Jane Fonda: 'Sex scenes with Robert Redford were thrilling'

The actors have starred in four movies together.

Jane Fonda "lived for" sex scenes with frequent co-star Robert Redford, revealing he is a great kisser.

The veteran actress has starred alongside Robert in The Chase, Barefoot in the Park, and The Electric Horseman in the 1960s and 70s, and they recently reunited onscreen for Our Souls At Night.

In the film, Fonda and Redford play lovers and she insists she was thrilled to learn she would be playing opposite the movie icon again.

"I wanted to be able to fall in love with him again," she said at the Venice Film Festival in Italy. "In Barefoot in the Park, I couldn’t keep my hands off of him. I was constantly forcing myself on him. In Our Souls at Night, the dynamic of my character to his character was somewhat similar.

"I just love the fact that these films bookend our careers. We played that young love just getting married and now we play old people love and (have) old people sex. Although, in my opinion, (director) Ritesh (Batra) cut the sex scene too soon."

"(Robert) doesn’t like sex scenes,” she added. “I live for sex scenes! He’s a great kisser. It was fun to kiss him in my 20s and then to kiss him again in my almost 80s.”

And the actor had similar praise for Jane.

“From my point of view, things with Jane have always been easy,” he said. “I’ve enjoyed being with someone where things just fall into place and don’t require a lot of discussion. There’s a love there and there’s a connection there.”
