She later complained to ET Canada that the line of...

On October 25, Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem were guests on All In With Chris Hayes on MSNBC to discuss sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, as well as their own foundation, the Women's Media Center.

    Last week on BBC's "Hardtalk," actress Jane Fonda was asked by show host Stephen Sackur if inside her she had a "sense of regret" for her 1972 visit to North Vietnam at the height of the Vietnam War. Fonda denied having any regret about the visit itself and argued she had justifications for the trip. [Snip] The [only] part she said she had regretted was appearing with the anti-aircraft and looking that she was against American soldiers and "siding with the enemy," which she said wasn't the case.

    Jane Fonda regrets not speaking up earlier about Harvey Weinstein. The film star, who is also an active women's rights advocate, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Thursday that she "found out about Harvey about a year ago."

In the past week, multiple women have come forward accusing Weinstein of rape, assault and other misconduct. The movie producer denies the charges and released a statement earlier this week, through a representative. "Mr. Weinstein obviously can't...

    One day after actress Debra Messing revealed that she regretted going on Megyn Kelly's new NBC morning show, the embattled host managed to draw the ire of an even bigger Hollywood star. Megyn sat down with Oscar-winning screen icon Jane Fonda on Wednesday, and in an ill-advised and poorly convinced move, decided to ask the 79-year-old actress to detail the plastic surgery she has had done over the years. 'You, you've been an example to everyone, on how to age beautifully and with strength. And unapologetically,' began Megyn, nervously drawing out her question.
