Jane Fonda has once again admitted that she regrets the notorious "Hanoi Jane" picture of her posing with enemy troops during the Vietnam war. Taken in 1972, the image was met with widespread outrage in America and remains a contentious topic today.
After making an appearance in Maryland on Saturday, the Oscar-winning actress and fitness guru was met by swarms of protesters, including 50 military veterans. The crowd were holding posters of the picture with captions that read, "Forgive? Maybe. Forget? Never".
Addressing the protesters, Fonda released the following statement: "Whenever possible, I try to sit down with vets and talk with them, because I understand and it makes me sad. It hurts me and it will to my grave that I made a huge, huge mistake that made a lot of people think I was against the soldiers."
This is not the first time the 77-year-old has commented on the infamous picture. Whilst appearing on the American show 60 Minutes back in 2005, she called it "the largest lapse of judgement that I can even imagine." She also previously told ABC News that she would "lose an arm to take [the photo] back, because it sent a message that has nothing to do with me and [one that] I will live with forever and that I will regret forever."
