Actress and activist Jane Fonda says she isn’t looking for another sexual relationship, but if she was, the 83-year-old icon would want a younger man.

“I don’t want to be in a relationship, a sexual relationship, again,” Fonda says in a cover story for Harper’s Bazaar.

“I don’t have that desire. Do I fantasize? Yes … That I meet a professor or a researcher, somebody in that line who is really capable of loving, of cherishing a woman, so that I could test myself and see if I could show up.

“I think maybe now I could, but the problem is that, like a man, I would want a younger man,” she says. “Isn’t that awful? It’s a thing about skin. I would want a younger man, and I’m too vain.”

Fonda, who has been married three times, says in retrospect, “What I’ve had to really think about is that I’m not really capable [of intimacy].”

“It’s not them,” she explains. “It’s me. If a guy had come along and said, ‘Come on, Fonda, show up,’ I would have run away scared. I was attracted to men who never would have done that to me because they couldn’t necessarily show up themselves. I didn’t know that at the time, but now I know.”

Fonda’s past marriages include French film director Roger Vadim, activist Tom Hayden, and media mogul and CNN founder Ted Turner.

“Part of the reason I get into a relationship with a man is because I feel that he can take me down a new path,” she says. “I’m attracted to people who can teach me things and whose lives are different from mine, and so I give myself over to that.”

When it came to Turner, she says “You have to learn how to hunt, so I did. You have to learn how to fly-fish, so I did. He liked me to dress sexy, so I did. And so forth. I wanted to. Why be with Ted Turner if you’re not going to allow yourself to be absorbed in his reality and learn from it? And I’m glad I did.”

The Academy Award winner and star of “Grace and Frankie,” has recently been engaged in climate change activism, getting arrested in 2019 on the steps of the US Capitol and most recently joining the Ojibwe Water Protectors in Minnesota to protest a pipeline through Indigenous land.
