fonda-j.jpgIn an interview to be aired on 60 Minutes this Sunday, Jane Fonda says that whilst she stands by her infamous 1972 trip to Vietnam, her decision to pose for pictures at an anti-aircraft gun site in North Vietnam was "the largest lapse of judgment that I can even imagine." Fonda ties the backlash to that trip to her iconic status as a part of American popular culture: "The image of Jane Fonda, Barbarella, Henry Fonda's daughter ... sitting on an enemy aircraft gun was a betrayal." There's a joke in there somewhere about Fonda's new movie, Monster-in-Law, but I think I'm too dense to make it.
