Personally I never watch anything with Jane Fonda.
Check it out:
Lee Daniels, director and producer of the film The Butler did a Q&A with Politico’s Patrick Gavin.
The film has already become a target for Vietnam-era veterans and their supporters because Jane Fonda was cast as First Lady Nancy Reagan.
Fonda’s activism against the Vietnam War and her vitriolic attacks on U.S. troops as well as her praise for repressive government systems made her quite possibly the worst choice in the universe to play President Ronald Reagan’s wife.
Was Fonda deliberately cast in the role as an insult?
If an actress stands for most of what Reagan was against, Fonda is the poster femme.
