Jane Fonda Says She Regrets Not Sleeping with Marvin Gaye: 'He Wanted To... I Was Married'

Jane Fonda is opening up about past relationships and past regrets

In a new interview with The New York Times, the Grace and Frankie star played a quick round of “Confirm or Deny,” in which she opened up about her time with various stars including Marlon Brando and Marvin Gaye.

Asked about her experience with Marlon Brando, whom she starred alongside in the 1966 drama The Chase, Jane wasn’t too impressed.

He was “disappointing,” she admitted.

When asked to confirm who she most regrets not sleeping with during her early years in Hollywood, the 82-year-old revealed that it’s not who many would think.

“Your greatest regret is that you never had sex with Che Guevara,” Times reporter Maureen Dowd asked Jane to confirm, which she quickly shut down.

“No, I don’t think about him,” Jane explained. “Who I do think about, and what is a great regret is Marvin Gaye.”

“He wanted to and I didn’t,” she admitted. “I was married to Tom [Hayden]. 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.”

The reporter pressed further, making a joke out of one of Marvin’s most famous songs.
 “Please tell me his pickup line included the words ‘sexual healing,'” Maureen asked.

“I needed some but he didn’t say that, no,” Jane said. “But then I read, apparently he had my picture on his refrigerator. I didn’t find that out until later, after he was dead.”

We’re sure Jane has stories for DAYS.
