    Your second sentence is just begging for another play on words re: this topic! I'm so bad.

    I think the older you get, the less your brain filters out what shouldn't be said. I've seen this with a lot of senior citizens I've been with. Maybe that's what happened with Jane. No excuses for it, just saying.

    Maybe it's time for NBC to work with a 7-second time delay or something. Didn't another female movie star say the F word just last month during an NBC interview? :rolleyes:

    O/T But I hope I look like her when I'm 70. Sheesh.

    Children have no business watching news programs like that anyway, IMO. I think it was an innocent slip - c**t was the name of the monologue she was asked to do. Meridith's face in the clip cracks me up!

    Just watched the video. What an idiot! It just goes to show that actors usually only sound intelligent when someone else writes their words!

    I really cannot see what is the big deal. She was invited onto the Today show to talk about her new role in "The Vagina Monologues". Her monologue is titled "C***." In her enthusiasm talking about her role in this award-winning and very popular play in which all kinds of slang words for woman's anatomy are blunty and openly used, she mentions the word around which her monologue revolves. She didn't call somebody a C***. Yes, it is too bad that it slipped out but it was an innocent mistake and hardly worth the outcry. :rolleyes:

    I don't know, I heard my mom saying a lot of things I never thought she would say. But, after I read the article it was stated that was the name of the monologue so she may not have been politically correct but she was accurate.

    We just need to cut Jane some slack. Kids shouldn't be viewing news programs anyway. Much too disheartening for them to start their day.

    I think in some instances that older people have a G.A.S. that is broken and just want to shake up the rest.Not saying this is the case but Jane isn't known for being reticent. LOL!

    I hope I live long enough so that I can say anything I want and people just have to put up with me because I'm a senior citizen.

    This post cracked me up! Thanks Jeana I would have never thought about it that way. There was another posts of yours in the NH forum a long while back that still makes me laugh when I think of it.

    Me too, Jeana! I keep avoiding the AARP as I am not ready for the intrusion but I may have to accept it sooner than later.

    I agree. Sure, it is a wordy-dird, but she used it in a context where it made sense - they asked Fonda to do a part of the Vagina monologues with a title that has the 'C' word in it and she declined. She named the portion she declined.

    I agree, considering the topic of discussion; she "slipped". In any other setting or context it might be offensive.
