Jane Fonda Said ‘I Do’ 3 Times in Her Life! Meet the ‘Grace and Frankie’ Alum’s Ex-Husbands
Jane Fonda is known for her incredible career and inspiring activist work, but her world doesn’t revolve around entertainment and showbiz. Throughout the years of her decades-long run in Hollywood, the Grace and Frankie star gave love a shot with her three ex-husbands, Roger Vadim, Tom Hayden and Ted Turner.
The Barbarella actress said “I do” with her first husband, Roger, in 1965. The couple was together for three years before welcoming their only child, Vanessa Vadim, in September 1968. Although the two called it quits in 1973, Jane and the late French film director — who died in 2000 — remained on good terms.
“When I was married to Roger, one day, one of his friends said, ‘God, Jane, you’re just like us,'” the Oscar winner recalled to British Vogue in 2019. “And I took it as a compliment!”
Shortly after her divorce was finalized in 1973, Jane walked down the aisle, this time with Tom, that same year. Just months later in July, the Book Club star gave birth to the couple’s son, Troy Garity. They also later adopted their daughter, Mary Luana Williams, when she was 15 years old in 1982.
Jane and the late activist — who died in 2016 — enjoyed 17 years of marriage before going their separate ways in 1990.
The Barefoot in the Park star married for the third and final time in 1991 to Ted. Jane and the American media mogul were together for more than 10 years, although they never had any children. They ultimately split in 2001.
Although she stayed single for much of the next decade, Jane wasn’t ready to give up on love. Following her three nuptials, she entered a new relationship when she met music producer Richard Perry in 2009. Fans wondered if she would exchange vows for a fourth time as the couple seemed to be going strong, but the two ended their eight-year romance in 2017.
Following their split, it seemed the Jane Fonda’s Workout star was done dating.
“I’m not dating anymore, but I did up until a couple of years ago,” she told Extra in 2018. “I’ve closed up shop down there!”
While the Emmy Award winner told Page Six she wishes she would have “been better” at maintaining her former marriages, she has no interest in finding love again at this point in her life. “I don’t want to. See, I live by myself. I can watch whatever I want on TV,” she jokingly told the outlet in March 2021. “So I don’t ever want to be married again.”
