Megyn Kelly Blasts Jane Fonda: Many Vets Still Call Her 'Hanoi Jane'
Megyn Kelly stood by her decision to ask Jane Fonda about her plastic surgery during a segment of her show Monday, bitingly reminding her audience that the Oscar-winning actress and activist's name is "synonymous with outrage."

Last September, Kelly asked Fonda, who was a guest on her show along with Robert Redford promoting their new film Our Souls At Night, about what she thought about plastic surgery. At the time, Fonda looked offended by the question, and responded with a dismissive, "We really want to talk about that right now?

Megyn Kelly Bashes ‘Not Proud of America’ Jane Fonda for Criticizing Her Interviewing Skills
Despite professing a “what other people think of me is none of my business” mantra, the namesake host of “Megyn Kelly Today” took three minutes of January 22 airtime to rebuff criticism she’s received from Jane Fonda. “Honestly, she has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive,” Kelly said.

Tension between the host and two-time Oscar winner dates back to a September 2017 appearance on Kelly’s show. While promoting “Our Souls at Night” alongside co-star and Sundance Institute founder Robert Redford, Fonda was asked why she’s “not proud to admit” that she’s had plastic surgery. “We really want to talk about that now?” Fonda replied at the time.

Last week, Fonda told Variety that she was “stunned” by Kelly’s question — “It was so inappropriate. It showed that

Megyn Kelly Lambasts Jane Fonda: Her "Name Is Synonymous With Outrage"

Apparently Megyn Kelly has had enough. The Today anchor laid into Jane Fonda on her 9 a.m. program Monday, and used Fonda’s actions during the Vietnam War to make her point.

The bad blood harks back to September, when Kelly asked Fonda about her plastic surgery. It was the premiere week of Kelly’s program, and Fonda was on the show along with Robert Redford to promote their Netflix film Our Souls at Night about the romance between two octogenarian neighbors.

Why Certain Films Do Well During Awards Season

Neil Calloway looks at why a certain type of movie will always get the nod at the Oscars…

This coming Tuesday sees the announcement of this year’s Oscar nominations. We’ve already had the Golden Globes, and if you really care about that sort of thing, the Baftas are next month. We’re deep into awards season, and you can probably tell which will win big at the Academy Awards this year. It’s the same sort of film that always does.

You know The Post and Darkest Hour are going to do well with nominations, and The Last Jedi – despite raking in more than a small country does in a year – won’t get any apart from a few technical nods. The Oscars like big, important films about big, important issues, starring big important, actors and directed by big, important directors. I haven’t seen The Post yet

Nicolas Cage is speaking out in support of the #MeToo movement.

“Every opportunity I get to work with a female director – one of the best movies I ever made was Valley Girl and I just did a picture called Inconceivable with Maria Pulera and there was a strong female cast,” Cage, 54, told People at the Entertainment Studios Suite at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on Friday. “I realize that the talent and creativity needs to be heard and supported and cherished.”

Jane Fonda on Donald Trump, Megyn Kelly and Her Sundance Documentary

Jane Fonda on Donald Trump, Megyn Kelly and Her Sundance Documentary
“To drink or not to drink?” That is one of the many questions that Jane Fonda poses in her new documentary. Lounging around, getting her hair done, the Oscar-winning actress starts to dish about her beverage of choice. “They only serve wine,” she laughs. “I don’t drink champagne. I don’t drink wine. I drink vodka. I’ll have to bribe somebody.”

“Jane Fonda in Five Acts,” which premieres on Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival, is an intimate portrait of a movie star and activist. Director Susan Lacy (“Spielberg,” “American Masters”) interviewed Fonda a dozen times. She planned trips with Fonda to revisit moments from her past, and conducted secondary interviews with her pal Robert Redford, her ex-husbands and her kids.

Fonda spoke to Variety about the movie, which airs on HBO later this year.

Why did you agree to do a documentary?

I had written a book already and so I was used to

‘The Long Dumb Road’ Film Review: Buddy Comedy Travels Familiar Path, But the Company’s Great
It’s not always a compliment to note that a movie feels like the right fit for Sundance. Festival faves often deflate when they reach the real world, unable to survive without the eager enthusiasm of film fans. The Sundance premiere “The Long Dumb Road” is undeniably cut from familiar cloth. But it’s got enough charm to keep it buoyant long after Robert Redford waves the last blogger goodbye. As with all road movies, its success rides on the company we’re required to keep. Happily, our two leads are unflaggingly delightful companions. The trip begins when naïve teen Nat (Tony Revolori, “The...

A year ago, on the eve of the inauguration of our 45th president – and a massive pink-hatted protest against said man to be staged in Washington – Robert Redford came out on the stage of the Eccles Theater and, without mentioning the orange elephant in the room, stressed the need for standing up: for the environment, for our democracy, for truth, for women's rights, for our rights as citizens, for the right to be seen and heard. "We stay away from politics," he'd said, before introducing a documentary about fighting climate

Sundance: Robert Redford Calls #MeToo and Time's Up Movements "A Tipping Point"

As the 2018 Sundance Film Festival got underway Thursday in Park City, Sundance Institute founder Robert Redford hailed the #MeToo movement and the Time’s Up initiative that are forcing Hollywood, both in the mainstream and indie film worlds, to confront gender inequality and sexual harassment.

“It’s kind of a tipping point,” he said. “It’s changing the order of things so that women will have a stronger voice. They didn’t have it before. Too much control by the male dominance. Now I think it’s going to be more even-handed. I think the role for women to be able to step forward...
