Jane Fonda disses Robert Redford: ‘Has an issue with women’

This will sting.

Jane Fonda revealed Friday she “was in love with” Robert Redford, her on-screen partner for four films — but the “Ordinary People” director, 86, “did not like to kiss” and “has an issue with women.”

“He’s always in a bad mood, and I always thought it was my fault,” said Fonda, 85, but added that “he’s a very good person.”

The two-time Oscar winner dropped tidbits about her famous male co-stars during an interview at the Cannes Film Festival.

Fonda and Redford co-starred in “The Chase” (1966), “Barefoot in the Park” (1967), “The Electric Horseman” (1979) and “Our Souls at Night” (2017).

“The last movie I made with him was six years ago,” Fonda said, referring to the Netflix film “Our Souls at Night.”

“What was I, about 80 years old or something like that? And I finally knew I had grown up. When he would come on the set three hours late in a bad mood, I knew it wasn’t my fault.” Nonetheless, she said, “We always had a good time.”

Elsewhere in the conversation, the “Monster-in-Law” alum speculated that her “China Syndrome” co-star Michael Douglas, 78, “probably doesn’t like me.”

As for fellow “Cat Ballou” cast member Lee Marvin, she offered kind words.

“He was very funny. He was always drunk. We stayed at the same motel, and they had to carry him up the stairs,” Fonda remembered of the “tough guy” actor, who died in 1987.

Fonda also lent her acting chops to the 1972 French-Italian film “Tout Va Bien,” directed by Jean-Luc Godard.

She called him “a great filmmaker. But as a man? I’m sorry. No, no.”

Godard died in September.

Fonda also reflected on the 1981 movie “On Golden Pond,” starring her father, Henry Fonda, and legendary silver-screen actress Katharine Hepburn.

“It was one of the most glorious experiences of my life. It was absolutely wonderful,” the environmental activist divulged. “I made the movie for my father. But the person who I learned from on that movie was Katharine.”

“On Golden Pond” won three Oscars, for Best Actor (for Henry), Best Actress (for Hepburn), and Best Adapted Screenplay for Ernest Thompson.

Fonda earned a Best Supporting Actress nomination for the tearjerker, but lost to Maureen Stapleton for “Reds.”

The “Grace and Frankie” actress let it slip during the interview that she called Hepburn to congratulate her when she won the Academy Award, with the Hollywood icon joking, “You’ll never catch me!”

“The Philadelphia Story” star had won her fourth and final Oscar for “On Golden Pond.” She died in 2003.
