Jane Fonda made an appearance on 'Watch What Happens Live' Thursday night, where the actress and political activist revealed that she once met Vladimir Putin, long before he became the President of Russia.
Fonda shared that, back in the early '90s, when she was married to Ted Turner, the couple traveled to what was then known as Leningrad for Turner's Goodwill Games. "We landed at the airport and the person who picked us up, and drove us around, was Vladimir Putin. He was the travel guide. He was like our interpreter at the time," shared Fonda, who said that it was back in the early 1990s. Fonda also shared how, even back then, Putin showed his ruthless side.
"His wife had gotten sick and she was heading to the hospital. He told us that in the car and Ted said, 'You have to go to the hospital. You have to go to the hospital to check on your wife,' and he wouldn't. Vladimir Putin wouldn't do it. He stayed with us," recalled Fonda.
