Jane Fonda: I joined the mile high club

Jane Fonda has spoken about the first time she had sex on an airplane.

The 77-year-old actress got candid about her sex life while playing a game of ‘never have I ever’ during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which aired Thursday.

The two-time Academy Award winner was married to billionaire media mogul Ted Turner from 1991 to 2001 and Jane revealed she had sex on an airplane for the first time with him nearly 30 years ago.

“I was 50 years old,” Jane explained to host Ellen of when she joined the mile-high club, a slang term used to describe fornicating on an aircraft. “It was my fourth date with Ted Turner -- he has his own plane -- and we get on the plane and he asks, ‘Are you a member of the mile-high club?’ But I didn’t know what he was talking about. And then I joined! Suddenly the seats became a bed.”

The Barbarella legend is currently promoting her new Netflix comedy Grace and Frankie, which also stars Lily Tomlin.

The series centres on two rivals who become friends after their husbands fall in love and decide to marry.

Jane previously noted Grace and Frankie was great fun to make and she is proud to be starring in a programme centred around a woman of advancing years.

"I love working on a show about older women coping with modern-day problems, like trying to find a job [or an identity] when your husband leaves you for a man, or managing an overly entitled adult child - women who came of age in the 60s and sometimes smoke a little pot when they need to just chill," she explained to
