Understanding Jane Fonda

'Peace' preems in Gotham at MoMA

In the IFC dramedy “Peace, Love and Misunderstanding,” Jane Fonda plays a free-loving, pot-smoking granny. So, it came as no surprise that her co-stars couldn’t stop gushing about her hip quotient at Monday’s Gotham preem at MoMA.

“She’s just really cool off-camera,” said Jeffrey Dean Morgan. “She never went into her trailer. She just hung out with us and the crew. I might say that (about others) because I lie about shit all the time. But Jane is the real deal. I’m not lying.”

Chace Crawford concurred, noting Fonda’s interest in learning about his Texas backstory.

“Whatever it is she’s doing, I want to be a part of it,” said Crawford. “I wish I had more scenes with her. She is just extremely engaging and charmed the pants off of me.”

Though Fonda earned an affable reputation on set, she eschewed reporters at the Royalton afterparty, instead holding court at a backroom table while chatting with pals like Gloria Steinem.
