‘Every time you feel like sticking a knife in shit, do it hard’: Jane Fonda reveals her secret to getting over a painful breakup: an elastic band
Jane Fonda has revealed the secret to getting over a painful romantic breakup The two-time Oscar winner said she decided to stop dating when she turned 80 Fonda, 85, has been married three times and has had several different relationships
With three marriages and several relationships in her 85 years, Jane Fonda has learned a thing or two about breakups.
And now the Hollywood veteran has revealed the secret to getting over the pain of a romantic meltdown without going to the punches: a rubber band.
“For anyone going through a painful breakup, let me give you a piece of advice that my therapist gave me,” she says. “Put a rubber band around your wrist and every time you feel like sticking a knife in your shit, do it hard.
“It takes you out of it, it works.”
Fonda says she got the advice while separating from media mogul Ted Turner, whom she says she adored, even though they divorced in 2001 after a decade together.
The two-time Oscar winner, who recently announced she is in remission from cancer, said she stopped dating when she turned 80 but has thrown herself into her work. He has three movies this year, including 80 For Brady, a comedy that follows octogenarian football fans trying to make it to the Super Bowl.
Fonda was married to Barbarella film director Roger Vadim from 1968 to 1973
She married activist Tom Hayden in 1973 and the couple remained together until their divorce in 1990.

The film also features her frequent collaborator Lily Tomlin, 83, and other close friends Rita Moreno, 91, and her group ‘baby’ Sally Field, 76. The quartet spoke together at today’s You magazine, where Fonda described why she thinks she’s a man. friendships are different from female friendships.
‘Men [when they socialise] they tend to look at things, like cars and sports,” he says. “Women when they’re together look directly into each other’s eyes. We are not afraid to ask each other for help. I think that’s why women live longer than men.
“Sometimes it will be years when I don’t see Sally, but when we have dinner, we go deep to the soul level, very intense right away.” He then joked, “We get drunk too.”
Fonda was married to Barbarella film director Roger Vadim from 1968 to 1973, and to activist Tom Hayden from 1973 to 1990, before marrying CNN founder Turner.
After splitting from her last partner, record producer Richard Perry in 2017, she said she had given up on dating, declaring last month: “I’m happier than I’ve ever been.”
She has also continued her activism, spending her 82nd birthday in prison after being arrested with Field and Tomlin, at a climate change protest in Washington DC in 2019.
She said, “Hope is a verb…hope requires action.”
