She's just being honest.
At 83, Jane Fonda — who's been married and divorced three times — is not interested in pursuing any new sexual relationships, she revealed in a Harper's Bazaar April 2021 cover story.
However, if that were to change, she admits she would only be interested in having sex with a younger man.
"I don't want to be in a relationship, a sexual relationship, again," the actress-activist told the magazine, as reported by Page Six. "I don't have that desire. Do I fantasize? Yes … That I meet a professor or a researcher, somebody in that line who is really capable of loving, of cherishing a woman, so that I could test myself and see if I could show up."
She continued, "I think maybe now I could [show up], but the problem is that, like a man, I would want a younger man," she confessed. "Isn't that awful? It's a thing about skin. I would want a younger man, and I'm too vain."
Looking back at her previous marriages and romances, "What I've had to really think about is that I'm not really capable [of intimacy]," she explained. "It's not them. It's me. If a guy had come along and said, 'Come on, Fonda, show up,' I would have run away scared. I was attracted to men who never would have done that to me because they couldn't necessarily show up themselves. I didn't know that at the time, but now I know."
The two-time Oscar winner was previously married to director Roger Vadim, activist Tom Hayden and CNN founder Ted Turner.

She's never shied away from being frank about her sex life. In 2018, she told "Extra," "I'm not dating anymore, but I did up until a couple of years ago. I'm 80. I've closed up shop down there!"
From 2009 to 2017, she was in a serious relationship with music producer Richard Perry. "At 74, I've never had such a fulfilling sex life," Jane told The Sun in 2012 while she and Richard were together.
"The only thing I have never known is true intimacy with a man. I absolutely want to discover that before dying. It has happened with Richard, I feel totally secure with him," she added. "Often, when we make love, I see him as he was 30 years ago."
