FONDA, Jane (Seymour) [*1937-?] -- American film actress

Contents:

Daughter of Henry Fonda ¤ and sister of Peter Fonda. ¤ First cast in pert and sexy roles, she later distinguished herself in dramatic parts, often as a tough and disillusioned woman. Regarded as one of the best actresses of her generation, she has occasionally left acting to pursue a radical, later liberal, political agenda. In 1971, she made a controversial trip to North Vietnam during the Vietnam War. In the 1980s she began promoting physical fitness through a series of popular videotapes.

Previously wed to Roger Vadim, Tom Hayden and Ted Turner. [Electric Library]

Regarding her misguided Hanoi adventure, this is a classic case of a bit of fame going to a person's head and deluding them into thinking that they are endowed with a deep wisdom that the whole world is keen to hear. Her qualifications as an actress obviously provided little in the way of political acumen -- or common sense.

Not content with just voicing her opinion, she travelled to North Vietnam in the middle of the war and posed for some photos, including some showing her manning anti-aircraft guns used to shoot down American aircraft. Posing for those photos was nothing short of treason.  -30-
