Jane Fonda recently gave an interview in which she denounced a French director who asked her to have sex with him so he could see what “orgasms” look like – this is what she responded.
As an actress known to the public for more than 60 years, it’s no surprise that Jane Fonda has a string of harrowing stories from her early years in Hollywood. She’s been very open about the ups and downs of her career, especially the eye-opening ones, like why she wasn’t a huge fan of Katharine Hepburn, and why she felt “lost” as a young woman. And even how it was. To swim with Michael Jackson.
In the last episode of Watch what’s happening live With Andy Cohen, Jane Fonda went as a guest to promote her new movie, Book Club: The Next ChapterWhen she finally breaks a story about French director René Clément who wanted to sleep with her while they were working on a movie together.
It comes just months after Jane revealed that, at the age of 85, she had no desire to have sex again.
She brings up the situation because Andy asked her to name a man in Hollywood that she had rejected during her long acting career, and to name him Renee. The actor and director worked together on the 1964 movie house of joy Jane has played alongside Alain Delon, Lola Albright, and Andrei Umansky.
I told Andy, “He wanted to sleep with me because he said the character had to have an orgasm in the movie and he needed to see what the orgasms were like.”
She says she cleverly avoided answering him directly by pretending not to understand French, the language he spoke in in the first place. And she continued: He said it in French and I pretended that I did not understand.
Andy was visibly shocked by the story, as the audience also screamed in rage after Jane told the upsetting story. She said to Andy: “I have stories for you, boy, but we don’t have time.”
She also separately told the New York Times that house of joy This is the first film I worked on in France. “I didn’t speak French very well at the time, and I didn’t really understand a lot of what was going on. The only people who really dug this movie, for whatever reason, were junkies. They came to me and gave me so much, but I’m so happy,” she said, referring to her ex. Roger Vadim. Because I did because it brought me to France and I met Roger. »
