Donald Sutherland had an affair with Jane Fonda back in the day, and he did not shy away when talking about her private areas, namely her breasts. The two had already left their mark on Hollywood when they met due to their social activism in the ’60s, but would reconnect once more in the ’70s. Sutherland was married to Lolita actress Shirley Douglas at the time and even had a set of twins with her.
However, at the time, Sutherland was seen opposite Fonda in the thriller Klute, and their on-screen romance began to move off-screen as well. “We’d already been cast but had not started shooting,” he tells Rolling Stone. “And one day, [Fonda] made it very clear, via a somewhat provocative suggestion, that I should come home with her. And I just said, [pause] ‘OK.’”
