Jane Fonda is well known for her litany of colorful films and leotards, but the leggy actress also has an appetite for sticking it to the man. In the 1970s, Fonda was a Vietnam protestor, touring military towns and universities speaking on behalf of the soldiers she felt were wrongly deployed to Vietnam. "I was infuriated as I learned just how much our soldiers were being lied to about why we were fighting in Vietnam and I was anguished each time I would be with a young man who was traumatized by his experiences," Fonda writes on her website. In 1972, Fonda made a trip to North Vietnam where she broadcast 10 radio shows that denounced the U.S. government and military leaders. Fonda's trip became the subject of controversy when a photo surfaced of Fonda sitting in an anti-aircraft battery in Hanoi. Fonda apologized for the incident in a 1988 interview with Barbara Walters, saying, "I will go to my grave regretting the photograph of me in an anti-aircraft gun, which looks like I was trying to shoot at American planes. It hurt so many soldiers. It galvanized such hostility. It was the most horrible thing I could possibly have done. It was just thoughtless." Despite frequent bad press, Fonda continues to insist her actions were always in protest of the U.S. government and not soldiers.
