Jane Fonda regrets turning down a little “sexual healing” from late R&B icon Marvin Gaye.
During a Q&A with The New York Times, the 82-year-old actress and activist spilled the beans on a few of the famous men she’s known over the years, as well as her biggest missed opportunity.
Interviewer Maureen Dowd opened “the confirm or deny” stretch of the interview by suggesting Fonda’s greatest regret was that she never had sex with Che Guevara, to which the star responded, “No, I don’t think about him. Who I do think about, and what is a great regret is Marvin Gaye.”
“He wanted to and I didn’t,” Fonda went on to explain. “I was married to Tom [Hayden]. 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.”
Asked if Gaye’s pickup line included the phrase “sexual healing,” Fonda responded, “I needed some but he didn’t say that, no.” Following Gaye’s 1984 passing, she discovered that the “What’s Going On” musician kept a photo of her on his refrigerator.
When asked about her time spent with “The Chase” co-star Marlon Brando, Fonda said, “Disappointing. But a great actor.” (It’s unclear if she’s referring to his between-the-sheets prowess with this line, as they’ve passed that portion of the Q&A; Dowd doesn’t press her for clarification.)
Fonda has been married three times, first to Roger Vadim from 1965 to 1973. She married second husband Hayden in 1973, separating in 1990. Finally, she wed Ted Turner in 1991, divorcing him in 2001. She most recently dated producer Richard Perry, from 2009-2017.
