Happy Birthday Jane Fonda

It's Jane Fonda's birthday! And to celebrate the life of such a wonderful actress here are 5 facts you may or may not have known about the woman...and maybe a few extra pictures :)

1.Her birth name is Lady Jayne Seymour Fonda.

2. Is the subject of an erroneous urban legend. When Vassar was a women's college, the story goes, Jane Fonda refused to wear the elegant white gloves and pearls that were the attire for the daily Tea in the Rose Parlor. When confronted, Fonda returned to the parlor wearing the gloves and the pearls, and nothing else.

3. The suicide of her socialite mother Frances Seymour Brokaw was kept from her as a teenager, and she was told that she'd died of heart failure. Household newspaper and magazine subscriptions were canceled, and the staff and student body of Fonda's high school were instructed not to discuss the incident. Fonda learned the truth months later while leafing through a movie magazine in art class.

4. Jane was mentioned on Sir Mix-A-Lot's 1992 hit single "Baby Got Back".

5. Jane now openly admits that she suffered from bulimia from age 13 to age 37. While modeling, she said she lived on cigarettes, coffee, speed, and strawberry yogurt.

Random Mix-a-Lot fact, unrelated to Miss Fonda and her birth: I saw Mix-a-Lot live once (with Subset, the band he briefly formed with the members of the Presidents of the United States of America) and then I saw him driving home after the show, right past my house, in a really sweet blue convertible.

Did you see her on (literally) Stephen Colbert? She's still a toe curler :-)

I really need to see Klute some time. I always heard the checking-her-watch scene is one of cinema's great moments.

Happy Birthday to Jane. Great pics of her. She's always been a babe.

I had an International Relations teacher that used to say she wasn't "fonda" Jane, because of the Hanoi Hannah stuff.

I, however, can overlook that, as Jane bared all in the opening credits of Barbarella, which produced a character who's name became a band. She's a decent actress, but her politics suck.

I am sure you know as well that it is the 40th anniversary of Barbarella here as well. There is a nice write up at Black Hole reviews:

And I am planning some little tribute at the Cafe. She certainly was a beautiful and confident female.

Jane as hottie cheerleader? yum.

and a nice chubby upskirt behind her ;)

Heff said...

I don't dig her politics either, but Barbarella was cool, i guess.

Steve Langton said...

A great actress. Belated birthday wishes to her.

Just to say at least one on topic item, yes, that cheerleader picture is quite saucily sweet. I've enjoyed passing over it as I scanned the page a couple of times now.

Erik Donald France said...

Fantastic shots, most of them new to me, for sure!

I'm a fan, politics and all.

Becca said...

Oh man thats cool! I saw Refrigerator Perry driving around in his car one day. I waved, he waved back it was a dorky, dorky moment.

I didn't but she is indeed still stunning in her age. I guess its all that aerobics.

And I haven't seen Klute yet either but it's on that list of movies I want to see!

You are so welcome! I am like the Buddha of Jane Fonda facts...boy that was somewhat offensive ;)

So glad you liked the pics! You always have the best pics up on your site!

I try to stray from the political stuff with Fonda, I just prefer to judge her on her acting wich is always a joy to watch. (hope I don't sound too vapid)

Barbarella is like my favorite movie of all time though! Sheer perfection!

Cool link! Thank you! I will certainly be stopping by the cafe, as I do often to check it out :)

That cheerleader pic is amazing! So it was just pulled into real life out of an Archie comic or something.

Barbarella is the bomb! (tee hee hee I'm so hep)

Yes such a great actress!

Glad it made you journey through the skullcave a bit more fun ;)

Glad to share! Especially when its someone as lovely as Jane!
