“I’ll tell you something that I haven’t acheived, which is a successful marriage,” Fonda, 83, replied.  “But the second part of your question is, ‘Do you want to?’ I don’t want to,” she continued. “See I live by myself. I don’t have any guy who doesn’t want a woman who is willing to be angry and who doesn’t want a woman who is willing to be angry and stand up.”

“I’m not threatening anybody. I can watch whatever I want on TV. So I don’t ever want to be married again. But it’s something I wish I’d been better at.” she said.
