Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda Talk About Friendship and Comedy [Watch]


With the premiere of the fifth season of their hit Netflix show, Grace and Frankie, set to premiere on Jan. 18, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are making the media rounds, stopping by “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

After watching these ladies on the big and small screen for over 40 years, there’s not much that we don’t know about them. Or is there? Lily began to tell Jimmy a story about meeting and wanting to work with Richard Pryor back in the day and somehow,  it ended at a porno movie.

What? We’ll let her tell the story about the two comedic icons spending the day together.

“[Richard] challenged me to go to a porno movie,” she said. “I said, “I will go but I’ll pay my own way.’ And we went to a porno movie and we sat there and we watched it. It had some kind of medical underpinnings to it. I can’t remember, it was 50 years ago. It was a bonafide porno movie.”

She went on to downplay the story saying it wasn’t such a big thing. “My brother showed me porno movies when I was like 3 years old. He showed me when he was like 12.” OK

That led to Jimmy asking Jane if she’d ever paid to see a porn movie in the theater and Jane’s response was well, honest.

“Yeah, I paid to see ‘Deepthroat.'” But she went with her husband so all is right with the world.  Now we have a little better insight into the lives of Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.
