Jane Fonda on Donald Sutherland: “A brilliant actor and a complex man…I am heartbroken”


Jane Fonda has posted a remembrance for Donald Sutherland on Instagram.

Sutherland and Fonda starred together in Alan Pakula’s classic film, “Klute,” in 1971. (Fonda won an Oscar.) They had a personal and political relationship. Of the latter, they were each anti Vietnam War activists. When Fonda says she’s “heartbroken,” she means it.

A big loss.
