Back in September, while on a promotional tour for their movie Our Souls at Night, Jane Fonda and Robert Redford were invited on NBC's Megyn Kelly Today to discuss the film.
Unfortunately, their chat didn't go as well as planned, and the interview took a turn for the awkward.
At one point during the show, Kelly deviated from the main topic of conversation to question Fonda about her appearance. The former Fox News host brought up Fonda's history with plastic surgery, despite the fact that the actress publicly stated that she was not proud about having work done.
“You’ve been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically. You admit you’ve had work done, which I think is to your credit. But you look amazing,” Kelly said to Fonda.
“I read that you said you’re not proud to admit you’ve had work done. Why not?” she asked.
Unimpressed by Kelly's probing, the Oscar-winning actress responded with,"We really want to talk about that right now?”
Kelly attempted to correct the situation by complimenting Fonda, but the damage was already done. Fonda redirected the interview back to the topic of the movie, but you could cut through the tension with a knife.
It's been months since the cringe-worthy interview took place, but it looks like Fonda and Kelly's feud is ongoing. Fonda has since repeatedly criticized Kelly, and things were no different during her latest interview with Variety.
Fonda opened up about how she really felt when Kelly brought up plastic surgery, and claimed that Kelly's out of line questioning "showed that she's not that good an interviewer."
"It wasn’t like I was upset," Fonda added. "I was stunned. It was so inappropriate."
Kelly caught wind of Fonda's criticism, and used her platform to retort. She went as far as bringing up the actress's infamous past, specifically her actions during the Vietnam War.
