London, Dec 10 Veteran actress Jane Fonda has never considered herself a sex symbol, insisting she has worked hard to be taken seriously as an actress.
Fonda became a global pin-up girl after landing the role of the futuristic siren in the 1968 cult classic “Barbarella”, reports dailystar.co.uk.
“I think ‘Barbarella’ is a charming, camp movie, not very sexy, but at the time many young boys had their first experiences and I’m glad of that. I think it’s kind of cool that I aroused a lot of young men at that time but it’s pretty tame compared to what you see now,” she said.
“I’ve never thought of myself as a sex symbol. I don’t really care one way or another, I just like to work and it was fun to do that and I’m glad I went on to make movies like ‘Klute’ and ‘Coming Home’ when I began to produce and I’m glad I didn’t get stuck on the ‘Barbarella’ mode,” she added.
