JANE FONDA SAYS SHE MADE “UNFORGIVABLE MISTAKE”

News Max on April 3, 2013, reported that Jane Fonda admitted that she made one unforgivable mistake when she was in North Vietnam, and will go to her grave with this. Fonda said so on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Excerpts below…

The actress and activist made an infamous trip to North Vietnam in 1972 where she was photographed singing with members of the North Vietnamese military as she sat on an anti-aircraft gun.

She was criticized then — and ever since — and says she understands the anger.

She told OWN program “Oprah’s Master Class” that the event happened on the last day of her visit. She was tired, she said, and didn’t want to attend.

“I don’t know if I was set up or not,” she said. “I was an adult. I take responsibility for my actions.”

The soldiers sang a song and Fonda joined in with her “feeble Vietnamese.”

As everyone was laughing and singing, Fonda was led to a gun site, where she sat down.

“And I was laughing and clapping, and there were pictures taken.”

As she walked away, Fonda says she suddenly realized the pictures would be seen in the United States — and they would not look good.

The visit earned Fonda the nickname “Hanoi Jane,” particularly among U.S. veterans, who were outraged by photos of the young actress.
