Jane Fonda’s movie goes to Toronto and book is a best seller

HollywoodNews.com: Jane Fonda has gotten the last laugh on QVC. This week her book, “Prime Time,” hits number 2 on the New York Times Best Seller list of hardcover tomes on advice. Remember when QVC dropped her at the last minute? Now “Prime Time” is a huge hit and Fonda is hard at work on the sequel. She’s still making appearances for it though. Watch her “Charlie Rose” interview on YouTube, it’s fascinating.

Meanwhile, Fonda is heading to Toronto next week for the premiere of her new film, “Peace, Love and Misunderstanding.” Distributors are lining up to see this Bruce Bereford directed family saga that co-stars Catherine Keener, Kyle Maclachlan, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Elizabeth Olsen–the latter is hot right now from her upcoming “Martha May Marcy Marlene.”

Fonda plays Grace, a hippie, pot smoking mom who is reunited with her adult daughter (Keener) and her kids after Maclachlan leaves them. Fonda’s role is hilarious and just right for her. She tells me: “Catherine’s character shows up with her kids. They haven’t spoken in 2o years since my character got caught selling pot at her wedding.” Fonda’s Grace is her daughter’s polar opposite, too. “She sleeps with all the good looking guys in town!” Jane told me.
