She’s a Hollywood screen goddess.
And on Sunday, Jane Fonda, 80, got drawn into a cringeworthy exchange with The Sunday Project’s Tommy Little, 33, during her appearance on the show.
The two time Academy Award winner was at the desk to promote her ‘In Conversation’ evening at Sydney Opera House, only to have the stand-up comic awkwardly flirt up a storm and make a cheeky reference about taking off her dress.
‘I never thought we’d live in world where she couldn’t find someone to take her dress off’: The Sunday Project’s Tommy Little, 33, makes a VERY risqué remark to iconic actress Jane Fonda (pictured), 80, in flirty interview
Co-presenter Sarah Harris first asked the Monster-in-Law actress about a candid Instagram shot of herself making toast in a dazzling sequinned ball gown.
‘Can we ask what’s happening in this Instagram post?’ journalist Sarah asked the iconic film star.
‘I live alone now, I’ve had three husbands and I’m finally on my own now,’ Jane replied.
‘You are the most stunning person on the planet’: Tommy gushed over Jane for the entire segment, with the stand-up comedian clearly a big fan of the Hollywood icon
‘I went to this fancy dress party with this incredible sequinned dress and when I got home, I couldn’t unzip it,’ she continued.
The Klute actress went on to say she was forced to sleep in the ornate designer gown, with no one on hand to help her get it off.
Clearly a big fan of the age-defying actress, Tommy couldn’t help himself from gushing over glamorous Jane.
‘I never thought we’d live in world where Jane Fonda couldn’t find someone to take her dress off,’ Tommy said, cheekily.
The comedian put on quite the flirty display throughout the entire interview, giving overt compliments to the actress who was also promoting her new film Book Club.
‘I can’t believe that I’m sitting here next to Jane Fonda,’ Tommy said early on in the segment.
‘This is such a thrill for me. What is the secret? You are the most stunning person on the planet,’ he gushed, while gazing at her wide-eyed.
‘I couldn’t unzip it’: While on the show, Jane shared a story about how she wasn’t able to unzip a sequinned gown after an event as she lives alone now, which prompted a risque comment
Elsewhere in the interview, Tommy shared a video of himself trying to reenact one of Jane’s tough workout videos, which she became famous for in the 1980s.
‘Jane I have something to show you,’ Tommy started, prompting a round of laughter from panellists Hugh Riminton, Lisa Wilkinson and Sarah Harris.
‘You show me yours and I’ll show you mine,’ Jane hilariously replied, which caused a wide smile to flash over Tommy’s face.
‘Don’t encourage him Jane,’ Hugh interrupted.
