"The problem is that, like a man, I would want a younger man. Isn’t that awful? It’s a thing about skin. I would want a younger man, and I’m too vain," Fonda Said
Jane Fonda knows exactly what she wants and she isn't afraid to say it. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, the 83-year-old actor and activist opened up about what she's looking for in a relationship and her thoughts about men and sex, reported Buzzfeed.
“I don’t want to be in a relationship, a sexual relationship, again. 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," she explained. Jane does think she could "show up" for a relationship but says that the problem is that she would want a younger man. "The problem is that, like a man, I would want a younger man. Isn’t that awful? It’s a thing about skin. I would want a younger man, and I’m too vain," she added.
The actress says that her past marriages have made her realize that she is "not really capable" of intimacy. “It’s not them. 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," Jane said," reported Buzzfeed.
While the actress doesn't have any plans to get married in the future, it does sound like she knows what exactly she wants, and considering that she juggles between her activist work and starring in Grace and Frankie, love might just be on the back burner. If anything has to happen, it has to be someone who will take her down a new path. The actress concluded, “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. 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," reported Buzzfeed.
