“The mass media doesn’t really deal with you after a certain age,” Fonda said. “I wanted to give a cultural face to older women because we’re left out.”
Fonda, who currently stars in the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie,” also talked about having her first onscreen kiss in 15 years on the new show.
“If someone had told me that at 77 I would be back in a thing called Netflix that’s not even television … and that I would have my first kiss at 77 since 15 years I would have said you were crazy,” Fonda said.
In another segment, Fonda played a game of Never Have I Ever with DeGeneres and made several juicy revelations. When asked if she had ever hooked up in the bathroom at a party, Fonda responded, “Do I have to tell the truth?”
Fonda also admitted to having made out with someone at least half her age, and to joining the mile high club.
“I was 50 years old,” Fonda said. “It was my fourth date with Ted Turner.”
