How Jane Fonda Saved her Grandson from a Bear

Jane Fonda has had a pretty extraordinary life. Actress, activist, model, environmentalist, two-time Oscar-winner, and now scarer of bears.

Appearing Tuesday on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Fonda recalled how she once scared off a bear, saving her grandson, who was three months old at the time, after it broke into her house and peed on her antique rug.

“I was in bed and I heard this weird noise – like the rattling of a door. I got up and went into the living room and I turned around and my golden retriever came running out whelping and yelling,” Fonda said, recalling the wild story.

“I’m like, ‘what’s this?’ And I go running in – whoo! There’s a bear! Right in the middle of my small bedroom, heading right for my grandson’s crib, but I knew what to do,” Fonda said.

The actress said that she opened her bathrobe and screamed at the bear. This seemed to do the trick, scaring the bear away.

“The bear urinated on my antique rug and then turned around and sat down. I roared again and it went out to the door and it sat down. There’s the hole in the screen door that it came through. I pushed it out and slammed the glass door,” Fonda said.

When Fonda told the story, the actress and Fallon were playing a game called “Best, Worst, First,” and Fonda had to name the worst uninvited guest she’s ever had. Sadly for the bear, there was only one choice for Fonda.

In the “best” portion of the game, the Hollywood icon told Fallon that her best kiss (that also happened to be her first kiss) was with “Mr. Novak” leading actor James Franciscus.

In the “first” section, Fonda, who has been arrested five times while protesting, spoke about her first Zoom rally, which had so many guests in the video chat that it promptly crashed.

Fonda is famous for her activism, and once recorded her BAFTA award acceptance speech while getting arrested for protesting climate change.

6 Thoughts to “How Jane Fonda Saved her Grandson from a Bear”

  1. Jane Fonda managed to get some US military people harmed, beaten when she wooed and stood tight with the military enemy while a few US military people had been caught and beaten. I have held that in my head for decades…..a slimey actress pretending to be loved by the military enemy. She is NOTHING TO ME EXCEPT AN ENEMY.

    She met with the North Vietnamies and sat on machine gun pretending to shoot US planes out of the sky.
    This gained her the title HANOI JANE. She should have been shot as a traitor.
    When the bear roared and ran off when Hanoi Jane opened her robe he saw the ugliest bitch walking the earth.

    I guess the north Vietnamese taught her how to scare bears. I’am glad for the child but I hope I never see her as I’am VN vet.

    She knew that opening up the bathrobe and flashing the bear would scare him off. It worked well with Ted Turner,

    Socialist hater that does not appreciate all this country provided in terms of opportunity, freedom and financial success. Everything is wrong with the USA yet she stays here and profits, If she hates the country so much just leave.

    Damn, the bear must have smelled the Viet Con communist stench coming from the worn-out washed-up old hag. The bear should have done all Veterans a huge favor and eaten her and then pooped her out. Hanio, Jane Forever! However, glad the child was unharmed.
