Jane Fonda On Her Sex Life: 'When We Make Love, I See Him As He Was 30 Years Ago'

Whether in a leotard and a thick pair of leg warmers or stunning on the red carpet in fitted gowns, Jane Fonda has never been shy about her body. And the star made no exception when she dished with Britain's Hello! magazine about her relationship with music producer Richard Perry, 70.

"At 74, I have never had such a fulfilling sex life," Fonda shared.

The pair have been together for two and a half years. Fonda met Perry while recuperating from knee replacement surgery; since moving in together, the two haven't been apart since, Fonda said.

Fonda -- who has been married three times, most notably to eccentric billionaire Ted Turner -- told Hello! she has found a great love unlike anything she's ever experienced before:

"The only thing I have never known is true intimacy with a man. I absolutely wanted to discover that before dying. It has happened with Richard, I feel totally secure with him. Often, when we make love, I see him as he was 30 years ago."

Fonda has been heating up the silver screen as well, playing a randy ex-hippie in the film "Peace, Love and Misunderstanding." She ends up (spoiler alert!) inadvertently sharing smokin' hot Jeffrey Dean Morgan with her middle-aged daughter, played by Catherine Keener. "At this odd old age I'm becoming more glamorous than I ever was when I was meant to be," she told The Huffington Post. "I want to go against type and give hope."

Fonda's "fulfilling" sex life is clearly part of what she's termed her "third act" in her book, "Prime Time" (the stage of life after 60). In her 2011 TedxWomen talk, she envisioned a staircase as the appropriate metaphor for aging, "the upperward ascension of the human spirit bringing us into wisdom, wholeness and authenticity."

And apparently, a whole lot more fun in the sack.
