Jane Fonda wishes she'd Marvin Gaye and got it on...

In an interview with The New York Times, the actor didn't hold back as she spoke about her costars over the years – calling Marlon Brandon "disappointing" – and revealing her biggest regret: turning Marvin Gaye down. "Who I do think about, and what is a great regret is Marvin Gaye. He wanted to and I didn't. I was married to Tom [Hayden]. I was meeting a lot of performers to try to do concerts for Tom and the woman who was helping me do that introduced me to Marvin Gaye," the 82-year-old said.

"Please tell me his pickup line included the words' sexual healing'," reporter Maureen Dowd added during their conversation, to which Jane replied: "I needed some but he didn't say that, no. But then I read, apparently he had my picture on his refrigerator. I didn't find that out until later, after he was dead."
