Jane Fonda makes surprising admission about dating rule at 85 which has angered a lot of people

85-year-old Jane Fonda revealed her shocking rule for dating, and it has angered a lot of people...


Jane Fonda is 85, but when it comes to dating, she would always choose someone younger to be by her side.

And as some would say she has the right to date whomever she wants, there are also those who slam her for her recent comment that if she were “to take a lover, he’d have to be 20.”

At her age, the famous actress is still as active as ever and serves as an inspiration for many young women who dream of following into her footsteps and making a name for themselves.

Of course, some might say that having Henry Fonda as a father, Jane had it easy, but the reality is that this incredible actress reached her celeb status thanks to her hard work and her undeniable talent.

Jane had her acting debut back in 1960 in the Broadway play There Was a Little Girl. For this performance, she earned herself her first Tony nomination. From that moment on, she landed plenty of roles and cemented her place under the Hollywood sky.


She’s also a cancer survivor. Last year, she took to Instagram to share with her fans that she had started chemo treatments six months ago and is dealing well.

“So, my dear friends, I have something personal I want to share. I’ve been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and have started chemo treatments,” the Grace and Frankie star wrote in her Instagram post. “This is a very treatable cancer,” she added, “so I feel very lucky.”

She further acknowledged her ‘lucky’ position because as she said, she realizes she’s privileged when it comes to having access to the best doctors and treatments. “I have health insurance and access to the best doctors and treatments. I realize, and it’s painful, that I am privileged in this,” she wrote.

“Almost every family in America has had to deal with cancer at one time or another and far too many don’t have access to the quality health care I am receiving and this is not right,” the actress added.

“Cancer is a teacher and I’m paying attention to the lessons it holds for me,” she wrote. “One thing it’s shown me already is the importance of community. Of growing and deepening one’s community so that we are not alone. And the cancer, along with my age – almost 85 – definitely teaches the importance of adapting to new realities.”

This wasn’t the first time Fonda to be battling cancer. Back in 2010, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and in 2018, she had a growth removed from her lips. Luckily, she’s now doing well.

Over the course of her life, Jane was married three times. In 1965, she married French filmmaker Roger Vadim. Their union lasted for three years. The couple share a daughter, Vanessa, who was born in September 1968.

She then wed politician and activist Tom Hayden (1973 to 1990) and with him welcomed her son Troy Garity, born July 1973.

Her third marriage, to media mogul Ted Turner, lasted until 2001.


Her relationship with record producer Richard Perry ended in 2017, after eight years of dating.

As of now, she’s single and happy.

“Marriage is f—ing hard!” she told People. “You have to understand nobody is perfect…And you have to decide: Can I live with this? Can we work with each other on this or is this a deal-breaker? Force yourself to notice if there are any red flags. My life would be very different if I’d noticed red flags.”

Recently, Jane appeared on the podcast Absolutely Not and spoke to comedian Heather McMahan about her love life. In it, the Barefoot in the Park actor said, “I’m ashamed to say this, but if I were to take a lover, he’d have to be 20.”

When asked, “why specifically 20?” the actress responded, “Because I don’t like old skin,” causing the host to break into laughter.

Pulling herself together, the comedian then said, “I’m right there with you. I’m doing everything I can to keep it fresh.”

Many of the fans praised her for her humor and talent. “Jane Fonda can say this lol she’s the goat,” one user quipped. “Y’all are not about to try and cancel Jane plz, she’s being funny,” another added.

Some online users took her statement as an invitation. “I’m here Jane,” one wrote.

“Dammit, why [do I have] to be 30?” another wrote. “So you’re telling me there’s a chance…” a third added.


However, there were some who weren’t at all impressed by the actress’ comment.

“What about if the 20-year-old doesn’t like old skin?” one cyberfan asked.

“20? I’m not even half her age and I think 20 is too young for my age,” a second user wrote.

Her fans stood by her side and said they couldn’t understand how some don’t get her sense of humor.

“Love Jane Fonda, she’s completely joking around,” someone wrote, while another added, “Y’all don’t know Jane Fonda jokes around?”


The thing is that Jane spoke of this in the past and said how she has a thing about skin so we aren’t certain if she was joking or she was telling her honest opinion.

Speaking with Harper’s Bazaar in 2021, she explained “…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.”
