Jane Fonda was ‘weak in the knees’ when she met Tom Brady: ‘Just shocked’


Fonda did a little tap dance after meeting Brady.

Jane Fonda recalled how she felt after meeting football legend Tom Brady for her film “80 for Brady” on Saturday. According to The Hollywood Reporter.

“My knees went weak when he walked into my trailer,” Fonda recalled. “I am amazed by such skills. If someone is the best in the world at what they do, you have to respect and honor that. I’m just amazed.”

While Brady, whose team will soon be playing in the NFL playoffs, did not attend the film’s premiere, he did come to Fonda’s dressing room to introduce himself during filming for the film.

“He was kind and humble, which is hard to believe given how good he was at what he did, but it’s true. He was also sweet and polite,” recalls the 85-year-old screen legend.
