Jane Fonda’s not afraid of real talk on marijuana.
The 77-year-old actress-activist says she still gets high, according to “The One and Only Jane Fonda,” a new interview in DuJour magazine.
“I’ll smoke pot every now and then,” Fonda told DuJour.
But given pot’s mind-altering qualities, Fonda doesn’t often combine cannabis with her trips to the movie theater.
“I cannot see a movie on pot,” she said in the interview. “The number of movies I’ve seen thinking, ‘This is probably the best I have ever seen,’ and then I’ll see it again sober and think, ‘What was I thinking?’”
What else is Fonda — a self-described “feminist, small-c Christian who is studying Buddhism” — up to lately? There was some great sex in her life recently, the article says.
Fonda is a woman of extremes. After leaving (former husband Ted) Turner, she was celibate for seven years. Then, at 74, she announced she was having the best sex of her life with music producer Richard Perry. She earned two Emmy nominations for her work on HBO’s The Newsroom. (With a single monologue about the hotness of Daniel Craig, Fonda put that show in her back pocket and walked away with it.) And yet she’s not relaxing into her third act so much as wrestling it to the ground, sometimes winning, sometimes struggling.
“It started maybe six or seven months ago,” she says. “I have to be very intentional about keeping myself grounded and centered. I can fly off and become scattered and lose confidence.”
