Fonda also suggested that Redford had “an issue with women” but clarified that he is a “very good person”. The pair have starred in four movies together, including “Barefoot in the Park” and “Our Souls at Night”.
Jane Fonda shades co-star Robert Redford, saying he “did not like to kiss” during their on-screen romantic scenes and has “an issue with women,” but also admits she was once “in love with” him for his sense of humor.
It seems like not all on-screen chemistry translates to real life for Jane Fonda and Robert Redford. According to Fonda, Redford did not enjoy filming kissing scenes with her. The pair has appeared in four movies together, including “Barefoot in the Park” and “The Electric Horseman.”
During the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, Fonda quipped that Redford “did not like to kiss.” She admitted that she never brought it up with him, even though he often appeared to be in a bad mood on set. However, Fonda was quick to clarify that Redford is a “very good person,” but he just happened to have an “issue with women.”
Despite the alleged tension between the two actors, Fonda admitted that she once had a crush on Redford for his sense of humor. The pair reunited for 2017’s “Our Souls at Night,” and Fonda revealed that while Redford remained the same, she had grown up by that point.
Fonda’s latest comments about Redford’s refusal to kiss his co-stars contradict what she revealed back in 2017 about filming sex scenes with the actor. At the time, she said, “I live for sex scenes with him. He doesn’t like sex scenes, [but] he’s a great kisser.”
Redford, on the other hand, has always maintained a mutual admiration for Fonda. In a 2017 interview, he told reporters that their friendship has always been easy because of the “love” they share for each other.
