London - Just six years ago she said she had never had such a "fulfilling" sex life. But Jane Fonda, 80, has revealed she is no longer swinging from the chandeliers.

In fact, she said she is no longer dating – and had "closed up shop down there".

Speaking at the premiere of her new film, Book Club, about four older women who experience a sexual awakening after reading racy novel Fifty Shades Of Grey, she said: "I am not dating any more, but I did until a couple of years ago. I’m 80. I have closed up shop down there.

"Nobody has to keep on being sexual later in life, it should be up to us to make the decision. I am 80 and it is only over when you decide it is going to be over." 

The two-time Oscar-winner – who dazzled on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere in a daring red suit – has never been shy about sharing intimate details of her love life.

Opening up about her satisfying sex life with music producer Richard Perry, in 2012 she said: "The only thing I have never known is true intimacy with a man. I absolutely wanted to discover that before dying.

"It has happened with Richard … At 74, I have never had such a fulfilling sex life."

Fonda and Perry, 75, split in January last year after eight years together.
