“I was meeting a lot of performers to try to do concerts for Tom and the woman who was helping me do that introduced me to Marvin Gaye,” she recalled.

The Oscar winner added: “But then I read, apparently he had my picture on his refrigerator. I didn’t find that out until later, after he was dead.”

When it comes to her current love life, the activist said she’s over it. “I don’t have time,” Fonda told the outlet. “I am fully complete with me and my children and my grandchildren and my friends. I don’t want any more romance. I don’t have time for it.”

The actress, who has been vocal in many protests over the years, noted that no one propositions her anymore either. “Zero,” she said. “No, and I’m not lonely. I’ve never been lonely. I’ve never been bored or lonely in my life.”

Fonda, who grew up in Hollywood as daughter of actor Henry Fonda, also weighed in on some of the entertainment industry greats over the years.
