You can add Jane Fonda’s name to the seemingly long list of people who found Seth MacFarlane’s “We Saw Your Boobs” song as misogynistic. When asked about MacFarlane’s boob song, which highlighted the actresses who went nude in films, Fonda had a ton to say, and most of it was in disdain for the Family Guy writer.
Fonda was on hand at the Academy Awards to witness MacFarlane’s hosting job, and the now famous “We Saw Your Boobs” song. Fonda, who presented Best Director to Ang Lee for Life of Pi, had this to say about the cheeky song:
“What I really didn’t like was the song and dance number about seeing actresses boobs. I agree with someone who said, ‘If they want to stoop to that, why not list all the penises we’ve seen?’ Better yet, remember that this is a telecast seen around the world watched by families with their children and to many this is neither appropriate or funny.”
That’s not all. According to the veteran actress, she didn’t seem to like many of Seth MacFarlane’s quips of the night, which in her opinion put too much emphasis on clichés about women. Fonda went on to say:
“I also didn’t like the remark made about [Quvenzhane Wallis and George Clooney], or the stuff out of Ted’s mouth and all the comments about what women do to get thin for their dresses. Way too much stuff about women and bodies, as though that’s what defines us.”
Do you agree with Jane Fonda’s thoughts on Seth MacFarlane’s hosting just at the Academy Awards? Are you surprised Fonda spoke out about Seth’s hosting gig?
