Oscar-winning Actor, Writer, Activist, Feminist, and Mom, Jane Fonda reveals about her own sexual abuse and rape in this totally transparent interview. Ms. Fonda tells how she and her own bipolar mother shared the same deep, dark secret - they had both been sexually abused and raped. Ms. Fonda talks about how she finally found forgiveness after her mother's suicide and what she loves most about being a mother herself. Ms. Fonda is sharing a lot these days, including recent reports that she's giving up sex after breaking up with longtime boyfriend, Richard Perry. "Stop asking about down there," she says. "It's closed!" But her illustrious career is far from over, with her new movie, "Book Club," in which Fonda stars alongside fellow screen legends Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen. Their characters experience a sexual awakening after reading Fifty Shades of Grey. Ms. Fonda also has a Netflix show, "Grace and Frankie," and there's talk of a remake of the famous ensemble chick flick, "9-5."
