The actress Jane Fonda (80) is for a strict treatment of men who have been charged with sexual misconduct.
They should not be allowed to return to their job in the entertainment industry without changing their behavior. That said the two-time Oscar winner, according to US media reports on Thursday night (local time) in New York at a promotional event for her current HBO documentary “Jane Fonda in Five Acts”.
Fonda said, “There are ways to help men become empathetic.” The actress sees the problem in that empathy in the existing male rule is an anathema. “Men are trained not to be compassionate. So it does not matter if it takes two weeks, a year, or two years. It depends on what changes they have undergone. “
Fonda named Charlie Rose, the host of the eponymous US talk show on PBS, as an example of someone who did not do this work. Rose was fired from two shows last fall after several women accused him of sexual misconduct.
Fonda received two Oscars for best actress in “Klute” (1971) and “Coming Home” (1978). Since September 13, her comedy “Book Club” is in German cinemas. On September 24, the HBO documentary “Jane Fonda in Five Acts,” which features stages of her life, premieres in the US.
