Jane Fonda Admits She Wasn't a Good Mother

She, however, claims to have a second chance now that her children have kids of their own.

Jane Fonda treasures her close bond with her grandchildren - because they've given the veteran actress-turned-activist a "second chance" to repair her relationships with her kids. The star had daughter Vanessa with her first husband Roger Vadim in 1968, and a son, Troy, with activist Tom Hayden five years later.

But Fonda admits she was an absent mum for most of their young lives - because she was too focused on her anti-Vietnam War efforts. She says, "I don't think I taught them much. I don't think I was that good of a mother. But I did always tell them the truth and I hope they can always learn from my mistakes."

"I was just moving from Barbarella into an anti-war activist when my daughter was born and I was out there on the barricades and I should have brought her with me but I didn't. I wasn't around a lot."

And now that her children have kids of their own, she's making a big effort to be a part of their lives. She adds, "That's what's so great about being a grandmother - it gives you a second chance."
