Born in New York City in 1937 to legendary screen star Henry Fonda and New York socialite Frances Seymour Brokaw, Jane Seymour Fonda was destined early to an uncommon and influential life in the limelight. Her interest in acting grew after meeting Lee Strasberg in 1958 and joining the Actors Studio. Her screen debut in Tall Story (1960) (directed by Logan) marked the beginning of a highly successful and respected acting career highlighted by two Academy Awards (for her performances in Klute (1971) and Coming Home (1978)) and five Oscar nominations (for Best Actress in They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969), Julia (1977), The Morning After (1986) and On Golden Pond (1981), which was the only film she made with her father). Her professional success contrasted with her personal life, which was often laden with scandal and controversy. Her appearance in several risqué movies (including Barbarella (1968), directed by her then-husband Roger Vadim) was followed by what was to become her most debated and controversial period: her espousal of anti-establishment causes and especially her anti-war activities during the Vietnam War. Her political involvement continued with fellow activist and husband Tom Hayden in the 1970s and early 1980s. In the 1980s she started the aerobic exercise craze with the publication of the "Jane Fonda's Workout Book". She and Hayden divorced, and she married broadcasting mogul Ted Turner in 1991.

Involvement in Vietnam War

During the Vietnam War, Jane Fonda actually flew to North Vietnam, praised Soviet support of the North Vietnamese, and protested against the American bombing of the Red River dikes. She also made radio broadcasts decrying the war and was photographed on anti-aircraft batteries used to shoot down American planes. She even visited American POWs, claimed that the POWs were not mistreated in captivity (though she only spoke with each POW long enough to ask him his name), and brought home letters from many POWs. She has since issued two apologies for being photographed on the anti-aircraft batteries, though not for her other activities.
