TIMELINE OF HER THREE MARRIAGES
In September 2020, she opened about her marriages. Fonda has been married three times and revealed that she has ‘closed up shop’ and is done dating after her marriages.
The two-time Oscar winner reportedly reminisced on her past romances and shared that she was extremely happy at the time. “It’s just over – I’ve closed shop. I’m extremely happy on my own,” she reportedly said.
According to Closer Weekly, Fonda said “I do” to Roger Vadim, Tom Hayden, and Ted Turner. The "Book Club" actress married her first husband, Vadim, in 1965 and were together for three years before welcoming their only child Vanessa Vadim in September 1968.
After splitting up in 1973, she and the French film director reportedly remained on good terms. Shortly after finalizing their divorce that same year, she walked down the aisle with Hayden, and months later, in July, she gave birth to their son Troy Garity.
The former couple also adopted a baby girl Mary Launa William in 1982. They remained married for 17 years before breaking up in 1990. After her second failed marriage, she remained single for a decade before getting hitched again to Turner.
The pair wedded in 1991, and this was the "Barbarella" star's last and final marriage to Turner. Fonda and the American media mogul were married for ten years, although they never had children of their own, they parted ways in 2001.
Following her three weddings, she gave love another shot when she met music producer Richard Perry in 2009. However, this time around, Fonda did not exchange any vows, and they separated in 2017, ending their eight-year relationship.
