JANE Fonda has been pleading Nancy Reagan for forgiveness — after she portrayed the beloved former first lady in The Butler.
Sources say that while Nancy, 92, approved of Jane’s acting job in the critically acclaimed movie, she will never forgive Fonda or her real-life role as “Hanoi Jane.”
Jane, a fierce opponent of the Vietnam War, traveled to North Vietnam and was photographed sitting on an enemy anti-aircraft gun, seeming to support the communists.
“Nancy will never forgive or forget what Fonda did because she knows that President Reagan would never forgive her,” a source said.
“So many U.S. servicemen died for our country in the war, and Jane is still viewed as a traitor by many vets.”
Fonda, 75, seemed to be back to her old ways when she did a promotional interview for the film and wore a “Hanoi Jane” T-shirt – showing her back in the day with a clenched, raised fist.
“If Nancy had any lingering thoughts about forgiving Jane, those were erased by her wearing that shirt,” said the source.
“It was a slap in the face to Nancy – and to Ronnie!”
