Jane Fonda is proof that sex can get better with age. The Academy Award winner, who is currently starring as a network chief on HBO's new drama The Newsroom, says she's crazy in love.
In an interview, the legendary actress, 74, reveals how she discovered "true intimacy" with her live-in love, famous record producer Richard Perry.
"When I had my knee replaced just over two and a half years ago, I found a lover. His name is Richard Perry, he is 70 and he is a music producer," Fonda told the U.K. newspaper The Sun. "When I moved in with him I was still using crutches; we haven't been apart since."
The sexy septuagenarian admits that despite her many high-profile relationships -- including marriages to French filmmaker Roger Vadim (1965-1973), liberal politician Tom Hayden (1973-1989) and media mogul Ted Turner (1991-2001 -- she's only now found the real thing.
"The only thing I have never known is true intimacy with a man," she said. "I absolutely wanted to discover that before dying. It has happened with Richard."
And Fonda continues with more intimate revelations of her own: "I feel totally secure with him. Often, when we make love, I see him as he was 30 years ago," she explained. "At 74, I have never had such a fulfilling sex life. When I was young I had so many inhibitions -- I didn't know what I desired."
