing it, but showing them how it's done....and who could forget her personal reinvention where she basically was pioneered the popularity of workout videos in the 80s. She's shilling her new autobiography like crazy, maybe to the detriment of her already icy public image. I read at a recent book signing a man approached her and spit directly in her face.....Do we really need to know that Roger Vadim (who can't refute any of her claims as he is dead) forced her into *compromising* sexual situations nearly 40 years ago? No. But sex sells, and she is almost 70. She's well liked by what many would say is the liberal segment of the population and by many women as well, who view her as headstrong and independent (which she claims to somewhat dispute in the book, detailing her bouts with bulimia).

Her skin is so stretched out you could rip it off her face with a pencil eraser.
