Jane Fonda: I'll Take Vietnam Photo Op Mistake 'To My Grave'
Jane Fonda has already apologized for posing with members of the Viet Cong, an act that permanently stained her among many Americans as "Hanoi Jane."
The future Oscar winner sat on an anti-aircraft gun, posed for pictures and sang songs with members of the North Vietnamese military.
Some Americans will never forgive the actress for her actions, but Fonda reiterated her apology in the strongest terms possible during a new interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“I made one unforgivable mistake when I was in North Vietnam, and I will go to my grave with this,” Jane Fonda says on the Oprah Winfrey Network....
"I don't know if I was set up or not,” she said. “I was an adult. I take responsibility for my actions...."
As everyone was laughing and singing, Fonda was led to a gun site, where she sat down ... As she walked away, Fonda says she suddenly realized that the pictures would be seen in the United States — and they would not look good.
“There were no planes, the gun was not operable. It didn’t matter. This is an image that belied everything that I was,” Fonda said.
