Jane Fonda on playing Nancy Reagan
Politico ^ | 11/19/2012 | Caitlin McDevitt

Former first lady Nancy Reagan isn’t worried about Jane Fonda playing her in “The Butler,” according to the actress.

"I know that she was happy that I was doing it, and I sent some questions to her that she answered,” Fonda said Sunday after receiving the Los Angeles Press Club's Visionary Award, Variety reports.

Hoping to portray Reagan accurately, Fonda reached out with questions and made changes to the film script.

Libs won’t watch it because it’s about Reagan, Conservatives won’t watch it because Fonda is in it. And for you Lee Child fans, about Tom Cruise portraying Jack Reacher in “One Shot” - beyond stupid.

Won’t give a dime to this film. I hope it flops at the box office, altho the filthy, stinking traitor will undoubtedly get an OSCAR for it.

Early on, during my time in the Air Force, I knew some former Vietnam POWs. One told me he never felt more enraged than to hear Hanoi Jane’s recorded voice over the camp’s loudspeakers, exhorting the communist side, and chiding our guys as murderers.

The bitch should’ve been hanging from a lamppost.

It’s a friggin slap in the face, and poor Nancy is too old to figure it out.

It’s a disgrace.

The conservative hating icons of the left, write, direct, and act in movies that will become the public’s image, of the icons of conservatism.

Poor Ronald Reagan must be turning over in his grave. No surprise here though, she gave birth to Ron Reagan Jr., a real jerk.

I have several Fonda pistol targets. This is one of them. When I go to the range I pass them around & say now don’t fire this but make copies with it. Amazing how the younger set digs shooting holes in Hanoi Jane’s ugly mug.

old Jane Fonda does not have the talent for the job and at her age she couldn’t get away with the movies she made 30 years ago.

Hey, let us not get too worked up over this traitor playing a former First Lady.

We have an illegal alien muslim statist anti-American pro-infanticide imposter in the office of POTUS. To my mind, what they do in the movies pales in relation to THAT!

Update. According to this report, Fonda has asked to "tone down" the meanness of Nancy in the original script.

I thought the part was too mean," Fonda told NBC 4 anchor Robert Kovacik in a Q&A at the Millennium Biltmore hotel, in a "lightning round" Q&A after she received the Los Angeles Press Club's inaugural Visionary Award. So she sought Butler's permission to tone down the role, saying she didn't want the the character to do anything mean that Reagan didn't do in real life.

Gee, I wonder if this flick will be nothing more than an attack piece on the Reagans, especially Nancy.
