Fonda Regrets Visit To Vietnam Gun Site

Actress JANE FONDA has expressed regret at visiting a North Vietnamese gun site in 1972.

The BARBARELLA star earned the nickname 'Hanoi Jane' from the controversial trip but years later, Fonda admits the visit to the anti-aircraft gun site used to shoot down US pilots was a "betrayal" of America's military.

She says in an upcoming 60 MINUTES interview, "The image of Jane Fonda, Barbarella, HENRY FONDA's daughter... sitting on an enemy aircraft gun was a betrayal.

"(It was) the largest lapse of judgment that I can even imagine."

But she said she did not regret visiting Hanoi, or being photographed with American prisoners of war there.

She added, "There are hundreds of American delegations that had met with the POWs. Both sides were using the POWs for propaganda... It's not something that I will apologise for."

Fonda was one of many Americans who strongly opposed the Vietnam war.
