Jane Fonda is an American actress. Daughter of the legendary HenryFonda, she was born in 1937, and followed her father into acting. After achieving a great deal of notability (as well as [[MsFanservice a large male fanbase]]) for her roles in films like ''CatBallou'', ''Theatre/BarefootInThePark'', ''{{Barbarella}}'' and ''Film/{{Klute}}'', for which she won an [[AcademyAward Oscar]], she pulled the PR gaffe to end all PR gaffes.

Fonda, like [[NewAgeRetroHippie many of her generation]], protested TheVietnamWar. However, going to Hanoi in 1972 and publicly supporting North Vietnam (including allowing herself to be photographed sitting on an AA gun) was a step too far for the US public, gaining her the nickname [[TokyoRose "Hanoi Jane"]]. She later apologised (for the photo, not her trip in general), but [[NeverLiveItDown many still see her as a traitor]]. It doesn't help that she also made broadcasts on Radio Hanoi that (whether intended to or not) were exploited by the North Vietnamese for propaganda purposes, and helped in using American [=POWs=] as props at a staged "press Conference" to "prove" to the world that [[BlatantLies the POWs were not being mistreated and were merely opportunistic liars]], and years after the war continued to denigrate the men who were held by Vietnam as "liars" when they came forward to describe the abuse doled out to them. (However, the second part of the story, that Fonda deliberately betrayed [=POWs=] who asked her to smuggle messages back home to the guards appears to be made up.)

Her career waned in the mid-'70s, but at the end of the decade, she had a successful comeback, winning her second Oscar for the Vietnam War film ''ComingHome''. In 1980, she had one of her greatest commercial successes with ''NineToFive''. In 1981, she appeared [[RealLifeRelative as Henry Fonda's daughter]] in ''On Golden Pond''.

In TheEighties, she released a series of very successful workout videos, popularizing aerobics. In 1990 she retired from filmmaking, but returned in 2005 with ''Film/MonsterInLaw''. In 2009 she appeared on Broadway again for the first time in 46 years, in ''33 Variations'', a play about a scholar of the work of LudwigVanBeethoven. Since 2012, she appears in a recurring role in the TV series ''Series/TheNewsroom''.

She was politically active in several causes; she supported [[CivilRightsMovement civil rights]], the feminist movement, and Native American rights, and opposed the Iraq War.

She won two Oscars and was nominated for five more.

There aren't many people who get a TakeThat aimed at them that involves cluster munitions. Then again, not many people have as big a {{Hatedom}} as Jane Fonda.
