Forgotten beauties: 1960s Jane Fonda

Published: 9th Feb, 2009

Hey there, lonely space woman!


She’s had a few decent decades, Jane Fonda. There was the 1970s, when she really showed her acting chops in brilliant films like Klute and Coming Home – not to mention how she earned her hippy stripes by getting all Hanoi Jane about Vietnam. Then in the 1980s, she became the face and body of an international aerobics craze (which is still going, by the way), and probably introduced the world to legwarmers. But, the Jane Fonda that we fell in love with was the one we saw parading around the solar system in Barbarella. The tale of a young woman wearing leotards, we were totally transfixed, and at the last count, the film had been watched eight trillion times in a row. What a gal.

Of course, we can’t show guys pictures of an out-of-this-world supervixen without rustling up a little something for the dolls. Below is Tom Selleck.


You’re welcome.

    My first task as soon as I have invented timetravel is to go meet young Jane Fonda.
    From Barefoot In The Park to Cat Ballou, she was the best looking woman on the planet.
