Jane Fonda revealed her most ‘embarrassing’ habit as she sat down for an interview with a publication.
Fonda disclosed that even though it is shameful for her to admit, she still cares more about what men think of her appearance than women.
In a chat with Grazia Magazine. Jane said, “If I’m going to be on a Zoom meeting and I know that there’s going to be a man — even if I go to a doctor and it’s a guy — I mean, I feel ashamed even admitting this, but I pay a little extra attention to how I look than I do if it’s a woman. I became an adult in the ’50s and it’s just part of my DNA. I probably will feel that way on my death bed. I do it because I need to feel that they think I’m attractive. I don’t mean sexy. I mean just look good for my age.”
The Grace and Frankie alum concluded, “And then when I very first became a feminist I didn’t really pay that much attention to how I looked… because I thought that to be taken seriously I had to look like I didn’t care how I looked. A point came when I really became a feminist, not just theoretically in my head, but an embodied feminist, and I was confident in my feminism that I didn’t have to forgo looking good. You can look beautiful and still be a feminist.”
Fonda strongly believes in the concept of equity among genders.
