The radically liberal Hollywood star Jane Fonda is speaking out against her fellow actress Jennifer Lopez, saying that she has “concern” over her public displays of affection (PDA) with her husband Ben Affleck.

Fonda’s ‘Concern’ For Lopez And Affleck

Fonda, 86, voiced her concern while appearing in the 54 year-old Lopez’s new Amazon Prime movie This Is Me … Now: A Love Story, which accompanies Lopez’s ninth studio album, “This Is Me … Now.”

“I want you to know that I don’t entirely know why, but I feel invested in you and Ben, and I really want this to work,” Fonda said, according to Variety.

“However, this is my concern,” she added. “Like, it feels too much like you’re trying to prove something instead of just living it. You know, every other photograph is the two of you kissing and the two of you hugging.”

Lopez, however, did not let this faze her.

“That’s just us living our life,” she said in response.

Not stopping there, Fonda proceeded to say that she was worried about how sad Affleck looked in paparazzi photos while attending the 2023 Grammy Awards with Lopez.

“He looks unhappy and I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, what’s happening?’” Fonda lamented.

“Nothing,” Lopez fired back. “He was like, ‘I’ve become the symbol of the beleaguered man.’”

Fonda made it clear to Lopez’s manager Benny Medina that she is strangely invested in the singer’s marriage to Affleck.

“I believe that everyone in the entire world is pulling for this relationship and this love,” Fonda told Medina. “And the idea of how you present that is so sacrosanct, so important. It should be handled in a way that you aren’t overly flaunting it, so much so that it creates any form of criticism or resentment.”

Fonda And Lopez’s History

Fonda and Lopez met back in 2005 when they starred together in the romantic comedy Monster-in-Law, which featured an iconic scene that saw them slapping each other. When asked about this scene in an interview last week, however, Fonda made it clear that she is still holding a grudge against Lopez for what she claims happened during filming.

“The thing that comes to mind right away is we have a slapping scene. I slap her, she slaps me. … Well Jennifer — as per Jennifer — she had this enormous diamond ring,” said Fonda. “And so, when she slapped me one of the times, it cut open across my eye, my eyebrow.”

“She’s never apologized,” the woman who was nicknamed Hanoi Jane during the Vietnam War added.

Lopez Sounds Off

Lopez, 53, remembered the scene differently when she reacted to it in a video posted to her YouTube channel back in 2019. In this video, Lopez described the scene as being “one of the most fun scenes I’ve ever done.”

“She really really went for it, and so did I, and then I punched her in the eye by mistake — right there — ouch,” Lopez said. “We talked about how we were going to do this over and over again. I was so afraid to hit Jane Fonda in the face or hurt her in any way. She was so brazen and [said] like, ‘Just hit me, don’t worry about it.’”

Lopez recalled saying “I don’t want to hurt you,” and then “the next thing you know [Fonda] really went for it on one of those slaps.”

“The scene took on a life of its own,” she added. “I just remember afterwards, Jane had a blood blister right at the top of her eye. My nail like went up into her eye. . . . I was like, ‘Oh my God! I’m so sorry!’ and she was like, ‘It’s fine, it’s fine.’”

Lopez went on to claim that Fonda “didn’t care” about the blood blister because “she is such a gangster b—-.”

Fonda’s obsession with Lopez’s marriage with Affleck is both bizarre and disturbing. While it seems like Lopez is taking it in stride, we can’t help but think that Hanoi Jane needs to get a life.
