I won’t be viewing Jane (Hanoi Jane) Fonda in her role as First Lady Nancy Reagan in the feature film, “The Butler“. Whether anyone who reads this blog does or does not see the movie is frankly irrelevant to me. I’m much younger than Fonda but I still recall Hanoi Jane in her glory days and feel that supporting any film project of hers is the same as condoning what she did during the Viet Nam War and what she has done since.
(Fox News) When Jane Fonda was cast as former First Lady Nancy Reagan in Lee Daniels’ forthcoming film “The Butler,” some Reagan fans were not pleased. Now, with the biographical due to hit theaters in October, a movement to boycott the movie is gaining some momentum.
Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and founder of the “Boycott Hanoi Jane Playing Nancy Reagan” Facebook page has been particularly vocal about the casting decision, given Fonda’s past frolicking with the enemy during the Vietnam War.
This week, Fonda had a simple message for Reyes and the page’s fans. “Get a life.”
