Jane Fonda Thinks 'The Kennedys' Pretty Good

The new TV series was criticized for being 'historically inaccurate', but Jane has shown support for the drama, calling it 'interesting' in her blog.

Veteran actress Jane Fonda has heaped praise on controversial new TV series "The Kennedys", insisting Katie Holmes did "really well" with her portrayal of Jackie Kennedy. The show, which stars Greg Kinnear as assassinated U.S. President John F. Kennedy and Holmes as his on-screen wife Jackie, hit headlines back in January when The History Channel bosses scrapped it from their broadcast schedule, citing the program as "not a fit for the History brand".

Subsequent reports suggested it was axed following pressure from surviving members of the clan, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who branded the show "historically inaccurate". However, chiefs at ReelzChannel snapped up the eight-part series and it debuted in America on Sunday, April 3.

Critics have been divided in their opinion of the show, but Fonda, who knew the Kennedy clan, is a big fan of the drama. In a post on her blog, she writes, "I watched the first part of 'The Kennedys' which I thought was pretty good."

"Kate does Jackie really well, I think. It's interesting. I knew the Kennedys and never knew that Jackie wanted a divorce before Jack ran for president. Didn't realize the extent to which father Joe ran the show. Talk about patriarchy! In that family it was quintessential!"
