Jane Fonda is gettin' busy 24/7

Jane Fonda might be 74, but she feels about 24 in the sack! Find out who is inspiring her prowess in the bedroom -- you might be surprised!

Jane Fonda is gettin' busy 24/7

Ooh la la! Jane Fonda is having lots of sex — and she doesn't care who knows it! The 74-year-old actress gave an interview to the British tabloid The Sun where she dished on her lover and all the fun ways they're getting busy.

"When I had my knee replaced just over two and a half years ago, I found a lover. His name is Richard Perry, he is 70 and he is a music producer," Fonda told the magazine. "When I moved in with him I was still using crutches; we haven't been apart since."

Fonda — currently starring on the runaway hit HBO drama The Newsroom — said she's never felt this way in her entire life, despite being married three times to Roger Vadim (1965-1973), politician Tom Hayden (1973-1989) and media boss Ted Turner (1991-2001).

"At 74, I have never had such a fulfilling sex life. When I was young I had so many inhibitions — I didn't know what I desired."

Perry apparently has some serious talent in the bedroom department, but it seems he's inspired his lady love to be more independent and confident. Fonda revealed that she had always changed herself to make the men in her life happy, but she doesn't have to do that with Perry.

"I was always a courageous woman, capable of confronting governments, but not men. I was a chameleon, the woman men wanted me to be," she admitted.

The reason? Her dad, actor Henry Fonda, wasn't exactly the touchy-feely type.

"I don't want to make a cheap analysis, but when you have, like I did, a father incapable of showing emotion, who spends his life telling you that no one will love you if you aren't perfect, it leaves scars," she said.

Well, we're glad it's working for you, Jane. Get it, girl.
