Veteran actress Jane Fonda is planning to walk down the aisle for the fourth time next year after surviving a breast cancer scare, according to reports.

The Oscar winner is now cancer-free and the health crisis has prompted her to seal her romance with music producer Richard Perry, who supported Fonda throughout the traumatic experience.

The couple, which became engaged in 2009, was said to have called off its wed...

Jane Fonda
Jane Fonda turned her back on Hollywood for 15 years because the menopause left her feeling "so unhappy" she couldn't act.

The movie icon admits she couldn't act feeling as low as she did, so she decided to step out of the spotlight and concentrate on becoming an activist and a good wife to her then-husband, TV mogul Ted Turner.

In a candid TV chat with pal Oprah Winfrey, which aired on Wednesday, Fonda explained, "I felt so awful as a woman and I can't be creative if I feel bad, so I just said, 'I'm gonna leave Hollywood and be an environmental activist full time,' and then Ted came alon...

Ted Turner Says Jane Fonda's Faith Didn't Cause Split

November 8th, 2008 10:10am EST
Jane Fonda
NEW YORK (AP) - It wasn't religion that broke up his marriage to Jane Fonda, Ted Turner declares in a new memoir.

He says he was "upset" when he discovered his wife's "conversion," but "it wasn't because she had become Christian," the 69-year-old Turner writes in "Call Me Ted," which comes out next week. The Associated Press obtained an early copy.

He was upset because Fonda didn't talk to him about it.

Turner's 433-page book, co-authored with former Turner Broadcasting executive Bill Burke, reviews his loquacious, multi-pronged rise as yachtsman, baseball team owner, cable v...

Casting Directors Not Fonda Jane?

October 18th, 2008 7:00pm EDT
Jane Fonda
Movie veteran Jane Fonda can't find work because she refuses to play "dour" roles. The 70-year-old actress thought the parts would come flooding in after she played Jennifer Lopez's mother-in-law in the comedy Monster-In-Law - but all she has been offered is similar roles.

She tells More magazine the parts she's offered are "either dour, or less interesting versions of the shrewish mother-in-law."

Fonda admits she fears her movie career may be over: "I'm too old to produce, because it takes years. I can't. But I really do want to make movies."

Celebrity Offspring: Five Worth Watching

Will & Jaden Smith
Not all relatives should show up at the same office everyday, and not everyone wants to get into the family business. Yet when the perks include fame, big paychecks, and glamorous premieres, the choice seems a little easier to make.

Here are five we think are worth watching...
