We need to talk about Jane Fonda’s tummy obsession 28



View Profile

Jane Fonda has never been one to shy away from doing things differently and in recent days the Grace and Frankie star has made a couple of bold statements, both involving a specific body part.

The former exercise-video queen was at the Los Angeles LGBT Centre Gala with her best friend Lily Tomlin, where she was honoured with the centre’s prestigious Vanguard Award in recognition for her decades of activism and projects that have impacted the LGBT community.

Larking about on the red carpet with fellow-honouree Miley Cyrus (daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus of Achy Breaky Heart fame), Ms Fonda planted a kiss on the young singer’s bare tummy, leaving behind a lipstick mark that young Ms Cyrus wore with great pride.

Ms Fonda was introduced by Lily Tomlin and spoke with passion about the similarities between her lifelong work for women’s rights and the struggles of the LGBT community for equal rights.

“None of us can rest on our victory laurels. We have to pay vigilant attention to each other’s movements and struggles. We have to learn from each other’s mistakes as well as victories. We have to support each other. We have the same opponents. We’re in this together. And one thing that we can all do is to support the passage of an equal rights amendment the will ban discrimination based on gender, sexual preference and sexual identity once and for all,” she said.

Ms Fonda earlier in the week wore a revealing white number that showed off her fishnet body stocking, underwear and tummy at the 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards, where she picked up a Supporting Actress award for her role in the upcoming film Youth. 

We’re not sure exactly what statement Ms Fonda is trying to make with this look, but you have to ten point for bravery and ten points for good form, considering she’s 77!

The new season of Grace and Frankie is currently filming – are you looking forward to it?

  1. Many years ago when halter necks and bare midriffs were the fashion I was disqulaified from entry into a sport club because I had a bare midriff – my companion however who had almost bare tits was told she could enter the club. That was in the 1970’s, so I guess we are still hung up on bare midriffs in 2015 – some things it seems dont change!

    • Your entitled to your opinion, but if you research & read her life
      Story & books you will find the contrary, she is amazing.

    • When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp communist political officer if I would be willing to meet with Jane Fonda. I said yes, for I would like to tell her about the real treatment we POWs received different from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by Jane Fonda, as “humane and lenient.” Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees with outstretched arms with a large amount of steel placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane till my arms dipped. I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda for a couple of hours after I was released. I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV. She did not answer me.” this website is American Marines http://www.26thmarines.org/janefonda.html

    • Really? So you should know “this amazing woman” caused the death of one POW and the severe beating of another……
      You do remember her don’t you!
      She was a traitor.
      She handed over to the Prison Gaurds the tiny notes given her via a handshake from American POWs and they were severely punished.
      You do re call she is American……
      I wouldn’t purchase anything this traitor wrote,

      You obviously admire her…….but there are thousands of us who remember Hanoi Jane and how she betrayed her country and POWs and was never called to account.

  4. Don’t give a flying F**k about her stomach. She is a traitor to her country & to the American P.O.W’s she betrayed in her “Visit” to Nth Vietnam during the Vietnam war. She will never walk away from what she did. R.I.H….Hanoi Jane.
