Jane Fonda is one of the most celebrated actresses in Hollywood with a career spanning over six decades. Recently, she appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show, where she talked about some of her most iconic films. One of them was the 2005 romantic-comedy, ‘Monster-In-Law,’ in which she starred opposite Jennifer Lopez.
During the show, Fonda recalled the slapping scene in the film, in which she and Lopez had to slap each other. Fonda revealed that during one of the takes, Lopez’s diamond ring cut open her eyebrow, causing her injury. What surprised Fonda more was that Lopez never apologized for her mistake.
As a content writer, I find this story interesting. It shows that accidents can happen even during the filming of a movie, where everything seems perfect. It also highlights how important it is to apologize for one’s mistakes, even if they happen accidentally.
Apart from this, Fonda also talked about her experiences while filming ‘Barbarella,’ where she did a strip tease in space for the opening scene. She revealed that she hates being naked in front of anyone and had to get drunk to do the scene. Her then-husband, director Roger Vadim, had promised her that her private parts would be covered by the movie’s credits. While filming, a bat flew between her and the camera, which they didn’t realize until after seeing the rushes. Hence, they had to do the entire scene again the next day.
The stories that Jane Fonda shared on The Drew Barrymore Show are a testament to her long and successful career in Hollywood. They also provide insight into the behind-the-scenes experiences that we rarely get to see. It is always great to learn about an actor’s perspective on their iconic roles, and Jane Fonda has given us a glimpse of that.
