85-year-old actress Jane Fonda said during comedian Heather McMahan's podcast "Absolutely Not" that she is not ready to date men over 20.
She spoke about this when asked about relationships at her age. “I’m ashamed to say this, but if I took a lover, he would have to be no more than 20 years old.”
The actress explained her preferences by saying that she “does not like mature skin.”
This interview went viral online and caused heated discussion. Some criticized the actress and were surprised, although others agreed with her views. Some took her words as a joke. "I hope you are not going to "cancel" Jane? “She’s funny,” writes one user.
Jane Fonda is known for her unusual views on relationships. For example, in 2018 she stated that she would never date again, and in 2021 she added that she simply had no desire to enter into a romantic relationship with anyone.
Last year, Fonda said she felt much younger at 84 than she did at 20." According to her, this is the result of a 70-year desire to “become young.”
