Jane Fonda - Jane Fonda Too Ill To Attend Toronto International Film Festival

Illness has forced Jane Fonda to scrap a planned trip to the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada, where she was scheduled to promote new movie Peace, Love & Misunderstanding.
The actress was supposed to join director Bruce Beresford and co-star Catherine Keener at the festival, but pulled out over the weekend (10-11Sep11).
And in a post on her blog on Monday (12Sep11), she wrote, "Bummer! I was to be at the Toronto Film Festival today and tomorrow to support my newest film... but I have been sick with a persistent and very contagious bug for the last 5 days and had to cancel the trip."
Fonda has also pulled an appearance on U.S. TV talk show The View to promote her new book.
But she's making the most of her sick days: "One thing being sick has afforded me is the down time to watch college football and the U.S. Open (tennis tournament). The University of Michigan versus Notre Dame game - the first night game in Michigan's stadium - was extraordinary. With three minutes remaining and Notre Dame up by a considerable lead, I emailed my friend Frank Belatti who is a Notre Dame alum and runs a program there, to congratulate him on his team's win.
"No sooner had i hit send, than Michigan scored 3 touchdowns in a row (in the last 3 minutes!!) The amazing Denard Robinson threw the winning pass with 2 seconds to go. (Boyfriend) Richard (Perry) is a U of M alum so you can imagine the jubilation.
"Yesterday, though, things were glum when Serena Williams lost. We both adore her."
