Jane Fonda says she kept her Oscar trophies hidden while married to her second husband Tom Hayden.
"I wanted to play down the Hollywood part of me," she told Dave Karger in his book "50 Oscar Nights."
People published excerpts from the book, which is set to be released on January 23.
Jane Fonda says she used to keep her Oscar trophies hidden during her marriage to political activist Tom Hayden, according to an excerpt published by People from Dave Karger's forthcoming book, "50 Oscar Nights."
Instead of celebrating her career achievements, Fonda said that she didn't have her awards on display.
"I wanted to play down the Hollywood part of me," Fonda explained to Karger in the book, per People.
The "Grace and Frankie" actor married Hayden in 1973. They have two children together: A son, Troy O'Donovan Garity, and a daughter, Mary Luana Williams. The couple divorced in 1990.
A year later, in 1991, Fonda married her third husband, CNN founder Ted Turner. It was during her marriage to Turner that her perspective on displaying her trophies changed.
"Then I married Ted Turner, and his office was wall-to-wall trophies," she told Karger, per People. "I thought, 'He can display every frigging one of his trophies — why the hell can't I?'"
Even though she divorced Turner in 2001, Fonda says she keeps her awards on display.
"Now I have them very prominently displayed on a bookcase in my living room," she added, per People.
Fonda has been nominated for an Academy Award seven times in her career. She has won the award twice, once in 1972 for "Klute" and once in 1979 for "Coming Home."
Karger's book "50 Oscar Nights" is set to be released on January 23.
A representative for Fonda did not immediately respond to a request for comment sent outside regular business hours.
