Jane Fonda: Sex gets better with age
Jane Fonda thinks sex gets better with age because you feel "braver" about getting intimate.
The 'Barbarella' star is glad her new Netflix series 'Grace and Frankie' gives a "cultural face to older women" and insists getting intimate is much better when you are older.
Speaking about her character on the show, she said: "I've had three lovers already in that series. I'm just so happy we're giving a cultural face to older women. [Sex is better] because, first of all, we're braver - what the heck to we have to lose? So my skin sags - so does his."
And the 79-year-old actress loves working on intimate scenes with Robert Redford and quipped that she "lived" for them.
Speaking at Venice Film Festival, she shared: "[I loved] that these films ['Barefoot in the Park' and 'Our Souls at Night'] bookend our careers ... In 'Barefoot in the Park', we played that young love just getting married and now we've played old people's love - and old people's sex ... I live for sex scenes with him."
Meanwhile, Jane previously admitted she wouldn't want to "be young again".
She said: "You could not pay me to be young again. I don't care how much money I was offered, I wouldn't do it. I didn't like being young at all. I actually felt I started to get old at seven. By the time I was 20, I hated how old I was then. At 30, I was ancient, I saw no future for myself.
"At 49, I said, 'I'm going down a dark hole, I can't be creative any more,' and I quit acting for almost 16 years. I was just so old... Then, after I turned 60, I began to understand who I was, and I became young again. Now I'm in sight of my 80th birthday and feeling pretty good about life!"
