Jane Fonda to Critics of Her Nancy Reagan Role: 'Get a Life'
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | 10 Apr 13 | Paul Bond

Posted on 04/10/2013 8:34:14 PM PDT by seanmerc

Lee Daniels' The Butler doesn't hit theaters until October, but the drama about the long-serving head butler at the White House already is being targeted by conservatives because of Jane Fonda's role as Nancy Reagan.

So far, backlash to The Weinstein Co. release is fairly muted -- bloggers have disparaged the casting, and a Facebook page is promoting a boycott -- but chatter about the liberal activist has picked up recently.

"The moviemakers are free to choose, but it seems like it was their way of giving people like me the middle finger," says Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and founder of the "Boycott Hanoi Jane Playing Nancy Reagan" page.

Fonda's response? "Get a life," she tells THR. "If he creates hoopla, it will cause more people to see the movie."

Maybe she should go to Best Korea and sit on an anti-aircraft gun.

Fonda needs to spend more time riding Buffalo on Ted’s ranches.

As a Vietnam vet I have plenty of ideas about HOW she should go. All of them take place at the hands of a vet.

Easy for her to say since she helped kill so many Americans.

I am so torn about this — since Alan Rickman, who I love, plays Reagan. Guess I’ll have to watch his edited bits om youtube later.

Turnabout is fair play. Imagine if conservatives made a direct-to-the-Internet “docu-drama” production about Hillary Clinton, starring Ann Coulter as Hillary? I can also imagine Jon Voight as Bill Clinton.

I think the funniest part would be based on the fact that Hillary is arrogant, abrasive, and foul-mouthed. Coulter could swear like Hillary, like a sailor, but in editing, the cuss words could be censored with ‘beeps’, which is just naturally comic.

There would be a scene of Bill and Hillary’s violent brawls, like the time she beaned Bill in the face with an ashtray, the time Bill tried to strangle Dick Morris, while Hillary tried to pull him off.

Just endless hilarity, because of their vast corruption, Bill’s psychopathology, political dirty tricks, hypocrisy, etc.

The could also likely get cameos from many other celebrity conservatives. The liberal Democrats would be in a stroke inducing froth about it.

How about people just don’t go see her movie. Fonda is on the older side and I don’t think she will generate a big box office.

Alan Rickman and Hanoi Jane playing Ronald and Nancy Reagan?

Even from just a casting viewpoint the traitor will stick out like a sore thumb. Her voice never changes, she will sound like Jane Fonda in a red dress. Alan Rickman has done some amazing stuff, transforming himself into different characters but I just don't know about Reagan. From Severus Snape to Ronald Reagan?

It's got to be an absolute nightmare for Nancy to know Jane Fonda is going to play her. Then again Ron jr probably requested it. If Jane Fonda had one tiny shred of decency she would have said no to the part.

I have a life, you Commie rodent! A life well spent serving the interests and needs of my family, our society, and our Beloved Nation.

To you I say, for once in your benighted existence, get some integrity. I know it's out of fashion in the circles in which you travel, but it would behoove you to do more to atone for your treason than the hollow "apology" you trotted out a few years ago.

The souls of my Fallen Brothers, the POW's in the Hanoi Hilton you betrayed, and the multitude of Vietnam Vets who have suffered years of gratuitous abuse as a result of your treasonous words and deeds demand it.

But of course, I'm not holding my breath.

Fonda is alive. Which proves that it is indeed possible to make a pact with Satan who has protected her & prospered her long poisonous years. Not myth, but reality.

But one day Old Nick will demand his due. As with Doctor Faustus.

Of all the terms of shame and disgrace, there is nothing lower, or more associated with dishonor and disgrace than that of being labeled to be a "TRAITOR".

There is nothing lower.

Nothing.

There is no way to LIE one's way out of it.

Bad people, even horrible people, can look down with repulsion and disgust at Hanoi Jane Fonda, and say that at least THEY are not a Traitor.

As a sidebar, Ms. Fonda is not an especially talented actress. She is not totally without ability (that would be Barbara Streisand), but nothing noteworthy. Catch her Oscar (Ha!) performance in Klute, and you'll see precisely what I mean. One doubts that endless coaching, scene cuts, and re-takes will reveal her upcoming performance to be anything above marginal. (I'll have to read about it. My conscience will not permit me to watch Hanoi Jane.)

Jane, I wanted a life, what I got was Vietnam.
Jane, you are only alive today because I valued
my life and freedom more than yours.

Don’t push your luck.

I would think it would have to involve a hole in the ground, a chair with rope, and thousands of thin streams of yellow liquid.

And, thousands of Vets.

There are reasons to have watched a Barbarella-aged Jane Fonda. Once. There is no reason I would ever watch a Jane Fonda movie, TV show, network, or anything else from the past 40 years. That fossil needs to disappear (I would never say “fade away” because that phrase is reserved for old soldiers and other honorable people).

Jane you ignorant ******.

You shoot at American airplanes with enemy antiaircraft gun and yuck it up with the enemy and wonder why Im sorry is not accepted. You just did not have Jimmy Carter white wash your records like John Kerry and think you are as good as him or your father. Do you have any idea what yelling at troops with a blow horn did? You told my brother not to go, go awol, he was on his way home so told him not to go home. Jane you would be better off to go back to North Vietnam and stay!

How would liberals ‘feel’ if the man who killed Matthew Shepard was caste in the role of Harvey Milk... then the movie casually trashed gays?

I suspect the ‘oh so sensitive’ would call it hateful.

Of course we didn’t do that... and wouldn’t - but Hollywood did - and yeah - elite Hollywood liberals are the haters.

Jane Fonda - you knew you were being used as a tool for hate - and you grabbed it. You are the person we think you are...

To you and all our veterans, THANKS so much for your service and sacrifice. More than I can say or show.

Re: Fonda's response of "Get a life. If he creates hoopla, it will cause more people to see the movie."

Think again, Jane. I cannot tell you how much music, how many movies or shows, I will not touch because of people like you.

Ironically, Jane, it frees plenty of time for me to have an even more full life. Heh.

Thank you. Being a Rickmaniac, I was concerned about sitting through the whole film to get to his part, after reading other articles on it. Alan’s a lefty, but not an obnoxious one.
