Mercy Mercy Me! Legendary actress Jane Fonda wishes she would have slept with music icon Marvin Gaye when she had the chance.
When talking to The New York Times, the 9 to 5 star shut down the question if Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara was her greatest regret she never had sex with. “No, I don’t think about him.”
Instead she said her biggest regret was the ‘Let’s Get It On’ singer Gaye. “He wanted to and I didn’t,” the actress told the outlet. “I was married to Tom Hayden. I was meeting a lot of performers to try to do concerts for Tom and the woman who was helping me do that introduced me to Marvin Gaye.”
New York Times’ Maureen Dowd joked about the ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ singers pickup line including “sexual healing,” Fonda jokingly said, “I needed some but he didn’t say that, no.”
The Grace and Frankie star mentioned that she “read, apparently he had my picture on his refrigerator. I didn’t find that out until later, after he was dead.”
When talking about her current love life, the Oscar winner says that she has “no interest” in dating right now. “I don’t have time,” she said. “I am fully complete with me and my children and my grandchildren and my friends. I don’t want any more romance. I don’t have time for it.”
The activist noted that no one propositions her anymore. “Zero,” she said. “No, and I’m not lonely. I’ve never been lonely. I’ve never been bored or lonely in my life.”
The 82-year-old legend is still looking fabulous, rocking a gray pixie cut these days. “I went gray at just the right moment,” she told the outlet. “I didn’t know Covid was coming along. I got tired of the chemicals and the time and the money to keep myself this particular color of blond, you know - enough already!”
She says that she did talk to the producers of her hit Netflix show Grace and Frankie before going gray, saying: “I want to go gray, but that would mean Grace is going to have to go gray, and they were all for it.”
The New York native also opened up about her time with various stars including Marlon Brando and Marilyn Monroe. When asked about her experience with Brando, whom she costarred with in the 1966 drama The Chase, Fonda seemed unimpressed with the late actor.
He was “disappointing,” she admitted. She did acknowledge his skills as an entertainer, calling him a “great actor.”
When asked about Monroe, the Monster-in-Law star confirmed that the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes actress was just as gorgeous in person as she was onscreen. “She glowed! There was a glow coming out of her that was unbelievable,” she said. “It came from her skin and her hair and her being. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
