*Jane Fonda has opened up about who she regrets not sleeping with in the entertainment industry.

In a new interview with The New York Times, the Hollywood star and activist set the record straight about her experiences with various celebrities, including Marlon Brando and Marvin Gaye.

Fonda and Brando starred together in the 1966 drama “The Chase,” and she described the late actor as “disappointing” when it comes sexual intimacy.  

She also reveals that while she doesn’t “think about” missing her chance with Che Guevara, she does regret not sleeping with Marvin Gaye 

“Who I do think about, and what is a great regret is Marvin Gaye. He wanted to and I didn’t. I was married to Tom [Hayden],” she said. “I was meeting a lot of performers to try to do concerts for Tom and the woman who was helping me do that introduced me to Marvin Gaye… apparently he had my picture on his refrigerator. I didn’t find that out until later, after he was dead.”

When it comes to women, Fonda calls her “Blue Bird” co-star Ava Gardner “the sexiest woman I ever met.”

“Without question,” she said. “She was a mensch, a true mensch, and she was a babe.”

In 2018, Fonda, who’s been married three times, spoke  with PEOPLE about how she was once defined by the men in her life. 

“Up until my sixties, I was to an extent, defined by the men in my life,” she said. “I was brought up to please. I wanted my father to love me so I would turn myself into a pretzel to be what he wanted me to be, not necessarily what I already was.”

She added, “It took me getting into my sixties, and then I began to become who I was supposed to be all along.”
