Jane Fonda regrets missile picture
Wed, 11 Jul 2012 7:51a.m.
Veteran actress Jane Fonda will always regret the controversial 1972 photograph showing her sitting on a missile launcher aimed at US soldiers, insisting she has "paid heavily" for the infamous image.
The Barbarella icon caused outrage in the US and earned the nickname 'Hanoi Jane' when she was snapped sitting on an anti-aircraft battery in Hanoi during the Vietnam War.
Fonda admits the backlash hit her hard and has affected her ever since - and she will always chastise herself for the image.
She tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "In 1972 I was photographed, laughing, sitting on a North Vietnamese missile launcher aimed at American soldiers, without realising what I was doing.
"I paid heavily for that mistake, and am still criticised for it. I'll go to my grave with regrets about that picture."

The dear lady should feel no shame at all ...the only American heroes of the atrocity known as the Vietnam war were the people like her that tried to stop it. The Vietnamese were repelling foreign invaders and the photo has probably been used against her by the "conservative" element in her own country, whereas actually the USA may one day be held to account for this and other illegal wars which have killed millions of innocent people.
