Jane Fonda was left floored when she discovered her late mother had been sexually abused as a child while reviewing her life at 59. The movie icon became a detective as she attempted to piece together the ‘puzzle’ of her life as she approached her 60th year and one piece of information she found in her mother Frances Seymour Brokaw’s health records helped her to understand why the socialite was the way she was and why she took her own life when the actress was 12. In a candid TV interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in America on Wednesday, Fonda explains, “(I was) interviewing people… (but) both my parents were dead – that’s why it’s good to do it early enough.

And be sure to ask about abuse – one in three women have been sexually abused as children and no one ever talks about it.
