“I knew him pretty well. I went to his house a lot. He came over to my house a lot,” Jane Fonda recalled.
Jane Fonda shared a close bond with the late Michael Jackson, but it's something that not many knew of. The Grace and Frankie star took a short visit down memory lane and she spilled the beans about her friendship with the king of pop during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Fonda revealed how the 'Smooth Criminal' lived with her for a week, back in the '80s when she was making Golden Pond in New Hampshire, as per Us Weekly. “He slept on a mattress that he pulled out on the floor of the living room,” the Book Club actress reminisced to host Andy Cohen on Thursday, September 17. “I slept in the loft upstairs."
Speaking of Jackson, the Academy Award-winning Barbarella actress said he was “very touching” and a “very interesting character” when they were friends. “I knew him pretty well. I went to his house a lot. He came over to my house a lot,” Fonda recalled, also revealing that this was around the same time the popstar had released 'Bad' in 1987. “I skinny-dipped with him, how about that? Put that in your pipe and smoke it," quipped the actress. When a fan on the show asked Fonda about a photo of her with the 'Thriller' hitmaker in Studio 54, she admitted she wasn't a fan of the party life. “I didn’t like those scenes too much,” she said of the infamous club. “I only went twice, and I didn’t like it.”
Honestly, it looks like Jane Fonda is on a "spill-the-beans" spree as she said called famous musician Marvin Gaye "a great regret" sexually during an interview with The New York Times. Fonda revealed that Gaye was reportedly interested in sleeping with her, but since she was married to Tom Hayden at the time, she didn't encourage Gaye. “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,” she recalled. Sadly, she added that Gaye's pickup line didn't really use “sexual” healing in his approach. “I needed some but he didn’t say that, no,” Fonda revealed, adding that it was only after Gaye's death that she learned about him having a picture of her on his refrigerator.
Fonda, who has had quite an eventful life, swore off sex after hitting 80. Now 82, Fonda advised Drew Barrymore earlier this month that she is all for her indulging in an “affair or two” whenever she’s ready to get back in the zone. “I’m not closed for business,” Barrymore told Fonda in the same September episode of 'The Drew Barrymore Show'. Barrymore, who divorced Will Kopelman in 2016, told Fonda: “But I have been exactly in that mentality for the past five years, thinking I just don’t have the bandwidth, I don’t know if I’m willing to open [up,] I just can’t fit it in.” Fonda, however, plans to stay single. “I’m too old, so it’s very easy to swear off getting undressed … even in candlelight,” Fonda said. “Eek!”
