  Renowned actor and activist Jane Fonda, at 85, continues to captivate audiences with her bold statements and unapologetic approach to life. In a recent podcast interview with comedian Heather McMahan for her show Absolutely Not, Fonda shared an unexpected dating preference, sending ripples through social media.

In the TikTok clip shared by Dear Media, Fonda responds to McMahan’s question about her choice of a potential ‘lover.’ Without hesitation, she declares, “I’m ashamed to say this, but if I were to take a lover, he’d have to be 20.” When questioned further about her rationale, Fonda straightforwardly explains, “Because I don’t like old skin,” prompting laughter from McMahan and the production team.

The TikTok post has ignited a heated debate among social media users, with opinions split on Fonda’s dating preference. Some criticized her statement, drawing comparisons with gender double standards, while others defended Fonda’s right to express her personal preferences.

One user questioned, “What about if the 20-year-old doesn’t like old skin?” while another remarked, “I love Jane Fonda, but does she know men in their 30s and 40s don’t have old skin? That doesn’t happen till later. Same with women.”

However, a section of social media users defended Fonda, interpreting her comments as humorous and in line with her candid personality. One supporter noted, “People really don’t understand what a joke is! She’s funny,” while another urged, “Y’all can’t understand a joke.. Geez.”

Jane Fonda’s bold dating preference has certainly sparked conversations, highlighting societal perceptions of age and relationships. As social media remains abuzz with reactions, Fonda’s unique take on love continues to be a talking point.
