The Morning After actress's foremost romance goes back to the 60s. She married French film director Roger Vadim, in a small ceremony, in 1965. The couple split up in 1973 and during their seven-year-long nuptial, the duo welcomed a daughter.  

Roger, who was ten years older than Fonda, and married twice before her, went on to find two more wives before his passing, in 2000. The Oscar-winning actress's most notable romantic stint was with fellow political activist, Tom Hayden.  

She married Tom three days after her divorce from Roger in 1973 and went on to welcome a son and adopted a daughter. The duo's seventeen-year-long marriage was a lot more than just a conjugal tie. Together, Fonda and Tom advocated for a peaceful world and contended for civil rights and anti-war causes. The pair announced their split in 1990.

Almost a year after her divorce from Hayden, Fonda would go on to wed for the third time. The Academy winner married television producer, Ted Turner, in 1991, and got divorced from him in 2001. The duo didn't have any children together but they formed a beautiful blended family with their kids from their previous marriage.  

Fonda and Turner, who she calls her "favorite ex-husband" had an amicable split, and remain close to this day. After Turner, the Monster-in-Law actress didn't walk down the aisle again, but she did keep her dating life active and spicy. Fonda's last noteworthy relationship was with music producer Richard Perry, who she dated from 2009 to 2017.

The world might think of Fonda as an icon who couldn't have it all or worse still, unlucky in love, but the veteran actress/activist begs to differ. "I'm not cut out for it," Fonda said when asked about her experience in love. Her history also includes rumored flings with Alan Delon, Jimmy Smits, and Jay Sebring.  

Who is Jane Fonda Dating?  

Was Turner her last love? Well, life's uncertainty and tendency to surprise surely don't allow the bold assumption, but so far, Fonda has maintained her relationship status as a happily single woman. The Oscar winner might be single but that doesn't mean she is in the market.

The Grace and Frankie alum announced her retirement from dating and sex in 2018. Fonda asserted the empowering fact that she didn't need a man to be happy. "I'm stronger than all the men that I've been married to," the veteran actress said as she claims to be happy on her own. 

The Oscar winner hasn't sparked any romance rumors since her heartbreaking split from Perry, but that doesn't mean Fonda has completely lost interest in men. In an explosive interview in 2021, the Julia actress opened up about her deepest fantasy.  

"I don't want to be in a relationship," Jane said before adding, "Do I fantasize? Yes, here's my fantasy." Fonda said she desires younger men like her fellow male powerhouse who audaciously associate with women half their age. "Isn't that awful? I would want a younger man, and I'm too vain," Fonda shared.

With a career flowing in every direction, Fonda, an actress, activist, fitness guru, and Philanthropist, Fonda admits she hasn't been the best mother to her three children, two daughters, and one son.

Jane welcomed her secondborn, Troy, with her then-husband, Tom Hayden, in July 1973. Fonda and Tom didn't want their son to attract unnecessary attention due to their high profile status, hence, Troy was given his paternal grandmother's maiden surname, Garity.  

Troy is an actor and has shown his acting chops in Ballers, On Golden Pond, and more. The Oscar winner's daughter, Mary Luana Williams, is her only adopted kid. Fonda and Hayden came across Mary during their joint activism. Mary is a social activist and author. Fonda has credited Mary for making her feel complete.
