Three weddings are more than enough for Jane Fonda, who says she has no intentions of getting married again. The 83-year-old actress, who was previously married to Roger Vadim, Tom Hayden, and Ted Turner, made the declaration while opening up about her single life in an interview with Page Six. When asked whether there was anything she has not yet accomplished, Fonda joked that marriage was on her list.
"I'll tell you something that I haven't achieved, which is a successful marriage," she said, adding that she definitely did not want to walk down the aisle again.
"See I live by myself. I don't have any guy who doesn't want a woman who is willing to be angry and who doesn't want a woman who is willing to be angry and stand up," Fonda said. "I'm not threatening anybody. I can watch whatever I want on TV. So I don't ever want to be married again. But it's something I wish I'd been better at."
The "Monster In Law" star was first married to Vadim from 1965 to 1973, then to Hayden from 1973 to 1990 and finally Turner from 1991 to 2001. She also had several romances. In an interview with The New York Times last year, Fonda shared details about her romantic life and admitted she regretted not having sex with singer-songwriter Marvin Gaye.
The topic came about during a quick round of "Confirm or Deny" questions with Times reporter Maureen Dowd, who asked if her greatest regret was not having sex with Che Guevara.
"No, I don’t think about him. Who I do think about, and what is a great regret, is Marvin Gaye," Fonda said. "He wanted to and I didn’t. I was married to Tom [Hayden]."
The conversation then steered to Marlon Brando, who Fonda starred alongside in the 1966 drama "The Chase." According to the actress, Brando's charm and good looks did not work on her. Instead, she found him "disappointing," although she admitted he was a good actor.
