Well, Jane Fonda‘s middle name definitely isn’t “subtle!” During a guest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, Jan. 15 alongside her Grace and Frankie co-star Lily Tomlin, the Oscar-winning actress revealed her dream on-screen love scene would be with either Liam Neeson or Blake Shelton!
During the segment, host Ellen DeGeneres played a game with the two stars called “Jane and Lily [Don’t Give A F–k].” The premise of the game was for Ellen to ask the BFFs a series of questions — and one, in particular, caused Jane, 81, to blurt out an answer that not many would’ve expected.
“[A] person you’d like to do a love scene with?” Ellen inquired. Without hesitation, Jane shouted, “Liam Neeson!” causing the crowd to erupt in cheers and laughter before she added, “Or Blake Shelton!” But while Jane came up with an answer very quickly, Lily struggled and ultimately didn’t end up answering the question.
Even though Jane would be willing to do a love scene for TV, the fitness guru recently made it clear that her real love life is over. “I’m not dating anymore, but I did up until a couple of years ago,” Jane admitted to Extra in May 2018 following her 80th birthday. “I’ve closed up shop down there!”
The beauty’s last relationship was with music producer Richard Perry and their romance ultimately ended after eight years in January 2017. She has also been married three times in the past to director Roger Vadim, to politician Tom Hayden, and to media mogul Ted Turner. Though her marriages have all ended in divorce, it’s not the fear of heartbreak that has caused Jane to stay away from dating today — tt’s actually the complete opposite! “As I started getting older, I realized, I’m so happy!” Jane revealed during a 2012 interview with Katie Couric. “I didn’t expect this!”
And now, the political activist is only focused on her acting career and recently revealed she’s, frankly, just happy to still be alive. “I never pictured 30,” she admitted to People in December 2017. “I assumed I wouldn’t live very long and that I would die lonely and an addict of some sort. I didn’t think if I did live this long, that I would be vibrant and healthy and still working. I’m grateful.”
Season 5 of Grace and Frankie premieres on Netflix on Friday, Jan. 18!
