Screen legend Jane Fonda says “Everybody should be able to get married”

Screen legend Jane Fonda has commented on Australia’s marriage equality debate saying “Everyone should be able to get married.”

Fonda is currently staring in the TV series Grace and Frankie which is about two women who strike up a friendship when their husbands announce they are gay.

Fonda made her comment during an exclusive interview with Yahoo Be.

“Many of my friends are gay women and men, married with children, and those marriages are more stable
than most.” Fonda said, voicing her support for marriage equality in Australia.

The acting legend shows no signs of slowing down, alongside her role in Grace and Frankie, she also recently appeared in three seasons of Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom. 

Fonda’s career spans seven decades, in the 1960’s she appeared in many acclaimed films including Barbarella, Barefoot in the Park, Cat Ballou and They Shoot Hotses Don’t They. In the 1970’s she picked up the Best Actress Oscar for her work in Klute and Coming Home. In the 1980’s she delivered acclaimed performances in On Golden Pond, Nine to Five and Agnes of God. 

Fonda took a long break from acting, and didn’t appear in any films for 15 years. She returned to the screen in 2005 to appear alongside Jennifer Lopez in Monster in Law.
